health insurance is unbeatable Contribute 5%, they match 10% pto/sick/flex equates to roughly 4-5 weeks a year, plus weeklong recess between Christmas and new year University managers collaborate with you for weekly coverage (appts, etc)
-there is no collaboration because two direct managers and it feels like the clinical team is stuck in the middle -one manager controls your schedule but does not communicate changes with your actual university manager -you are asked to change your schedule frequently via text and that text can come off hours or on weekends, there are no boundaries -some management is micromanaging, unapproachable, hostile and reactive which creates a toxic work environment. -they strive to leverage our clinical skills and send us to multiple facilities on the daily, but it takes away from our collaboration with the coordinators/PIs when we are assigned as leads for certain studies -fails to incorporate time needed for office work, instead will send you to another unit -parking is $180/month -benefits are based on percentile-meaning if you get a yearly merit increase, your monthly premiums on your health insurance will increase (wow)1

Decent mental health benefits Having Yale on your resume
Complete disappointment. Yale University may have once earned the reputation it has now, but it no longer deserves it. A lot of mismanagement. PIs often lack empathy and often poorly treat people. Yale does not seem to care how people are treated as long as the PI is brining in grant money and publications. My mental health suffered greatly here along with several other people I knew. Yale does not seem to foster free thinking and disagreeing with a PI can be problematic. The culture is very cut throat, unsupportive, shallow, and demoralizing. No one in management seems to take responsibility for anything and always seems to scapegoat people below them. Favoritism seems to prevail over merit. Anytime I asked about advancement, I felt my self worth was attacked in the form of “where else could you go making how much you do doing what you do.” By the end of the day I was so demoralized and tired I had no energy to do anything in my personal time. Yale was complete hell and made me feel worthless. That feeling of being worthless made me stay longer and put up with more than I should have, and my mental health greatly improved after leaving. They seem to expect complete loyalty from you, but don’t expect any loyalty from them. So disappointed in my experience here.1

Status symbol will trick people into thinking you are more qualified than you actually are
creepy high level powerful doctors and teachers take advantage of status and will violate/assault lower-level employees without recourse. Conservative men are shunned and hated will force you out and assault you when they are done using you.

The job had a flexible schedule, and shifts were late night, almost daily.
The Morse college did not always have open shifts, as the buttery was in maintenance.

The name. That’s it. The equipment is old. The people are toxic (typical old white men club) and it’s the usual academia. Use the name as a stepping stone to land yourself your next job, be it in academia or industry. Upside is the healthcare is great.
The salary is awful. It’s typical old white mens club so sucks if you’re a minority.
