I have been working at Harvard University

Pros

Harvard has many resources at its disposal and is able to provide many opportunities to interact with leading researchers in a wide variety of fields.

Cons

Depending on who you work with, the environment can be more cut-throat than collegial, although my own experiences have been overwhelmingly positive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Several recent graduate students I have spoken with have felt that there could be more support or guidance for finding positions outside of academia.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are great and there are so many paid holidays and vacation time.

    Cons

    Staff needs all these perks and time off to retain mental health while dealing with the maze of disorganization, procedures that vary for the most minute details, and the many, many steps where something can break down and not get done in spite of the fact that you've taken all the right steps. Also, unless you're faculty or a scholar you're really not important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget who's doing all the work.
