    Pros

    Harvard is a fascinating place to work. There are many different positions and occupations within the University, so no doubt this varies considerably.

    Cons

    The campus union is currently in ongoing contract negotiations, and Harvard is refusing to agree to a fair deal. In the past labor relations practices have been good; I hope this is not a sign of things to come.
