Research Assistant, Child Study Center (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – February 1, 2018
I am not qualified to evaluate Yale as an employer since it has been a long time since I have worked there. I will say however that their exponential growth as of late doesn't seem to have the necessary supporting infrastructure and there seems to be a lot of employee turnover.

Daily interaction with patients and their families to take care of their appointment needs and any other appointments with specialists.Coordination of their benefits and making sure records are accurate
Security Officer (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – January 29, 2018
Yale is a good company, but if you don't know someone in a higher position there is know room for growth> very unfair and deceptive company. I would recommend working there if you don't wanna dread everyday going to work.
Safety Advisor (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – January 28, 2018
Yale is a world reknowned institution with cutting edge research and a vibrant research community. Underneath this shiny gold layer there is an entire another world of Yale Administration which leaves much to be desired. The office where I worked had employees who have been with Yale for donkey years giving them a sense of entitlement of kings in medieval times. Only after I left Yale, did I realize what an unprofessional place my office at Yale was full of prejudiced people grouped in silos. I made numerous complaints to Human Resources who should be called inhuman resources as they were clearly in bed with mangagement. Overall, it’s only the health benifits that made me stay for a few years but nothing is worth the corrosive atmosphere that took a huge toll on my well being
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Newe Haven, Connecticut – January 26, 2018
I worked alone in a lab doing electrophoresis on bird proteins. I worked entirely alone for a whole year. The only contact I had with other personnel or employers in the building was when they came to my lab to review my results and/ or ask questions. I was trained for 1 or 2 days in the beginning. After that, I was left alone.Occasionally I was visited by a graduate student.
Animal tech (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – January 25, 2018
I loved this job. It was a great atmosphere with friendly people. You get a lot of exercise in at this job too. It was fast paced but not stressful. Had to move so had to leave. Miss everyone there. Supervisors were friendly and helpful.
Ph.D. Graduate Student (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – January 23, 2018
This university is of course one of the most well known in the field. They are constantly striving to be better, and I think that the climate should improve here in order to continue to attract top notch candidates.
Pot washer (sorted and removed trash) (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – January 22, 2018
Enjoyed working at Yale University. Management showed favoritism at times. As long as you do your work, they were pretty fair. Now that the contract has changed, maybe some of the managers has as well.
Maintenance Assistant (Temporary Assignment) (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – January 22, 2018
It was the best job and University I ever worked at. The job was challenging but not too difficult and everyone was willing to help or direct you. I learned a lot from my supervisor and coworker about proper applicable methods to moving material, electronic technology, planning and installation. Nothing was hard and the most enjoyable part of the job was the responsibility to work alone with the confidence from your supervisors and coworkers as well as in a team effort.
Postgraduate Researcher (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – January 17, 2018
Collaborative environment where you get a chance to grow and learn from experienced scientists. Most of my work was reviewing clinical information for research projects so I spent the day analyzing databases.
Sr. Administrtative Assistant (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – January 17, 2018
The benefits are good, but as every union contract is updated, they get worse. Free health insurance and a percent of children's college tuition reimbursement after 7 years is the only reason I stay in this job. Upper management in most departments seems to turn a blind eye in regards to toxic work environments and bullying. Salary is lower than in private sector but the benefits do make up for it. The union is strong and helpful.
