Aaron, Operations Administrator, New York City

"Thanks to NYU’s many career advancement opportunities, I was promoted from Administrative Aide to a management position. I turned to NYU's Group Legal Plan when negotiating my lease with my landlord, and take free professional development courses online through lynda.com and NYUiLearn. I enjoy NYU’s employee discounts and especially the free admission to New York City museums – including my favorite, The Rubin Museum of Art."

Ambrose, Assistant Director of Advising, New York City

"By participating in Weight Watchers at Work, I lost over 30 pounds and won NYU’s Lose Smart Weight Loss Challenge! I joined Team NYU at the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge and take advantage of all the LiveSmart wellness clinics, including the free cholesterol and glucose screening. My family and I have benefited from the one-on-one meetings with TIAA consultants for our financial and retirement planning."


Henry, IT Project Director, New York City

"After my long career in corporate America, I find a great benefit of working at NYU to be Winter Recess around the holidays. My co-workers span multiple generations, ethnicities, and backgrounds, with experience across different industries. I take advantage of NYU Toastmasters, the pre-tax commuter benefit, and the retirement plan – the employer match to my own contributions is generous."

Kiley, Senior Associate, Chancellors' Office, Shanghai

"As a new mom to a happy and healthy daughter, I had a wonderful experience with NYU’s health insurance throughout my pregnancy and following her birth. The plan’s direct billing with the hospital made life much easier, and my daughter receives free vaccinations for her first year."


Mirta, Senior Administrative Manager, New York City

"When my children needed orthodontic work, their care was largely covered under NYU’s Dental Plan. I've had great access to free or discounted New York City cultural experiences offered by NYU Ticket Central and especially liked some of the mindfulness programs by the Office of Global Spiritual Life. I've taken advantage of a plethora of opportunities for training, certifications, and professional development. I earned a bachelors degree and am currently pursuing a graduate degree."

Neptali, Retiree, former HR Director, New York City

"After 43 years with NYU, my wife and I now travel, write, garden, and enjoy the benefits of the TIAA retirement plan I contributed to while working. At NYU, I completed an associates, bachelors, and masters; my daughter earned her undergraduate degree; and my son completed two years of college before joining the Navy."
