    The Gold Standard in Higher Education

    Former Employee - Temporary Staff Assistant  in  Cambridge, MA
    Former Employee - Temporary Staff Assistant in Cambridge, MA

    I worked at Harvard University as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Smart people who are good at what they do. I worked as a temp for about 4 months and felt welcomed and valued. I was actually offered a full time position there but turned it down for a position at another University and regret it every day!

    Cons

    You definitely have to start at the bottom and work your way up. Very difficult to get in unless you know someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing!
