      Pros

      I love working at NYU. Everyone is smart, friendly, and great at their job.

      Cons

      It's a large university so sometimes things can slow down in the pipeline due to that.

      Great Place for those who like to read and write books

      May 1, 2021 - Professor of Philosophy in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Very Small Classes - half my teaching is from books that I wrote years ago. Only three courses a year - Two in One Semester and One if the Other About 7 months teaching and 5 months off per regular PLUS sabbaticals with 0 months teaching. NOT a great place for a humanist to get rich; but a Great place to do what you like to do. I may NEVER retire.

      Cons

      In my Department, (almost) all of the graduate students are doctoral students get PAID to get their degrees- and never pay anything. But, many of the undergraduate students, especially many from the USA, graduate with demoralizing debt. This is true of almost all very well-know private research universities in the USA - but then, at almost all of these places, there's a bad thing going on.

      Work Here if you're a Masochist/ Have no Self-Respect

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Some of the people you'll work with, like the other Writing Consultants, are v nice; most of the students are adequately academically prepared and diligent.

      Cons

      Extremely exploitative: the hourly rate is impressive, nut you're not paid for enough hours to do the work properly V little control over other working conditions: I found carrying out the duties assigned ,e more and more impossible as time went on since procedures were changed with no consultation with anyone affected Disrespectful, inconsiderate management: see above, plus interrupt when you're speaking, then complain that you didn't cover something you were meant to

      Good employer, but hard time firing bad workers

      Jun 3, 2021 - Technical Assistant in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      NYU stepped up to raise the minimum wage for student workers sooner than the state required. They always accommodated flexible student schedules and I enjoyed all of my student jobs.

      Cons

      I thought as well as heard from others that there were too many lazy workers at NYU. It seems that NYU is only willing to fire people for heinous harassment, for fear of being sued. They don't fire employees that don't do work or respect their coworkers. They don't even hire employees that they know harass others unless a manager is around to see the harassment in-person. But most people watch their mouths around managers...
