    I have been working at Maharishi University of Management

    Pros

    I should practice Meditation twice a day. I hesitate for few days but after a while I get used to it, and actually it helped.
    I was stress free, calm.

    Cons

    Location is kind of not lively.

    I worked at Maharishi University of Management full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Here everybody is NICE with plenty of time to sit in the Domes to meditate.

    Cons

    Unless you are a Governor i.e. take courses costing thousands of dollars to become a TM teacher, do not even think of advancing in your professional career or earning a decent living. I never got my 403(b) though promised which unfortunately I came to know after I left the organization after almost 6 yrs of being a faculty. There is no policy in place for retirement, advancement in career. Departmental promotions seems to be arbitrary or dependent on who knows who. I have had the misfortune of my researches being stolen and published by another faculty who was incidentally rewarded though it was brought to the notice of the top management and the department.Almost 50% of the revenue is sent to India to support " Pandit" groups.The Board members are permanent - selected either by paying a ransom or by dint of sheer luck of being chosen by Maharishi himself before he passed away.The faculty are expected to donate large sums of money (even though they are paid a pittance and hardly any benefits) to uphold the values of TM and support the Maharishi movement which apparently is controlled by Maharishi's nephews. Very large sums of money are siphoned off to India on a regular basis for various projects which never see the light of day. the Faculty and students are kept under strict vigilance and anyone who raises a voice of dissent is quietly manipulated out of the university or program. The university pays thousands of dollars to counter negative comments about the top management which they could easily use to better the life of the faculty which they promise but never follow through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its time that the Faculty got ACTUAL MONEY and BENEFITS that they deserve as per US Law. Follow through with your promises with honesty and integrity.

    Pros

    Great people, some of the most caring and flexible people to work for.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, poor management.
    Some departments are more worried about you meditating than your work performance.
    It is a Not for Profit worried more about how much money they are bringing in rather than the services that they are providing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating competent staff and faculty with a little respect.
