No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Harvard University part-time (More than a year)

Pros

You can meet some of the most intelligent, kind, and socially gifted people of your life while working here.

Cons

It can be stressful, and there are very high expectations of performance, but not unreasonably so if you are reporting to the right person.

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

    Pros

    Vibrant community, smart and motivated people, great brand name, good experience if you want to stay in academia, very very low pay...

    Cons

    Someone with 3 scientific degrees usually earns about one half to one third of the amount someone with an undergraduate degree makes in industry or other fields like finance. This wouldn't be an issue if the absolute value was still reasonable. It isn't.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation incentives and bonuses go a long way.
