    I have been working at Drexel University full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits package, coworkers, an opportunity to get education at much reduced rate (technically free but you pay only taxes of the actual tuition). The only thing to mention, not all the majors qualify for your free education.

    Cons

    Lower salary, longer hours, smaller budgets meaning fewer opportunities for international trips for conferences or professional development programs. Overall, there are fewer cons than pros, so Drexel is a good place to work. So, consider....

    Interview Details

    Interview process consists of 3 stages: 1 phone, 2 face-to-face. Phone screening was quite easy and a lady was very friendly and easy-going. I was notified the following week that I was selected to proceed with one-on-one interview with the Assistant Director for Finance and Administration. The final interview was with the head of the department I was being interviewed for. Hiring process did not take too long. I evaluate my overall experience through hiring and interview process quite highly.
