I have been working at Harvard University

Pros

I enjoy working at Harvard. Great benefits and tuition reimbursement. People are very enthusiastic and strive to be the best.

Cons

Wish I could be making more money. Raises seem to come few and far between because you are basically forced to be in the Union at a certain pay grade.

    I worked at Harvard University

    Pros

    Name. Goes far - in and out of Boston.

    Cons

    Promotions for mediocrity only. Very political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the blind faith of alum employees - they are bringing the institution down in most centers and departments.
