    Pros

    Nice technology, free tuition with lots of degree choices. That;'s really the only decent reason to work there, is to get a degree of some kind. lots of vacation days

    Cons

    Some individuals have been there longer than most of the buildings. Many of the buildings flood on a regular basis, and guess where the data centers are...That's right, the basements, because they wouldn't think of insulting the faculty by putting them in a moldy basement somewhere

    Advice to Management

    Check your egos at the door, get to know the people who are more then one rung above or below you.

    Pros

    There are a lot of really great people working at Northeastern, and a number of departments are loaded with young professionals that are bringing in new perspectives and innovative approaches to everyday tasks and frequent concerns.

    Cons

    Human Resources does a fairly poor job with nearly everything. Salary negotiations are fairly torturous, the review process tends to diminish individual achievements and therefore a chance for a bonus, and salaries fall at the low ends of the grades. Also, as an internal staff member, you are not allowed to apply for an internal job for at least a year even if you're qualified and the next job in your career path opens up... that is such a ridiculous, archaic policy.

    Advice to Management

    There is almost no appreciation of individual value. Many managers are either too focused on aggregate metrics, individual reviews, or broad sweeping low-amount pay increases to give positive feedback and material appreciation to accomplished staff.
