    I worked at Harvard University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are excellent, from health care choices to the access to the amazing intellectual and cultural resources. Coworkers tend to be brilliant, often underemployed, and the standards are very high. Work/life balance is a priority in most units.

    Cons

    At an organization that has been around for almost 400 years, inertia can be a problem. It often feels like great ideas take ages to be implemented. The decentralized nature of the place makes it hard to get things done.

    I worked at Harvard University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Harvard has some of the best benefits around - time off, health and retirement, discounts on Boston events, etc.
    Generally good people.
    Network is huge, so there are a lot of resources to take advantage of.

    Cons

    HR is incompetent, and there is a lot of competition at Harvard, so it can be a high stress environment.
