I worked at Harvard University full-time (more than a year)

Pros

I think they treat their employees very well.

Cons

There is a lot of administrative hassle!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I know it's an academic institution but try and be more nimble! It feels like so much time and money get taken by admin issues.

    Pros

    Access to many proprietary resources, Learning and working with some of the best in their fields, Many opportunities for networking and making new connections

    Cons

    In any academic environment the pace is much slower and this takes adjustment. In research showing your worth is not always seen as important and the investigator's time is very limited so you must be proactive in managing your career.
