    I worked at Harvard University as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a beautiful campus and you'll be surrounded by some of the smartest people in the world.

    Cons

    I was handling book and material inventory for one of the departments in Widener Library for a summer. It wasn't the most exciting job in the world, but I didn't really expect it to be. It was a decent, fair job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give access to university perks (like the gym) to temporary summer employees.

    I have been working at Harvard University part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You get to interact and work with great people doing great things. Benefits are great if you work more than half time.

    Cons

    No benefits for less than half time, and few openings to progress even if you've worked in your position from years. I hear this from other LHT workers a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more hours to LHT workers who have been employees for a long time!
