    Former Employee - Clinical Associate Professor in Boston, MA

    I worked at Northeastern University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A university on the rise. It has recently been ranked as one of the top fifty universities in the country.

    Cons

    The older faculty are still adjusting to contemporary teaching methods and to the demands of today's students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give faculty members ample credit for professional development. For example, course release time to learn how to use teaching technology effectively. Provide sabbaticals to selected faculty members (at least one in each academic department) to learn how to apply online teaching to their areas of teaching.

    It's OK

    Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Boston, MA
    Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Northeastern University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Boston is a beautiful city and NEU is in a great location (very close to downtown) making it easy to access with public transportation.

    Cons

    It is really costly to live and winters are so cold and long. NEU has recently become very popular for undergrad education due to its coop program which resulted in too many students for a small area.
    Your happiness from graduate research assistantship is mostly dependent on your adviser and it is not a rare event to come across with a bad one.

    I worked at Northeastern University

    Pros

    Very supportive work environment, energetic supervisor. They set goals for us and were flexible with scheduling and taking days off. There were a lot of student employees in the alumni call center.

    Cons

    The job itself was at the call center which wasn't the most exciting. It was also located in the basement of a building which was a bit depressing (no windows). I imagine other work areas are different though!
