    I have been working at Boston University full-time

    Pros

    Free tuition, good benefit, positive atmosphere

    Cons

    Low pay, faculty decision making means good intentions but poor managerial skill

    Advice to Management

    Faculty scope should be limited to their ability to manage - i.e. faculty in charge of technology-based programs is not a good idea. Academic expertise does not make someone a good manager.
