Fantastic place to work and do research - though it may depend slightly on what you are with.

Research Assistant II (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

I worked at Harvard University

ProsWeekly happy hours!; very collegial atmosphere; specifically, my PI was a wonderful, caring, and reasonable person to work for and I was very satisfied with the way I was treated.

ConsIt is worth noting that one's working experience at HMS may be influenced by the PI you specifically work for. I consider myself very fortunate with the PI I worked with, though I did occasionally hear from others some dissatisfaction with theirs.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
