    Excellent benefits package, for retirement as well as healthcare. Harvard's benefits package was reputed to be one of the better ones in the Boston area, making up for lower salaries.

    They pay most of the healthcare. Decent 403b options and Harvard pays into it regardless of what the employee does. Commuter benefits are great if you don't drive.
