    Great benefits. Pay is competitive and they have a great work life balance for employees, adding to the benefits.

    A variety of options including a low cost plan that depends on mainly using university health services, which is excellent, so a great value. Generous retirement contribution matching. Getting to take Extension School classes for $40 each is also pretty amazing.

    Employee Discount, health insurance, maternity and paternity leave, and tuition discount, are great.

    The best thing about the Harvard Benefits package is the TAP program. Harvard provides tremendous discounts on Continuing Education at the Harvard Extension School. An employee with 3 months of experience can being a Masters Program for a fraction of the cost.

    You'll be hard pressed to find a more comprehensive benefits package than Harvard's. They contribute 5% to your retirement with no required contribution for you. This goes to 10% after you turn 40, generous time off, and probably the highest compensation in higher ed in the Boston area.

    I think the paid vacation time off and the education benefit are the best about the benefits package

    Generous time off, good retirement package, trying harder to accommodate flexible schedules but could still be better/have more modern policies
