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

Pros

Harvard University have a wide array of great benefits such as retirement plan and subsidized education at several Harvard coursed. In most of cases you either pay around 60.00 for tuition or 10% of course. Also, Harvard offer a very good health plan and some money that you can use towards gym membership in addition to a steeped subsidized gym at Harvard campus.

Cons

The major con at Harvard is the bureaucracy.

    I worked at Harvard University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were nice - some of the managers were good. Pay was very competitive and good benefits.

    Cons

    Very low workload, emphasized in interview what a challenging and interesting job it would be but it was not. Almost everyone there was much older and things moved very slowly.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training and support to staff. Make sure you actually have a job for people to do before you hire them.
