    The benefits are unbelievable: sick time, paid vacation, mental health insurance, discounts, tuition reimbursement, 401K, maternity and paternity leave, the ability to work from home, and so much more.

    Harvard has amazing health benefits. there are several different options for each type of employee (union, faculty, staff, etc), but all of them are very good (POS, HMO, PPO, etc). They are each subsidized based on the level of coverage, but the premiums are reasonable. Some of the best health benefits I've ever had.
