    I have been working at Harvard Medical School part-time

    Pros

    -The benefits are unparalleled (especially reduced price classes and health benefits) -The commitment to flexible work is progressive and helpful

    Cons

    -My manager is clearly inefficient (upper administration and most people in our department are very aware), but little has been done from a higher level to ameliorate the impacts of their inefficiencies on our department. There is actually concern that there will be layoffs directly related to the manager's disinterest in doing her job and inability to complete her tasks on time.
