Great company to work for

Postdoctoral Associate (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

ProsGreat benefits. The health plan is reasonable and the dental plan is great coverage for much less than my wife's plan. The health plan includes a fitness bonus to offset the cost of gym membership.

ConsAlthough employees get a discounted membership at the Fitness and Recreation Center, membership costs more as an employee than as an alumni, and if you are an employee you can't benefit from the alumni discount.

    I worked at Boston University full-time for less than a year


    Pros: No pros about the department. Outside of the department, this is a good business school that will see great growth… Cons: Worst environment I have ever worked in.
