    I have been working at Tufts University full-time

    Pros

    - smart, motivated students
    - nice campus
    - mission to provide excellent education and conduct high-level research

    Cons

    - too many administrative forms to sign for students and professors
    - IT systems are improving, but still need more
    - benefits (health, dental, etc.) should be re-negotiated; they are still expensive for employees and don't provide enough out-of-network coverage

    Advice to Management

    - streamline and focus on teaching and research; everything else (meetings, ad hoc initiatives) should be minimized

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    (Student at Tufts, so am probably biased)
    -beautiful campus
    -intelligent, modest, fun people
    -supervisors always looking to help you develop essential skills (I got to learn how to use Flash Player, Dreamweaver, Filemaker...etc. the whole shebang)

    Cons

    None that come to mind immediately; honestly, my supervisor and the people I worked with in the office were witty and engaging. Never had a bad time in the office.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you're doing!
