    BU grants ample vacation time, including the week between Christmas and New Year's that does not count against your accrued vacation time. Also, BU has a tuition remission program that is far superior to most universities. Dependents receive 50% tuition remission after only 4 months of employment, and that jumps up to 90% after 18 months. Employees get great tuition remission benefits for themselves as well.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Professor in Boston, Massachusetts

    The university provides excellent health benefits, a thoughtful retirement plan, and, for the teaching staff, reasonable flexibility so that you can have the time off that you choose within your position.,

    I didn't work full time there but if you do you get tuition remission.

  • Dec 20, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Director in Boston, Massachusetts

    Great tuition remission that kicks in quickly - partial benefits for self and dependents after only 4 months of full-time employment. Great paid time off (vacation and holidays.)

  • Dec 25, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Associate Director in Boston, Massachusetts

    Generous retirement (recently revamped to help starting employees begin to save early); great health insurance options (which also underwent a review in the last several years and so reflect the University's current priorities; in other words, don't expect massive cuts in health benefits in the near future, I would guess...); a chance to get a degree or advanced degree at VERY little cost. (NOTE - I''m sure faculty get sabbaticals, but not regular staff...)
