    I have been working at Yeshiva University (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Hours, Very nice co workers, I enjoy working with them all. If you are of Jewish faith this is the best place to be. From experience you are appreciated for hard work and efforts you do put in. You feel more secure here then most companies I worked for.

    Cons

    Pay is so/so, but this an educational institution so please expect not a high salary, it is not a private sector job ...(really not a true "con"). Since I had started here the University had took some crushing hits financially. Many people were retiring, many departments had let go of some employees, and new employees were not being replaced. Leaving the other employees in those departments to pick up the responsibilities. That is the biggest con, however it is slowly turning around for the better. But there is some ways to still go before the ship rights itself. I know there will be improvement in the coming years

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent, and direct with your employees.


  7. "Nice People with decent perks"

    I worked at Yeshiva University full-time

    Pros

    Lots of time off, good insurance, get off every Friday at 3.30.. I worked in the development dept. - the staff was very friendly .

    Cons

    Location in Washington Heights - The commute was horrible. I think they quit the 401k matching. They are not doing so well financially, so the perks might not be the same.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the 401k matching! i really dont have any other advice for the management. Everyone was great to work with. I was there almost 7 years and enjoyed my time there.

    Pros

    Becoming a part of the campus culture, giving back and having an impact to students throughout the campus. It's the best way to milk the most out of your dorm life experience.

    Long meetings, time consuming, sometimes matters are dealt with unprofessionally

    Advice to Management

    Keep in mind that RA's are students too

    I worked at Yeshiva University full-time

    Pros

    Great people, ability to affect change, and lots of potential.

    Cons

    If a department or office has a poor leader, change can be impossible. Your ability to get things done with other departments depends entirely on the people in that department and it can be difficult if they are difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
