    Great people to work with, but private institution

    Pros

    - TNS hires amazing people so you'll have great coworkers - The time off is very good. Unlimited sick days. Flexible Summer schedules. Bank holidays. - Lots of opportunity to be creative and start up new initiatives - Unionized position (teamsters) so you have some job security and annual raise (usually about 2%)

    Cons

    - Pay is average or below average compared to some other universities in NYC - There is little room to grow professionally or move up in title - Still a private institution so there are barriers with advancement - Unionized position so there is no negotiating salaries and you must be in the union for 5 years in order to receive a pension. Union starts after 1st year so you need to be at TNS for 6 years to receive pension. - High turnover rate due to caseload sizes and lack of advancement opportuntities
