    Current Employee - Web Developer in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Harvard University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Generous benefits, interesting projects. It is important that you can work on the project independently from start to finish. I like the ability to take classes for free or very cheap. It provides opportunity to advance in your profession. Environment is great, people are friendly, educated. I also like the fact that I have a chance to interact with people who came from different parts of the world.

    Cons

    Salaries may not be as high as in some commercial companies, but I consider this a trade-off for the less stressful environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good job.
