"Fine"

Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Boston, MA

I have been working at Boston University part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Salary was livable in Boston. Healthcare was provided with the BU clinic as the "primary care".
This was part of a PhD program, so the "work" was part of my own research. Very little pressure, as long as I was making good progress.

Cons

Bureaucracy was more inefficient than other universities I've been a member of, but it works.

    I have been working at Boston University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    BU has an amazing benefits package including 4 weeks paid vaca with a 5th for intersession along with almost every holiday paid. Tuition remission is a phenominal perk and has ad's up to $8K to your total benefits package. Sick days accrue very quickly at over 1.5 a month and the overal ambiance of the CRC campus is especially pleseant.

    Managment is usually very attentive and is willing to throw resources at a problem.

    Cons

    Instituional change comes slow and is very political.
