    I have been working at Yeshiva University full-time

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work for Yeshiva University is for the Jewish holidays and to leave work at 2:30 pm on Fridays.

    Cons

    There is no growth potential for minorities, so if you are a minority , and you intend to work her be prepared for this.

    Advice to Management

    Management should strive to be more inclusive with their employees, and not so exclusive. It's easy to get the feeling that the administration only cares about the faculty and the students, and that they really couldn't care less about the secretarial and facilities staff.

    Pros

    Very generous work-life balance; strong starting salaries; supportive community to both employees and staff; worked on a fantastic and dedicated team.

    No pay raises for the years I worked there; poor financial outlook now; poor benefits and retirement matching

    Advice to Management

    Important to keep current with technology, business trends and practices in order to properly prepare students for post-university life. This seemed to be a constant issues that thwarted many goals of the University.
