    Current Employee - Graduate Student in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Harvard Medical School full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good for personal edification and inspiring conversations. Personal growth can be significant and people are professional. In terms of training, it really depends on the lab you join and its mentality/approach toward training at different stages of the academic career.

    Cons

    Competition can be intense. Stress levels high (mostly self-imposed; that's the kind of people HMS attracts).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look out for emotional health of employees, since many HMS folks are stressed but appear not to be.

    Neutral Outlook
