I have been working at Boston University full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Very flexible work schedule - most staff rarely works 9 to 5
Flexible time off, all holidays off, intersession off (and paid)
Convenient location

Cons

Some of the lowest staff compensation among private universities in Boston
Difficulty moving upward without connections
Limited growth within a position
Most of the other staff is adverse to change

Advice to Management

Cut out some of the intense bureaucracy. It is cumbersome to deal with when trying to complete certain tasks. Dealing with Accounts Payable is always frustrating.
