    Pros

    I think the benefits (retirement plans, health care, etc.) are excellent. I pay only $20/mo for health care for my family and myself. Yale has very good matching for their 403b retirement plan - take advantage of it - it's free money! When I had children I was given what I considered sufficient time off work. I also enjoy my work, it's interesting. And I work with excellent, intelligent people. There's always something happening at Yale (talks, music, theater) and lots of good eating places nearby.

    Cons

    I can't think of any. I really love working at Yale.

    Advice to Management

    Always encourage learning opportunities to train your staff whenever possible.

    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 Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Working here and being a part of this extraordinary university is reason enough. Salaries are decent, but benefits are even better.

    New Haven itself is awful overall.
