    Former Employee - 3D Specialist in New York, NY
    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at NYU (New York University) part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked at the Laguardia Studio lab within NYU. It was pretty cool since I got to learn a lot about 3D technologies and work with amazing people. Overall I would say the pros are competitive pay compared to other on-campus jobs you can get at the university, and the access to some of the latest 3D related technologies. And if you know your stuff, you get to work on some really interesting problems and solve challenges.

    Cons

    Some aspects of the job can be difficult due to the level of knowledge needed to operate all of the different software and tooling. A lot of the clients that come in end up needing solutions that are not so cut and dry. Without having in depth knowledge of all the different tools, you'll find yourself always asking upper management for help. If you don't pay attention you can end up making expensive mistakes. Some clients are also a pain in the a** to deal with.

    Current Employee - Director in New York, NY
    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at NYU (New York University) full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits (tuition remission being tops) Plentiful learning opportunities Diverse workplace

    Cons

    Disconnect to upper management Salary is far below market norms Limited employee appreciation

    Former Contractor - Resident Assistant in New York, NY
    Recommends
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at NYU (New York University)

    Pros

    Enjoyable, plan fun programs with full support from the university. Worth it when the residents appreciate the RA. Help the residents learn, grow and explore new interests. Direct managers (building directors) were fantastic and some of the most supportive people at the university. Sometimes they offer career advice and training. They would gladly look over your resume or may even help you with a mock interview. Overall, the role was helpful in building skills that are useful for nearly any career path. From program planning to crisis-response, the role helps build a well-rounded job candidate. You can become a family with your RA team. Other RAs are willing to help you when needed and they understand when you need time to "step away" from the role.

    Cons

    Often overworked (contract says 20 hours/week max, but often work more), feels like an RA is never "off-duty" when they live where they work and residents try to reach them 24/7, the role is not consistent across location placement (and cannot choose desired location), bureaucracy in upper management. RAs are not technically considered "employees" as they are considered "paraprofessionals." While RAs are provided "free" housing, RAs are discouraged or prevented from taking other jobs to earn funds for books, groceries and other tuition/school expenses.This role is not for the faint of heart, as you may be required to respond to serious crises and wellness concerns while on or off-duty.

    Current Employee - Public Safety Dispatcher in New York, NY

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at NYU (New York University) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Distinguished university setting is beneficial on resume.

    Cons

    The security department has common sense policies and procedures on paper, but officers will boldly go against their duties. During my time there, officers refused to respond to fire alarms, fell asleep during their shifts (once during a suicide call at the officer's post), and generally failed to serve the student community. The dispatch office has been in an active construction zone for 2 years, with no end in sight. Upper management has little sway over the operations of security officers, citing the union for all their problems, and will do little to advocate on behalf of the department's dispatchers.
