Harvard University Employee for 2 years

Financial Analyst (Current Employee) Boston, MA

ProsReally good benefits (3-4 weeks vacation and 2 weeks sick time, health benefits, 11 paid holidays, paid Christmas break ,competitive salaries, education benefits, etc), Harvard tries to promote from within, at least in my department-room to get promoted or move to other departments, great people to work with

ConsWith Harvard relying on large endowment and the state of economy, fears about getting laid off

Advice to Senior ManagementStop creating so many associate directors, VPs, and associate dean positions! Too many chiefs and not enough indians. When layoffs happen, it's never the upper level management that gets the ax. But they continue to create these highly salaried positions when we need more regular employees-they're the ones that do the real work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
