I have been working at Harvard University full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Harvard offers tremendous benefits, from vacation time, medical benefits and financial investments. They offer various job opportunities and often promote from within the university. They believe in a family and work life balance. I feel fortunate to work at this university.

Cons

I can't think of any cons.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper Management strives to keep employees informed of any changes, updates, by regularly scheduling town hall meetings, where there is an open forum to address any concerns to upper management.

    I have been working at Harvard University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    well paid and less work. 20 hours/week. i teach weekly section and office hour. there are 4 teaching fellows in a section of 80 student. all of the other teaching fellows have taken this course so it is very easy to manage them

    Cons

    the tuition is not waived for this position, so the salary cannot cover everything and i still need financial aid from somewhere else

    Former Employee - Assistant Director in Cambridge, MA (US)

    I worked at Harvard University full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The benefits are excellent, from health care choices to the access to the amazing intellectual and cultural resources. Coworkers tend to be brilliant, often underemployed, and the standards are very high. Work/life balance is a priority in most units.

    Cons

    At an organization that has been around for almost 400 years, inertia can be a problem. It often feels like great ideas take ages to be implemented. The decentralized nature of the place makes it hard to get things done.
