I have been working at Northeastern University full-time for more than a year

Pros

The benefits are very good and the free tuition great! There are a lot of managers who love to see their employees grow as people and in their careers.

Cons

Working with students can sometimes be a thankless job and you must be very self-motivated and maintain a good attitude. They can and will push your patience to the limit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take suggestions seriously from employees who are doing the work and implement those suggestions. They are involved hands-on in a lot of processes and often they know best what needs to be changed.

    I have been working at Northeastern University for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pays ok for a graduate student. Quite bureaucratic (the NU shuffle)

    Cons

    Not a lot of courses when you do engineering, although apparently its department is only 2nd in size and total funding to MIT.

    I worked at Northeastern University full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great, personable, community-based environment with excellent benefits. Everyone really believes in the place and you can have some incredible colleagues who are insanely talented and become lifelong friends. Depending on where you are, you can handle a variety of really cool projects, and advancement is possible, as upper level folks do acknowledge and appreciate your efforts.

    Cons

    Depending on your department, you can work crazy hours to meet just-sprung deadlines that directly conflict with your existing workload. Employees are very devoted and maintain good spirits, but it can be exhausting and sometimes demoralizing. Pay is decent, but not great unless you're on a high supervisory level.
