UNIX Operator (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – December 17, 2015
Great job for learning and continuing school school. It will help improve your skills in a low stress environment. Other words, more things, I apparently didn't put enough here so I guess I'll just keep writing.
Writer and Editor for Department (Current Employee) – DORCHESTER, MA – August 26, 2015
UMass Boston is an ever changing environment that constantly strives to better itself. Although the university is currently in a transitional phase as it undergoes its 25 Year Master Plan, its administrative team works around the clock to make sure that student experiences are the best they can be.
Fun, fast paced and progressive work environment located next to the beautiful Dorchester Bay
Administrative Intern (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – November 3, 2014
The environment is quiet and somewhat laid back. I learned that working in a college, there are very busy days, especially when students need to see their advisors. A typical day at work consists of copying and transporting papers to different departments of the college, data entry, and filing student folders. The management and co-workers are very nice, but very dedicated to their jobs. They are comfortable for me to interact with. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to put my skills to use and learn new things as I go along to update my skills.
IT support to students and faculty (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – August 3, 2014
I enjoyed this job very much because it was working with computers and that what I love to do. I learned a lot from my employees. The hardest part of the day was when there is downtime but when there wasn't i was always on the go.

Project Management Consultant (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – August 25, 2013
Center for Social Policy (CSP) is doing some great research and initiatives for the community. The center is working with leaders within the community to talk and discuss the tough issues regarding poverty, homeliness, minimum wages, etc.
I truly enjoy working with CSP, they are giving me a different perspective (in the trenches) on social policies.
Committed, caring, and competent colleagues with which to collaborate
Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – February 27, 2013
I learned to teach research methods and statistics to mastery. Adapting my instruction to meet the diverse neeeds of my students, doctoral candidates, was a challege that my dean and program chair helped me meet. Learning to teach to the wide ranging diversity in math and writing skills and backgrounds among my students as opposed to around it was the hardest part of my job at UMass.
committed, caring, and competent faculty with an emphasis on research-based urban school reform.
too many part-time, non-tenured or tenure-track professors de-stabilized faculty support of students (e.g., joint projects, student assistanships, mentoring, co-authorship)
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – May 16, 2012
A good place to work. Like the student atmosphere. All jobs are different here. I am in research so you are afforded a certain amount of leeway as far as schedule goes. Because it is research job security is not guaranteed.
Student Employee (Former Employee) – DORCHESTER, MA – May 14, 2012
At UMB Undergraduate Admissions, students are able to experience what it is like working in a professional environment. The roles students play is just as important as the other employees. We were treated with equal respect and same value. There were days where we could hang out at work and relax but when it was time to work we worked.
