I have been working at Boston University full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

- tuition remission
 - good retirement benefits
 - faculty/staff discount

Cons

- salaries are not up to part with some other area universities
 - too much emphasis on appearances, e.g. lux residence halls, etc.
 - rigid salary grades

Advice to Management

Pay more attention to staff/faculty satisfaction than to appearance to attract more students.

    I worked at Boston University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Was able to practice typing skills and paying attention to detail. Could listen to music. Organizing materials enabled you to see how creative you can get with the files. Everyone was working, no one was working more than another.

    Cons

    Minimal talking, very quiet work environment. Computers were old. Do not expect to make friends within the office since there is limited communication.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade the computers for all your departments.

    tuition is really expensive, expecially for some programs, we have no campus````` because schools are in the street, professors are very busy, since most of them are teaching us after work```
