Great place to work for. Except the facilities department.
Facilities department. (Former Employee) –  Wellesley, MAApril 27, 2017
Babson college is a great place to work for. Except the facilities department. If you decide to work for the housekeeping department. I promise you will be over load with impossible tasks. Tons of harassment from the overnight supervisor " S/S" .this department has the biggest turnover because of him. When you file or complaint to the Human Resources department. They just fired or replace you with another victim. Please beware...
Pros
Great benefits. 401b.
Cons
No opportunitys for advancement.

Great place to work other than facilities department.
Overnight facilities department. (Former Employee) –  Wellesley, MAJanuary 18, 2017
Amazing place to work for other than the facilities department. You do not want to work this uncivilized department. If you do expect lots of harassment,pressure at all times. There's an individual that's been working there for a very long time. His in charge of the overnight shift. He's responsible for the high turnover the facilities department .if you report anything to the hr department they only action they take .is to sweep everything under the rug.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Very short breaks

Slow paced political quagmire
Director of IT Operations and Security (Current Employee) –  Wellesley, MAOctober 4, 2016
Babson is a throwback to the way higher ed used to operate. No worries about strategy or costs or direction. Figurehead president massive internal chaos and fiefdoms. Slow pace of change with many many disasters. Too many lifers for hresh ideas and unwillingness to look out side of higher ed for successful models of business

Quiet workplace that is good for students.
Student Assistant Accountant (Former Employee) –  Babson Park, MAAugust 13, 2013
This office is a good employer for any student attending the school. As long as you put in the time and get the work done, it pays better than most of the other student positions available on campus. However, this is not a work-study position.

Friendly people and no unreasonable expectations.
