    I have been working at Yale University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work if you are looking for flexibility and a laid back atmosphere. Now, it's not so laid back that it's like being on vacation, there is work to be done and there are deadlines. However, it's not so corporate as other places. If you need to work from home, come in late, or leave early managers are generally better about it then other places. The healthcare is inexpensive and the vacation time/holidays are pretty good.

    Cons

    The benefits are not as good as they used to be, sometimes certain departments are hard to work with because they have the "old-style" of doing things. You will be paid less then other places, but will have more time for life and family.

    Pros

    The school is amazing with a beautiful campus. The size of the undergrad enrollment is small, so it offers a smaller class size that allows for better interactions among students and faculties.

    Cons

    The hours for the gym and the dinning hall are somewhat less compare to other universities, where the gyms can sometime open for 24 hours. At Yale, the gym close really early during weekdays and open couple hours during the weekend. The dinning hall closes around 7PM each day. So it is not convenient.

    Advice to Management

    To be honest, it is a well-established university and I do not think much can be done in a short period of time.

    I have been working at Yale University part-time

    Pros

    Paid lunches and bus rides to a nearby lake, engaging sports and activities with campers, easy-going camp director who has minimal complaints of employees.

    Cons

    Campers are frequently difficult to work with. They often have lacks of respect for counselors and are hard to control.

    Advice to Management

    The camp is run quite well and most campers as well as counselors are happy. Maybe if we went to the fields a little bit less the camp would be better, but that is being nit-picky.

    I have been working at Yale University part-time

    Pros

    great think tank in ISS to be a part of great scholars good benefits good pay set my own hours for most part

    Cons

    inconsistency of work hours sometimes profs not clear ahout assignent they want achieved timelines not always respected not cover commute costs

    Advice to Management

    I think that the management could operationalize a bit better; of course it isn't a for profit business and run by scholars so not what they are optimizing for, but still could


  9. Student Assistant

    Pros

    Excellent pay, generally caring people. Great pay for a student job that requires no experience, and just generally an excellent point on a resume.

    Cons

    Some individuals are very... quirky, and can be very hard to get along with. As a student, there isn't a way to get past this.
