Great place to work with smart people

Teaching Fellow (Current Employee)
Cambridge, MA

ProsAmazing benefits
Smart people who care about what they're doing
Cambridge is fantastic
Strong union support for many employees ensures better benefits for all (non-union too)
Discounts for events around Harvard, Boston, and even nationally

ConsNot that much as far as downsides
Could maybe streamline the application and HR appointment process

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up exactly what you're doing, because you're Harvard and there's a reason you have an endowment of 30-odd billion dollars.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
