    I have been working at Northwestern University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great community feel, engaged leadership, supportive of professional and personal development, amazing benefits. NU is committed to excellence and it shows!

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that there is no easy way to commute to Evanston. But that is not an NU problem.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Keep employees engagement and satisfaction at the top of your minds and NU will continue to be an amazing place to work!

    I worked at Northwestern University full-time

    Pros

    I worked with a strong and kind team that made me better, and appreciated the flexibility afforded to me regarding the direction of my individual work.

    Cons

    The success of this position seemed largely dependent on the support of those closest to me/the immediate department. As with many universities, my position did not have much exposure into other areas of the larger institution. This may no longer be the case. These were also not major issues for me - my work was interesting, and my group was excellent.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many types of work for advice to fit all experiences. It may be helpful to share how learned transferable skills can build professional opportunity for movement across colleges w/in NU.. if not already happening.
