  1.  

    Non-profit university means you can do what's right instead of what's profitable, but very very slowly.

    I have been working at Tufts University full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Generous hours and leave; 35 hour weeks, 4 weeks vacation, unlimited sick time.
    Stable employment.

    Cons

    Pay is not on par with commercial industry. Consensus and group-think drive decision making. Progress on any collaborative task is incredibly slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire middle management that has commercial expertise; not primarily from other universities. Focus on actionable results that benefit the majority over 100% agreement.
