Typical academic postdoctoral position
Postdoctoral Scholar (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAJune 30, 2018
The desire and need for publications led to conflicts in scientific integrity. In academic institutions, the work culture is heavily dependent on the individual labs. PI's matter more then the President, Dean, Provost, or Department Chairs.

Research Professor (Current Employee) –  Medford, MAJune 22, 2018
There is no safety net for research faculty. Go tenure track or don't go. What else is there to say about a University? It's good to its Tenured Faculty.

Great place to work
Administrator (Current Employee) –  Medford, MAJune 14, 2018
Small town feel in the middle of the city. You have access to all resources found in Boston but can enjoy the benefits of a small campus community. Opportunity to grow through attending classes and workshops.

Tufts- International Programs and Partnerships
Instructor and Academic Resource Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Medford, MAJune 9, 2018
Collegial and collaborative environment for those who teach. Students are good and for the most part, hard working and pleasant to work with. Supportive Manager where I am working however lots of pressure from above particularly on financial /dept budgeting causing people in my unit to STILL have TEMP status (hired semester to semester) as opposed to Adjunct status (UNION). I have been there near 6 years, no long term contracts possible, no benefits and employment is dependent on enrollment and NO seniority in the job.

Fair hourly rate of pay for part time teaching but could be a bit higher. No benefits.
Pros
Collegial environment
Cons
No benefits

Poor managment skills
Electrician (Current Employee) –  Medford, MAMay 21, 2018
Union work environment in a non-union company. Manager can be condescending and offten exhibits signs of jealousy for they are not union. Same old thing just change a few light bulbs and ballast and not use your true skill set. Be aware those who have extensive skills in wiring you will be bored to death.
