I worked at Northeastern University as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

The people are wonderful, the students are motivated and enthusiastic, and the atmosphere on campus is full of energy. I only spent a short time working here, but loved every bit of my experience.

Cons

I honestly didn't experience any in my time there.

    I worked at Northeastern University full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Tuition remission is a big benefit as long as your program of choice is not online. The work environment is very collegial within departments and people are passionate about what they do. Able to check your job at the door- outside of 9-5 work expectations are infrequent. Opportunities for growth are present as long as you are willing to move to other departments.

    Cons

    Pay/time off is a little low compared to other universities in the Boston area. The environment is very decentralized- not a great deal of communication between departments. Lastly, because the university is trying to be more competitive they are shifting to a business model that resembles "for-profit" institutions i.e. high recruitment demands

    Current Employee - Student Services in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Northeastern University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, vacation and sick time are a huge plus. Great for someone looking to earn a Master's degree while working full time.

    Cons

    While the benefits are a pro, the salary is a con. Raises are barely enough to keep up with inflation and bonuses are really not existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide lower level employees with clear advancement paths, challenging stretch assignments and ways to develop professionally
