    I worked at Polytechnic Institute of NYU part-time

    Pros

    Friendly bosses, lots of opportunities to work in many different areas. The work is fulfilling if you make it fulfilling - many departments are very open to fresh ideas.

    Cons

    Very low pay (for students) - not nearly commensurate with cost of living in New York City or with the cost of tuition at NYU. Also, HR has been glacially slow - pay checks are often months late and sent the wrong address.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to treat students more seriously. The general outlook among management seems to be that students' parents pay for everything and students just work for extra spending money so don't take their jobs very seriously (and therefore do not deserve to be compensated very well).

    Pros

    NYU is one of the best places to work from the work culture to the way you learn about your self

    Cons

    There is no con to working for NYU who wouldn't love to work for a prestigious university
