Great colleagues. My department was great But Tufts seems to care more about revenue more than the employees. It’s very political which departments get funded. The culture used to be better. When I left for another job, I began making 50% higher salary. Staying a long time at Tufts hurt my earning potential significantly
Pros
Good Colleagues
Cons
Political/too many bosses

Well before I started, I filled out Direct Deposit information. Yet, it took almost a month for the direct deposit to become active. I also signed up for Commuter Benefits, but I still hadn't received my MBTA pass within the 90 days I worked there. In the department I worked in, there was a definite culture of hazing. There was even a team meeting about the very issue. The long term employee s seemed to routinely to tune out management.

The staff was laid-back, but serious and collaborative. Results are achieved through various manners. I can only assume that the culture has not changed through the years.

Worked as a student researcher (unpaid position). It was a great environment to learn the basics of cell culture, tissue engineering, and other lab techniques.

En un día normal enseñaba dos o tres recitations de español con unos 10 estudiantes en cada clase. Una vez a la semana me reunía con el director del departamento y los otros asistentes del profesor para organizar las clases de la semana. Era un buen ambiente laboral y un gran trabajo para estudiantes

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.

Tufts Graduate programs in science are top notch. The research taking place at Tufts is competitive and led by passionate, intelligent, and motivational individuals. I would definitely recommend Tufts to anyone seeking a higher degree in the sciences.

Tufts is a very good place to work. Like most academic settings, the salaries aren't competitive with industry, but the work itself is rewarding and interesting.
