I have been working at Harvard University full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Some astonishingly great, high energy, motivated people who usually call it the way they see it; really good locations, interesting work. Benefits are very good.

Cons

Have worked for or with a couple of people who really shouldn't be here. Sometimes the place makes hiring mistakes and can take forever to rectify them.

Advice to Management

Reward people who have good EQ and point out that this matters. You can be both kind and awesomely great at your work, at the same time.

    I have been working at Harvard University full-time

    Pros

    Good salary for higher education, great benefits. Fairly easy to move around from one office to another, or one school to another.

    Loads of bureaucracy, support staff end up with the brunt of the work, and you have to deal with irritating students and faculty.

    Advice to Management

    value support staff more
