    Pros

    Fantastic benefits, many opportunities to be part of the larger university community at Harvard. Very progressive and liberal in their benefits and ideals. Overall great experience.

    Cons

    Getting things done can take a bit longer in the university culture because there are many departments and governing bodies involved with most major decisions and changes.

    Advice to Management

    Be kind to your staff, be human and reasonable. They will be happy and will be glad to work hard for you in the difficult times in turn.


  2. Good benefits and great work life balance.

    Pros

    Not that much stress on the job. Great hours and some flexibility. Great insurance benefits, time off, and holidays. Everyone is really nice.

    Cons

    Too hierarchical and things move at glacial pace. Fellow employees tend to stick around for too long causing lack of innovation and updated skills. Management seems to be out there for themselves and no enough for their subordinates.

    Advice to Management

    Strive for less hierarchy and more flat organization. Union and management standoff needs to end as soon as possible. With all the activities going on within the University in terms of growth, the University should be more willing and is able to provide more to its unionized staff.
