    I have been working at University of Rochester full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility in work hours, some remove for advancement

    Cons

    Toxic environment, no communication, rumors are always floating around about management, HR follows policy only when they're told to otherwise policy does not matter if your boss is the right person. the entire Alumni Relations & Advancement department is a joke. Do not work here.

    I worked at University of Rochester (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The coworkers were nice but very unhappy too.

    Cons

    the position was not explained in interview properly by a new employee/my soon to be boss. It was a call center but they disguise it to be something else. A big revolving door! Beware!

    Advice to Management

    I tried to go there(management) but to no avail, that department was known to be poor but no one changes it.
