Current Employee - Lab Supervisor in Boston, MA

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

Pros

The benefits are amazing. BU will help with employee tuition costs from day 1 of working full time and will help with family after some time commitment to BU has been met.

Cons

There is some tension between different groups if employees that doesn't necessariliy play out well. This primarily shows itself between groups having different levels of educations necessary for the position held.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increased transparency would help. Keeping some people in the dark while others are in the know isn't beneficial as a whole.

    I have been working at Boston University full-time

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Lots of opportunities to move around and learn from work in different departments. Overall, pros probably depend a lot on which department you work in.

    Cons

    Huge barriers to change. Senior leadership seems very devoted to image, but policies and initiatives lack depth or impact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix some of the roadblocks. Empower employees (most of whom are very creative) to implement change
