I have been working at Tufts University full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

-Good benefits including vacation, personal days, etc
-Free Tufts undergrad or grad level courses

Cons

-Salary is not competitive with other similar positions in Boston
-3 month grace period for vacation, personal days, and courses is non-negotiable

Advice to Management

I've been denied tuition remission due to the 3-month probationary period and must now pay $2400 for a course that, had I been hired slightly earlier would be free. At least covering the last 2 months of the course after my probationary period ends would have made sense, but not covering it at all does not.
