Project Manager

Academics

January 1970

This is a liberal environment that is diverse and open to womens' issues. That said, it is not very organizationally mature so the execution of these policies will vary from department to department.

    Depends on what level you're at; I'm an associate director so I have much more flexibility than an administrative assistant does.

Don't be humble about your abilities. Be confident about what you have to offer and take available opportunities to make your strengths known. Network and learn to navigate the politics of the organization.

    Some units are very flexible, offering flex-time and work-from-home arrangements; however, others do not offer any such arrangements.

    Trust employees to be competent in their roles, rather than make them constantly have to prove themselves.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Benefits are great, but the environment is pretty political, and those who posture well are more likely to get transfers and promotions.

Gender equality is respected though there are other institutional issues that could be improved from an efficiency and communications standpoint

Student Life And Housing

January 1970

NYU was a wonderful place to work for the most part, but some departments are more political than other. Residential life and housing had a disparity related to racial and gender diversity and promotions. This was one of the reasons I left.

It's a big enough company that it depends heavily on where you work. I have experienced both good and bad work environments in just three years here.

    Maybe. Great space if you are trying to earn a higher education degree or if you have college bound kids in the next 2-3 years. Such a big organization can have lots of red tape, management shifts, and politics.

Graduate Assistant

I don't have enough details about NYU as an employer. I know there are a lot of women working there as Admin, clerks, and faculty, so I guess it must be ok.

System Administrator

ITS

January 1970

Very political, but good work-life balance. Money is not great but educational opportunities are very good. Coworkers are generally very supportive and friendly. Senior management builds a wall between itself and lower levels that can impede growth. The organization does not appear to promote from within as much as it prefers to hire senior staff from outside. Sexism is subtle.
