Vice President-ALPFA Suffolk Chapter (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – January 9, 2017
For students full of energy to learn and explore, this place is the best option. I am working here from past 6 months and never experienced anything bad here. From top to bottom, this place is full of opportunities and good support.
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – January 2, 2017
As a new person to the American work culture, I was supposed to learn a lot of new things. And I trained myself to such scenarios and also worked along with the college management, board of members, the graduation admission team and also with the people working in library.

Associate Director, Center for Executive Education (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – October 17, 2016
Suffolk has gone through many changes over the years and has received some bad press; however, overall, it is still an acceptable place to work. The Suffolk community has rallied together and I think management is finally recognizing its employees on a more personal level more now than in the past few years.
Office Coordinator (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – August 8, 2016
No raises in years, no opportunities for advancement, and low pay. Employees work hard because of their love for their students. Faculty and staff go above and beyond their job titles/descriptions to help each and every student, with no incentives from administration. Most employees at Suffolk are either leaving for better jobs at other IHEs or looking for better jobs.
Excellent, but expensive, health insurance. High employer contribution to 403(b).
Low morale, no advancement, no raises in years, top-heavy administration
Professor/ Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – May 16, 2016
As a fellowship student, you will work with a professor. Tasks could include grading, design homework, and research. Time is very flexible as long as you finish assigned tasks.However, your professor/supervise might not keep track of the time you work and assign you overload tasks. It's not a big deal, you just need to talk to them.
Coordinator- SBS Dean's office (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – April 28, 2016
Growing within the university is down to who you know, and the connections you develop. There is little room to move, no raises in over 4 years, a culture, of low morale. Currently, work for a great department, but nowhere to move.
Work Like Balance, tuition benefits.
No cost of living increases, or raises. No Job security.

Administrative Associate (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – January 12, 2016
Earned my MBA while working full time in the Deans office.. Was able to apply skills I learned thru MBA courses in the Deans Office, like revamping the database for professors. Great job and was very sad to leave after earning my MBA.
Mentoring incoming freshman help me grow as a person
Peer Mentor (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – December 7, 2015
Being nervous and not knowing what to expect as an incoming freshman was something every college student has to deal with. As a peer mentor i was able to make that process easier for not only incoming freshman, but their parents as well. Who were as expected, concerned about their children and how the transition to Suffolk University will be
