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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Small 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.

    I have been working at Tufts University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some professors are great; students are cool people; lots of flexibility in your hours. In one lab in particular, I worked with a bunch of undergraduates and grad students, and we all got along very well.

    Cons

    Some professors are hard to reach or non-responsive, but that

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dear Psych department: please pay your RAs! Even during the school year! Ha ha. But all in all, I'm very happy with my research assistant experience at Tufts--I'm even presenting a poster on my summer work this October!
