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

    Pros

    Harvard is one of the few employers I have experienced that really cares about employees. Benefits are great, pay is always being analyzed, and it is truly mission-based. If I hadn't moved away I would probably have spent my whole career there.

    Cons

    Different schools don't always communicate well.
    Pay is lower than private sector.
    Some issues with faculty and student egos.
