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

    Pros

    Grad student stipend here is higher than most other places in the country and includes a very generous health insurance package that covers your entire family at no extra cost.

    Cons

    The local area leaves something to be desired, but the resources of the university more than make up for the cons of the area.

    I have been working at Yale University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Yale offers great salaries and benefits, intelligent colleagues and faculty, and upward mobility. My department also encourages continued learning and access to some of the most interesting speakers and events that come to campus.

    Cons

    Yale is hindered by it slow-moving, conservative culture. Though faculty are doing amazing work here, the institution as a whole does not foster the innovative, entrepreneurial culture that you could find elsewhere (Stanford, MIT, etc.).

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to become comfortable embracing an entrepreneurial culture across the institution. This will help faculty push the boundaries of innovation in their respective fields.
