I have been working at Harvard University part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

A hub of architecture culture and discourse. Draws an international body of the best students. Vital ties to the rest of the university. Great peer group of faculty.

Cons

Vague hiring and promotion policies. Competitive atmosphere among both faculty and students. However these are all the challenges that one should expect at a university of this caliber.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better and more organized mentoring of junior faculty.

    I worked at Harvard University part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity to meet great people, pay is generous, location is nice

    Cons

    Bureaucracy dominates, payroll is extremely disorganized and checks are always cut late, very difficult to communicate with upper-level employees, budget for research studies is not managed properly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to take the time to communicate with lower-tier employees who are actually out in the field doing research in schools. Most of you are completely out of touch with what really goes on and what needs to be changed.
