Pros

The people and the benefits are the two best reasons to work at Babson. Everyone (faculty, staff, and students) is great to work with. I've been employed at Babson College for over 10 years, in multiple departments / divisions and positions. At each stop, I have felt as if I was part of a family. The atmosphere is truly welcoming and supportive and there is ample opportunity for self-starters to create value and move forward with projects / initiatives that benefit the College.

Cons

One of the downsides of working at any College is the salary. In general, College's are unable to match the upper half of the salaries in a given field - and possibly less in technology fields.

Advice to Management

Narrow the strategic focus of the College an better align staff to provide a truly world class experience for the students.

    Pros

    The benefits are really genrous they give you a lot of time off right from the start. There are numerous events on campus year round and they encorouge the staff to participate. Working in an academic environment open a lot of opportunities for exposure to people of different cultures and beliefs. My time there was an eye opening experience in which I learned a lot

    Cons

    Scheduling, promotional opportunities and communication to support staff is limited. Feedback can be very limited and I found that there was little recognition or opportunity outside of my department for feedback or recognition. Hour can be long and demanding while some of the staff is given flex schedules during the summer months support staff is generally excluded from this benefit

    Advice to Management

    Remember the educational and management staff are not the only employees of Babson College
