    Wonderful Place to Work and Live

    New Haven, CT

    ProsGreat Community, Wonderful Education- Culturally Enriching. School of Management has a new facility, as does forestry. The new class of undergrads is very excited and friendly, so many vibrant employees and students- it's hard to go wrong attending or working at Yale.

    ConsYale is a wonderful place museums, art science. This is a cultural repository for the last 800,000 years of humanities existence. It's a little overwhelming with so many opportunities it's impossible to take advantage of them all.

    Excellent place for student workers

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New Haven, CT

    ProsGreat pay and interesting work. The university makes it easy to find jobs that are available to the community and facilitates the application process.

    ConsNone that I can think of. Jobs at the university are near where students live and are high paying (or at least enough so given the student contribution) compared to their equivalents outside the university.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
