Approves of CEO

I have been working at Harvard University full-time (More than a year)

Pros

intellectual crowd, excellent research, good courses, great teachers, nice city to be in. YOu would love it if you want ti have a intelllectually satisfying life.

Cons

Too cut-throat atmosphere, grilling teachers. Sometimes it can be really stressful. Lot of hours in the library studying, and still you may feel very behind in studies.

Advice to Management

Take care of student integrity values

    I have been working at Harvard University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Rich school. Many seminars/workshops with great scholars. Lots of lunch seminars - you may not pay often for lunch!

    Cons

    Great scholars nearby - you might be overwhelmed easily. Some bureaucracy - took a month to get a ID card! Benefits are different per faculty/staff/postdoc/temporary. Parking is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    N/A - not familiar with upper management

    Pros

    Harvard is a fascinating place to work. There are many different positions and occupations within the University, so no doubt this varies considerably.

    Cons

    The campus union is currently in ongoing contract negotiations, and Harvard is refusing to agree to a fair deal. In the past labor relations practices have been good; I hope this is not a sign of things to come.
