    Former Employee - Call Center Employee in Boston, MA

    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!

    Pros

    Great people to work with, free tuition for yourself and spouse/children (after 3 years of service). Fun and busy campus with unique student body- decent higher education perks. Amazing 401K matching.

    Cons

    Very corporate for higher education. Recently took away some work/life benefits and the pay is not as great compared to other higher education institutions in the area.
