Pros

Fantastic work environment Very sympathetic regarding employees' academic work loads Lots of autonomy Flexible hours Great coworkers Friendly management

Cons

None, really. I suppose there isn't much room for upward mobility, but it is a research facility and I was employed as a student assistant.

    Pros

    Harvard attracts intelligent, diverse, multi-talented people. The benefits are first-rate and there is a lot of internal opportunity. Most jobs allow excellent work-life balance. Many opportunities for employee advancement and education.

    Cons

    Somewhat stovepiped. Experiences at individual departments may vary widely. Some of the central IT departments are slow to adopt new technologies and there's far too much tendency to produce software in-house. Internal projects that run across "tubs" can crawl. There is a huge abyss between faculty and staff.

    Advice to Management

    Work to bring faculty and staff closer together. Utilize consultants to determine which projects are appropriate. Bring time
