Current Employee - Administration in Boston, MA
Current Employee - Administration in Boston, MA

I have been working at Boston University full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The benefits are good (paid time off is generous). Depending on the office, the work schedule is manageable and expectations are reasonable. There is opportunity to be part of changing culture if you embrace it and ability to maintain work/life balance.

Cons

slow moving. Unlike other universities, does not seem to be as much of an "academic culture" among administrative employees. The organization is not very nimble or fast moving, so it can be frustrating when trying to implement change.

    Pros

    There are fantastic benefits. The school offers tuition remission which allows you to attent MET college for almost no cost, the health care benefits are very affordable, you are given lots of time off, both vacation time and paid holidays.

    Cons

    The salary is on the low side in comparison with other employers in the area. Working for such a large corporation there are many people and steps to go through before you can make any changes.
