    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

    I have been working at Babson College full-time (More than 3 years)

    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
