I have been working at Boston University full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

- tuition remission
 - good retirement benefits
 - faculty/staff discount

Cons

- salaries are not up to part with some other area universities
 - too much emphasis on appearances, e.g. lux residence halls, etc.
 - rigid salary grades

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to staff/faculty satisfaction than to appearance to attract more students.

    I have been working at Boston University part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Many opportunities to work with professors and interact with staff members over the course of my job. Down time to study when work load is not significant.

    Cons

    Not that many cons, except the construction in the SMG building has made everything different and more difficult to adjust to. More pros than cons definitely.

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

    Pros

    Facility is excellent, teachers are nice and you can meet people from different countries, very interesting, you should take full advantage of the gym

    Cons

    tuition is really expensive, expecially for some programs, we have no campus````` because schools are in the street, professors are very busy, since most of them are teaching us after work```
