I worked at Babson College

Pros

Very fun environment with exposure to very smart people and the leaders of tomorrow. Many people I still keep in contact with.

Cons

Not many cons except for a terrible set of people in middle management who are politically driven and make the experience a bit nightmarish at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The middle management is terrible, there are a lot of politics involved. One case involved the head of a department abusing her position to email students to vote for a "person of the year" survey as if voting for her was compulsory. She ended up winning.

    Pros

    The benefits of tremendous; 403B contribution match x4! 3 weeks vacation at hire; 5 weeks after 5th anniversary.

    Cons

    Very fluid environment which leads to a lot of tail chasing. Babson has never met an opportunity it didn't like which results in a lot of rush work for administration. Decisions are often made in a vacuum and not effectively communicated downstream. Current management model creates a culture of fear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Set some policies that can be standardized across all departments. 2) Forecast need better and more often. 3) Treat administration with the same respect that the faculty receives.

    Changing course way too often, with little advance notice
