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

Pros

Fantastic benefits, many opportunities to be part of the larger university community at Harvard. Very progressive and liberal in their benefits and ideals. Overall great experience.

Cons

Getting things done can take a bit longer in the university culture because there are many departments and governing bodies involved with most major decisions and changes.

Advice to Management

Be kind to your staff, be human and reasonable. They will be happy and will be glad to work hard for you in the difficult times in turn.

    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.
