    Pros

    GREAT benefits including $40 classes at Harvard Extension school, taught by Harvard and MIT professors. Top pay for administration plus generous contributions to IRAs. Classes offered for professional advancement.

    Cons

    The higher up the ladder you go the more difficult the people are to work with (this experience only applies to the SEAS division).

    Advice to Management

    More recognition for a job well done, would be nice.
