Harvard provides a very good benefits package.
benefits were great, although at management level (non-Union) they were getting reduced the past few years (co-pay increase, etc.)
Harvard University has a great benefits package.
Harvard offers amazing education benefits which include $40 class at the Harvard Extension School and tuition assistance plans and reimbursements covering up to 90% for those in degree programs.
Hard to get into benefitted status.
Great health, recreational and transportation benefits
Teaching assistants and fellows are given average pay and no benefit options. I am sure the full time benefits package is better for university staff.
Best: The student BCBS PPO program is pretty good and widely accepted across the Greater Boston Area. Worst: Harvard University Health Services is scandalously decrepit when it comes to mental health considerations, which is tragically appalling given how stressful graduate school is!
The best part of the benefits package is the free healthcare. The worst part of the benefits package is the inability to save for retirement. I cannot create an IRA because the income is not considered "earned". However, the income must still be self-reported and taxes must be paid.
Good platform for scientific research
