I have been working at Harvard University full-time (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.

    I have been working at Harvard University part-time (more than an 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 - Grant Manager in Boston, MA (US)

    I worked at Harvard University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits are comprehensive and include a variety of items not found elsewhere. Generous tuition assistance plan, numerous health benefit options, fitness benefit, etc. 35-hour full-time workweek for staff.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy is everywhere. Most staff positions fall under the CTW Union, so pay raises, work schedules, etc. are fixed and non-negotiable. Pay rate is based on 35-hour workweek, so take-home pay is less than comparable positions with 40-hour workweeks.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
