Management is extremely helpful and invested in running this new music concert series. Coordination of recital managers, music ensembles, advertising campaigns and performing guests runs smoothly. I learn a lot everyday and I am currently taking a leading position in fundraising and public relations.
Flexible working hours and strong creative initiative
A very rewarding position that really contributed to society
Boston University Community Service Initiative (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – May 19, 2016
This job required the delivery of foods and beverages to soup kitchens and churches in the surrounding Boston area. I was able to meet a lot of generous people from many backgrounds who all wanted to give back. Working with co-workers was rewarding because we were all their for the same thing.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – September 10, 2015
I was responsible for interpreting substantial volumes of original course materials in Japanese and converting all into English for the benefits of hundreds of students. In addition, I developed tests and quizzes in a timely manner and assisted with grading homework and quizzes.
Marsh Chapel Undergraduate Intern (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – April 28, 2016
It is a challenging internship in many ways. Often I lead and work with people who are much older than I am, while I am in the leadership role. I must be able to work with a large variety of people. Because of the necessity for the Chapel to be a safe place, there is a certain level of decorum that must be maintained. It has been a really wonderful learning experience.
Sometimes not enough staff for everything that needs to get done
Stable and relatively relaxing for entry positions
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – February 12, 2016
Working in the Medical campus' research lab was everything you would expect. No thrill and no frill. Great for those who want to have an easy full time job and go for their tuition remission benefit and get a graduate degree out of it part-time. Be prepared to work hard for juggling school and work though, it's do-able but not fun.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – April 8, 2016
I have been quite impressed with my mentor and the members of his laboratory, the research we are conducting, the Renal Section and with Boston University School of Medicine and Boston Medical Center as a whole. I think this is an ideal setting for me to learn, advance my skills and expertise and continue to develop into an independent scientist. I have been in many research settings, but Boston University is overwhelmingly the best I have encountered

Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – February 21, 2016
This is a very interest place to work. Some co-workers were wonderful . Management wasn't big on communication. The most enjoyable part of this job was meeting persons from different places and dealing with all personalities.
administrative staff (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – August 21, 2015
I worked and studied at BU for a very long time. Few of my instructors were tenured, and part time faculty get paid very little. I got no monetary recognition or reward for my degrees though relevant to my job. I know that BU's Personnel office only pays salaries based on a position's demand and how easily it can be filled. Management rarely shows any appreciation for loyalty or anything else. Given the cost of higher ed right now, if you can avail of the tuition benefit, use it and leave ASAP. Otherwise, avoid BU if at all possible. They abuse workers and students while obsessing over bottom lines and perpetual inferiority to Boston's other colleges.
Tuition remission, nice co-workers
Poor management throughout, low pay, no advancement
Residency Education Prog Coord/Asst to Prog Dir (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – September 8, 2012
Extremely busy with endless variety of new things to learn. I have been able to utilize many of my computer software skills and given the opportunty to change and/or enhance many systems. It gives me a great deal of joy to coordinate and bring structure to prgrams that are disorganized and in need of a fresh eye. I support a person whose responsibilities and status have increased enormously since my arrivial and we have enjoyed growing together. The most enjoyable part of the job is watching my boss grow, flourish and be promoted in areas he feels most passionate. The most difficult part of the job is significantly contributing to the growth for which I am extremely proud, but remain stagnant with regard to advancement and compensation.
Researcher in Physics (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – February 6, 2015
The physics dept. at Boston University is a great place to work. The quality of the research is vastly better than what the overall ranking of the university would lead you to think. The work environment is very friendly and collaborative which is rare at any research university. This leads to great work-life balance.
great working environment
salary is barely adequate for the cost of living in boston
Financial Aid Advisor (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – March 23, 2016
The office was large with over 30 employees for Financial aid alone. We were housed in a building with many other offices that serviced well over 30K students. It was a very fast paced office as you had to answer many questions for student and parents a day.
