The problem with work-life balance is a widespread issue at Princeton. It's prestigious for a reason. You will work in an exciting and innovative community, with leaders in the field, but don't expect a 40-hour work week. They are accommodating for flexibility of time and location, when possible, but this is mainly because everyone puts in more than enough hours each week. Be prepared to work long and odd hours. The parking lot is full, even in the evenings and on weekends.
Interning for the university opened my eyes to new and interesting ways to tackle problems effectively. The full-time employees truly care for each intern's aspirations and willingness to learn.
With no warning. Constant turnover, old boy network method of management. Each new man brought in another man he had worked with. A few token women but not sincere.

Help people considering your employer. Share your experience.
Administration only promotes Caucasians. Hispanics are totally ignored. I worked here and was denied promotions over less qualified people. HR is a joke.
Proximity to home.
No diversity here. Administration officials are focused on only raising money.
Interviewing is a long process. I have worked as a contractor numerous times, but have not been able to get in permanently. I have had both pleasant and very unpleasant experiences with some Department Heads and have found some of them to be very racist. How hard it is to work with leaders who are unfair and unjust to their workers working under racist leaders.

I enjoyed being a student worker at Rockefeller College/Princeton University. I helped students who came to the Rockefeller College office sign up for meetings with the Dean of Student Life and Dean of Academic Studies. I enjoyed interfacing with the deans and fellow office coworkers.
Princeton offers tons of research opportunities. As someone interested in renewable energy and energy storage research, I had no problem finding research internships and even publishing a few papers.
Great learning opportunity for a person that is interested in being in a Help Desk support position and to start off a career. Working and being apart of several teams that only want to help and push you to get the best of the timed experience.
It is a very good place to work, with very good benefits. Cost of living is extremely high in the area, and compensation does not quite match that, especially if you are a recent college graduate with Student Loans. You end up having to work so much to pay bills you don't have a life.
Needed a career change, and wanted to take the break in between, to travel with my mom. She had a stroke and shingles in the beginning of 2019 and is almost fully recovered. I am truly thankful, so that we could travel to places she has always wanted to go.
Opportunity to grow if take initiative. Lots of training opportunities in writing, budgeting, management, diversity, etc. Good work life balance and benefits. The mission and vision are clear.
collaborative, good benefits
can be difficult to transition to new position
