    Pros

    Yale has excellent environment for research. Research teams are very good. International standard of work and it is widely collaborated with other universities and institues around the world!

    Cons

    New Haven is not a big city and the security condition needs to improve. The transportation is not convenient as the metropolitans. Especially when you travel for meeting and conference to some states or countries, which are far away.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Yale University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and reasonable work hours can make Yale a good place for employees with children.

    Cons

    Yale is a difficult place for younger employees to excel and advance, since pay and promotions are tied more strongly to years of service than to performance. Pay overall lags behind private-sector jobs, and the university often takes a very long time to implement strategy changes.
