Superintendent/Facilities Manager (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – August 15, 2018
Yale has a lot to offer and you have to want to work. You must be able to multitask and keep a level head. An average day is knowing how to be flexible with your time and work load. You will be pulled in many directions but at the end you can figure it out if you keep yourself organized.
The most enjoyable part of working at Yale is watching your staff make the students feel part of the college. We are family and it is what drives us all do to our best.
Medical Secretary (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – August 15, 2018
Most of the time the managers were so stressed due to the savings & loan crisis at it's peak, their jobs on the line made it hard to work for some. Best of them were not actual managers but employers who were department heads, this group was very good in communications and in stable jobs. I loved the variety of the work, each and every department was in flux due to staff turnover (the outgoing secretaries) and not able to attract permanent staff due to eccentric employers. I didn't mind the eccentric employers, that is what made the work a good challenge in the first place. I was fast, efficient and accurate. I did want to be hired but politics being what they were, I was not at that time but I sure did a long run on float and it was so much better doing that when the rest of regular secretaries were ready to retire facing layoffs and loss of their benefits.
diversity in job types, employers, and work styles
Props (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – June 29, 2018
I loved every moment at Yale University working in the theatre. I enjoyed who I worked with and the challenge in gave me. We never knew what time of personality we were going to work with and therefore had to adjust our style to match theirs.
Account Assistant IV (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – June 25, 2018
Great place to work, productive with on-going opportunity for advancement.The workday would include meetings for meeting goals and any updated information needed, work breaks, and lunch. I learned new ways to be better effective at my job and new medical systems. All of my supervisors and management as a whole were always there to help me improve at my job or be concerned with anything that was going on in my personal life that was a concern. The workplace culture was upbeat respectful and fun. The hardest part of the job was learning how to incorporate new medical software systems into already established workflow. The most enjoyable part of my day was meeting my goals.
Lively place to work with state-of-the-art laboratories
Research Associate (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – June 21, 2018
Yale offers state-of-the-art facilities for research scientists. The environment is collaborative. There is no cafeteria near the TAC bldg. There is no place to park on campus. Area south of medical campus is questionable neighborhood.

Associate Director - Service Management (Former Employee) – Science Park – June 11, 2018
Yale is one of the worlds great institutions. In the current environment, you're pretty much going to be signing up to be a 'coastal elite' as opposed to a deplorable. Guilty. But you will be on the intellectual and academic cutting edge. If you the opportunity arises, take it.
One of the most amazing institutions in the world
A lot of stuff hasn't changed in 300 years. Wow...
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – June 10, 2018
I worked under a grant developing DSMIV criteria to add children's diagnoses. I very much enjoyed every aspect of the process under the federal grant. I learned a lot and worked with great people. It was a once in a lifetime experience.

The work environment is busy, but there is often help and assistance from coworkers to complete the mission and exceed goals. I like the environment, many are willing to share their knowledge to complete assignment and work as a team.

Temporary Exec Office admin (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – May 29, 2018
I loved each and every position, the doctors were fantastic. It was the other managers and support staff that had issues. Nearly all the jobs had private offices, that made those staff that only had cubbies or hallways very frustrated.
doctors, nurses, other departments' staff, private office
office manager and secretaries in one department all gone by now
