    I have been working at Northeastern University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Campus location and neighborhood are fairly nice. I have meet great people that work for or with the university at almost all levels, and many of these people have been around the school for quite a while in various capacities. (these people are more often than not leaving the school rapidly) Meager financial compensation across the board (good benefits - bad money)

    Cons

    Since the new senior leadership have been running the show at the school senior staff all across the university is turning over at an incredible rate. In the past 8-10 years what was an excellent place of learning with a blue-collar attitude is now a high-strung work environment with an even tighter budget and a terrible faux nobility attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to being a pleasant place for people to work.

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

    Pros

    I work in a research group with great people. I have as much freedom and as much support as I like. The salary is competitive and I was able to get additional funding for moving abroad to do research. I have not spent much time in Boston, but that is also a clear plus.

    Cons

    I cannot really think of any cons. I work with great people, I have a lot of freedom, I have support, and the pay is competitive; what can I say? There is a bit of bureaucracy, but not any more than the same job at other places.

    Advice to Management

    Great job.
