Communications officer / Management & Professional staff member

Communications (Current Employee)
New Haven, CT

I have been working at Yale University full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat environment -- smart people, stimulating, lots of free lectures and talks by anyone you can imagine. Excellent benefits. though some are being phased out or lessened for new employees

ConsIt's very decentralized and can be frustrating. If you are looking for everything to make sense and be orderly, that will depend on how cohesive and well run your own work unit is. Lots of variation in the quality of the management. Very good senior leadership but not focused on understanding and motivating staff (as opposed to faculty). Mobility is difficult once you rise in the ranks.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind a champion for staff at the officer level. John Pepper did this well.

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

Great benefits, not much room for promotion"

I have been working at Yale University full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: Job security (Union) and benefits, paid time off. Cons: Little room for upward mobility as a clerical & technical employee, especially if you work in research.… Advice to Senior Management: Find a way to reward your employees monetarily, even when you work off of grants, otherwise you will find you have high turnover, and are… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
