    Pros

    The school is located in boston

    Cons

    the school is located in boston, they have an exremely biased hiring process where unqualified candidates will be chosen over well qualified ones due to merely having studied through BU in some fashion, there are some race quotas that they seek to meet as well

    I have been working at Boston University full-time (more than an 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.
