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

    Pros

    Benefits are fantastic, and union membership is a huge plus. The pay is very good, considering how easy my job is.

    Cons

    My particular position has absolutely no opportunity for growth, or even expanded responsibilities in the role, because my office fights to justify every one of its staff to a department that seems to think we're unnecessary. My job is permanent, but has a mandatory 8-week absence every summer, and it is the lowest pay grade at the University. I have interviewed for several other jobs elsewhere at the University, with no success, in spite of my extensive resume. Internal competition for other jobs here is fierce.
