I worked at Yale University full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good work life balance, excellent overall benefits package (health care coverage, tuition reimbursement, paid time off, etc.). The work/office culture largely depends on the specific department you work in.

Cons

Due to tradition and especially the sheer size of the university, the wheels of change (i.e. positive improvements) at Yale can move very slowly. This can be quite frustrating at times.

Advice to Management

Be more open to flexible work schedules, and especially work from home options.

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

    Pros

    The benefits were great, matching funds for retirement fund, free entry into all Yale buildings, museums, libraries etc.
    It was very intellectually stimulating and challenging

    Cons

    The pay was terrible, as a woman I was treated differently than men and my salary showed it. You must pay for parking at approx $80/mo.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees of either gender equally. Pay maternity for all women.
