    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    For the most part, the people who work there are decent. Management and HR not so much.

    Cons

    Over the years, and especially CURRENTLY (this summer), long-time staff are being shown the door, while hiring new blood at two-thirds the salary. This is not a nice way to treat the people who gave their all to the university over the years. I agree with the comment below -- If you are not a male, this is NOT the place for you -- your days will be numbered as they continue to weed out the staff (older females) who have worked their way up to a decent salary and retirement benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a conscience.

    I have been working at Tufts University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. That's all at this point.

    Cons

    IT used to be a creative, collaborative place to work, with great morale and excellent managemnt. This things are no longer true. Top-down, micromanagement is the way of life now, they only want glorified typists to do what they're told by non-tech-savvy upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Use your staff for what they were trained to do: design, build and maintain robust infrastructure. Include them in technical decision making.
