No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Job security (Union) and benefits, paid time off.

Cons

Little room for upward mobility as a clerical & technical employee, especially if you work in research. Here often a good worker is only rewarded with more work, not a higher paycheck...due to "budgetary restraints"

Advice to Management

Find a way to reward your employees monetarily, even when you work off of grants, otherwise you will find you have high turnover, and are only left with the workers who are looking to scrape by, or who's hands are tied b/c they are so far into their schooling it's too late to switch to the corporate world...
