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

    Pros

    A hub of architecture culture and discourse. Draws an international body of the best students. Vital ties to the rest of the university. Great peer group of faculty.

    Cons

    Vague hiring and promotion policies. Competitive atmosphere among both faculty and students. However these are all the challenges that one should expect at a university of this caliber.

    Advice to Management

    Better and more organized mentoring of junior faculty.


  2. "Great people, interesting exposure."

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Harvard University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to interact and work with great people doing great things. Benefits are great if you work more than half time.

    Cons

    No benefits for less than half time, and few openings to progress even if you've worked in your position from years. I hear this from other LHT workers a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Give more hours to LHT workers who have been employees for a long time!
