    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New Haven, CT

    I worked at Yale University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are many positives: there is a lot of opportunity for growth, a real collaborative culture, decent pay, and all of the perks of being part of a university community

    Cons

    None that I can think of. If you're working on the support side of things, staff/students can be a little over-the-top, though this is to be expected wherever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    Graduate Student

    I worked at Yale University

    Pros

    Top-notch accessible faculty, excellent research environment. A very positive experience overall in pursuing my PhD. Highly recommended.

    Cons

    New Haven location is all right, but occasionally a little sketchy at night. Sometimes funding is a little hard to come by; everyone seems to spend too much time obtaining grants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tenure system sometimes leads to pettiness and bad behavior from lower-quality professors.
