Good benefits but management is terrible, with anecdotal exceptions

Senior Associate Director (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

I worked at Boston University full-time for more than 8 years

ProsMost staff care about what they do. Benefits are great, especially tuition remission and health insurance.

ConsManagers get no training or guidance in management or leadership. Some are great because they happened to get good mentorship, but there is nothing in place to ensure that managers & directors are anything other than good worker bees, so that's what most of them are.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are promoting someone to a supervisory role, make sure they get the training and support to develop appropriate management skills.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
