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

    Pros

    Very flexible work schedule - most staff rarely works 9 to 5
    Flexible time off, all holidays off, intersession off (and paid)
    Convenient location

    Cons

    Some of the lowest staff compensation among private universities in Boston
    Difficulty moving upward without connections
    Limited growth within a position
    Most of the other staff is adverse to change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out some of the intense bureaucracy. It is cumbersome to deal with when trying to complete certain tasks. Dealing with Accounts Payable is always frustrating.

    I worked at Boston University full-time

    Pros

    Overall, the University is a great place to work. Nice people, great benefits, down to earth, etc.

    Cons

    Do not enter a job with the Executive Leadership Center at SMG The department is run incredibly poorly and every staff member there is treated like dirt due to the terrible, terrible leadership. Everyone at the School, and a large part of the University, know about the issues this department faces but no one will do anything about it. In addition to many other factors, there is constant turnover in the department but apparently that is not enough of a sign that something must be done with the leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place even the least bit of value on employee happiness.
