Eight years at Tufts in a managerial role

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Medford, MA

I have been working at Tufts University full-time for more than 8 years

ProsSmall enough to have a community feel; beautiful slightly suburban campus; good benefits; great students

ConsSmall size means limited opportunities for advancement in specific roles (it is the nature of higher ed that people stay in management roles for a long time) so with a smaller school, it is natural that there would be fewer openings. It is not Tufts' fault, it is just the nature of the beast. Good people have left, not because they didn't like Tufts, but pursued more senior roles at larger universities in the area.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
