It Depends on Which Department You Work ForDec 3, 2022 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
There is a certain level of autonomy that I enjoy. I am fully remote. I get to interact with several departments across the university which is fun.
The pay is not up to snuff with the other higher education institutions. This could very well only apply to certain positions, but the requirements for certain roles are also ridiculous and the opposite of equitable. Just compare some similar positions with say, Harvard.

It’s becoming more and more like Amazon (where the CEO came from), with crazy , stressful, workload expectations. Can’t take a vacation without your Key Performance Indicators being impacted (they never shut off even when you’re out of office for weekends or requested time off). Major issues with accountability, and an employee often feels pressured (by KPI or other) to work even when out of office.Continue reading
