Excellent benefits but some departments aren't so great
Senior Administrator (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – November 29, 2016
I have found that my experience at Yale is vastly different to other employees outside of my specific department. Almost everyone else I meet absolutely LOVES working here. Unfortunately, I am not one of those people. There is no room for advancement in my department. Management is awful...lots of blame placing and very little accountability for actions. Tons of micro-management leading to mistrust and miserably low morale. Too much bureaucracy in all of our processes. Way too many steps creating way too much room for error. My direct co-workers are fantastic but there are other very cliquey and toxic circles in the entire department. The hardest part of my job is getting direct and accurate answers to my questions. My training was very convoluted and ever-changing. The most enjoyable part of my job is time off and weekends.
Reputation, Excellent Benefits
Mind numbingly unrewarding work, constantly having to do the job of others due to their inadequacy

Being at Yale has afforded me many opportunities to meet and work with some of the best minds, and it is truly inspiring. Organizationally, work is flexible and you are encouraged to have a healthy work/life balance. Health benefits are amazing.
Health benefits, proximity to great restaurants, cool events
Love what I do and like all my coworkers especially my collaborating MD
Nurse Practitioner (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – May 22, 2016
I work in a busy outpatient oncology clinic - we see mostly GI cancers, the majority have colorectal, pancreatic and esophageal cancer. Most are getting treatment, whether adjuvant or palliative. We see urgent visits in addition to treatment and followup visits. The days are never boring, and I learn something new every day. We also participate in clinical trials. The hardest part of the job is watching those with metastatic disease decline. The most enjoyable part of the job is telling a patient that their imaging was good and we will see them in 3, 6 or 12 months!
The only negative about my current position is the management, which is very topheavy (seems like there are 2 managers for every worker!) and their lack of interest in listening to those who work in the trenches every day.

Yale University is an excellent institution to work for with a comprehensive benefits package. The project supervisor has excellent management skills. Everyone on the team at juvenile works well together.
Travelling to detention sites as far as Waterbury and Hartford
Account Assistant 2 (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – July 15, 2016
Your held back if your a worker and others are promoted while bullying the workers. Management/Human Resources turns the other way instead of using corrective action. Instead of bringing people together they create a divide amongst other employees. This is in one department.
Portfolio Manager (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – June 3, 2016
Poor work life balance. Little input into your career path. For the most there are no career paths. If you are good at your job, they will try to keep you there avoiding any potential growth or promotions for you.
It's Yale and you can experience an everything an organization of that stature has to offer.
Lots of silos, very cut throat as there have been several layoffs recently.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – October 14, 2016
I worked in a busy fast paced environment, answering phones and involved with handling multiple schedules for our Doctors and appointments for our patients. I learned to be more organized and proficient in various tasks. My co-workers were professional team players who assisted me when needed. The hardest part of my job was not being able to squeeze patients into an already full clinic. My Doctors demonstrated quality time with their patients and did not want to overbook them in order to give them the time and attention they needed. The most enjoyable part of my job was feeling as if I made a difference in the patient's care and would often get rewarded by their appreciative, grateful spirit!

Yale offers great benefits and opportunities for learning and advancement, but as with any large entity, each school/department/section is has its own culture. The medical school is very fast paced while central campus closely follows the academic year cycle. My experience in both of those areas was rewarding and I received much support from my supervisors, faculty and peers. It's really about finding the right fit for you!
Great benefits and pay; opportunities for learning and advancement
There are many areas/schools/departments within the university...many are great, others are toxic.
Chef (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – March 16, 2016
As we called them in the kitchen 'family' (the kitchen help) I miss so very much. Each day we prepared different food items. A six month cycle of menus. We cooked for and treated the students as our own children.
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – November 4, 2016
Working for Yale was truly an eye opener to what I wanted to do with my work experience. I was able to persom many duties as requested by professors, doctors and nurses. I worked with patients and their families in different clinics. Anyone who has the chance to work for this university will benefit in every area
