Union only supports negative behavior from union members. Union does not work with the University management to promote unity. Union members believe the University is there for them first and the students second.
Benefits, Job Security
Union, Senior Management not in-touch with mid level managers, operations managers are not supported from all areas
I loved it here. The clients that you work with makes it difficult at times. Management/ Supervisors was fair. Meeting and working with some of the students and learning somethings about them and their struggles was enjoyable.

Not a corporate environment, less progressive, slow and steady. Takes time for one to adjust to decision by committee and lack of autonomy. Can be challenge at first. Mission to provide a world class education and environment for students and faculty to thrive is well understood.
Princeton University is a wonderful and exciting place to work
Web Services Manager, Woodrow Wilson School (Former Employee) – Princeton, NJ – June 19, 2018
Working in an academic environment is a wonderful opportunity. The resources available and energy level from the students and professors is extremely powerful. I was able to grow professionally and acquire as many skills as I could possible absorb during the time that I worked there. I feel privileged to have had that opportunity and to have known the people that I worked with.
Amazing working environment and abundance of resources available
They did not have a clue how to do project scheduling or cost control. I would not recommend if you are in the construction management industry and have worked in large construction companies to work at this University.

Designer (Current Employee) – Princeton, NJ – April 13, 2018
Princeton is an amazing place to learn and work. There are so many opportunities to advance your learning and knowledge outside of your normal role that you are hired for. People are proud to work here and it shows in your everyday interactions with staff.
Great benefits and more casual culture than corporate world
Raises are somewhat less than inflation sometimes.
The most enjoyable part of the job is that the campus is beautiful and historical. It is located in an area with plenty of choices for lunch. In addition, if you need a break from your job, you can spend your lunch break walking around campus. work-life balance classes are offered for free and they are very helpful. Benefits are great. Work load wasn't stressful at all.
Work-life balance classes, free flu shots, family events, 36.25 hour work week
Princeton University is a great place to work; it is very stimulating, has great people, interesting environment, family friendly, lots of great resources. However, it is very hard to advance from within.
Video Library Assistant (Former Employee) – Princeton, NJ – March 9, 2018
Was a nice place to work. Relatively low traffic in the specific department within the library that I worked, so you a lot of free time to yourself. Hardest part of the job was towards the beginning of each semester when all the new films were being put on reserve for classes.
An excellent place to work. Good people and knowledgeable. Most people are willing to give answers and are helpful. There are occasionally, people that believe themselves superior but, you’ll have that in most places.
Great place to work, even for temp workers. The job was easy. Given time to learn new skills. Culture was great and focused on providing high quality services rather than profits. Pay was very good but temp workers did not get any benefits such as time off or training.
