    I have been working at Harvard University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Being around smart people doing important work. Incredible benefits and support for life-work balance. Chances to develop professionally. Overall, an excellent place to work.

    Cons

    Higher degrees (master's, phD) are absolutely required for a huge number of positions, even if you're doing the work already. Admins can be treated poorly. Processes in HR can be very slow.
