    You have the opportunity to work with experienced and collaborative colleagues, meet employers across a breadth of industries and interface with intelligent, hard working students.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Yale School of Management full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Bright engaged faculty, fairly decent students. A genuine desire to change how business schools operate with a very unique curriculum.

    Cons

    Abysmal senior management. Politics and more politics with almost no desire to enhance education. Completely self serving with people who are only out for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    The alumni and students should revolt, get rid of the Dean and his direct reports and fight for change. It's a great school that is plagued by bitterness and a terrible administration.

    Pros

    Great workplace atmosphere. Always working with interesting and engaging people. Not routine. Challenging at times, but that's a good thing. Managers are very flexible when it comes to time off for personal needs.

    Cons

    The work load et's a little slow/boring in the summer. Though this does balance out some of the more hectic times.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more work life and//or continuing education courses. These are valuable in terms of challenging and encouraging professional growth for employees.
