Negative Outlook

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.

    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!


  2. "Worked in library; decent but boring job"

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Harvard University as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a beautiful campus and you'll be surrounded by some of the smartest people in the world.

    Cons

    I was handling book and material inventory for one of the departments in Widener Library for a summer. It wasn't the most exciting job in the world, but I didn't really expect it to be. It was a decent, fair job.

    Advice to Management

    Give access to university perks (like the gym) to temporary summer employees.
