    I worked at Yale University full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Excellent staff colleagues: caring and long experience.

    Cons

    Leadership doesn't really have any idea of either leading or managing. There is some idea of adopting what's effective from the corporate world, but that is never understood or executed well.

    There is NO work-life balance. Everyone takes work home all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Don't pretend you're something you're not.
