    I worked at Babson College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My division was a very positive, developmental place to work. Very transparent and honest management.

    Cons

    Not all divisions operated with such transparency. HR was a challenge, very disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Help HR take ownership of mistakes, don’t just dump it on your employees. Also recommend more social justice training for all students, faculty, and staff.

    I have been working at Babson College full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with- very collaborative across all departments
    Very generous benefits package, including summer flex hours in some cases and excellent employer matching program
    Care a lot about their employees

    Cons

    Salaries tend to be on the lower side
    Smaller endowment which my guess is can have an impact on how well people are paid

    Pros

    Working at Babson is wonderful! Professional development opportunities, respectful workplace, and a supportive community make it a great place to come to every day.

    Cons

    Each department in the college works in silos - it sometimes is unclear what is going on on other teams or in the departments. Some projects could be more successful if certain groups would coordinate more effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps try to facilitate more inter-departmental collaboration
