Former Employee - Human Resources Associate in Cambridge, MA
Former Employee - Human Resources Associate in Cambridge, MA

I worked at Harvard University full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Harvard is one of the few employers I have experienced that really cares about employees. Benefits are great, pay is always being analyzed, and it is truly mission-based. If I hadn't moved away I would probably have spent my whole career there.

Cons

Different schools don't always communicate well.
Pay is lower than private sector.
Some issues with faculty and student egos.

Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Harvard University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Harvard offers tremendous benefits, from vacation time, medical benefits and financial investments. They offer various job opportunities and often promote from within the university. They believe in a family and work life balance. I feel fortunate to work at this university.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management strives to keep employees informed of any changes, updates, by regularly scheduling town hall meetings, where there is an open forum to address any concerns to upper management.
