Great place to work with exceptional people
Associate (Former Employee), Holyoke Center Room 600January 6, 2015
Pros: wonderful mix of terrific people
Cons: long hours
The Office of Sponsored Programs has the best support staff in Harvard. My co-workers are second to none and are always there to lend a hand.
The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the staff and coming up with answers to tough questions.
I've learned that management is always there to help you whenever they can.

Collaborative and Productive
Research Assistant (Former Employee), Cambridge, MAJanuary 2, 2015
A typical day at work I would first check the cells and samples needed for experimentation and assess those needs. Then I would report directly to the Post-Docs that I was currently working with and collaborate with them in regards to additional research findings and experiments that needed to be done.

I learned several technical skills and base foundations for research and development.

The management was easily accessible and very collaborative.

Co-workers within an academic environment tend to vary excessively due to the innate diversity of the environment. Some were laid-back and others were unnecessarily strict, some were collaborative and others were a bit more closed off, etc. Everyone was extremely productive.

The hardest part of the job was balancing experiments with outside life. The most enjoyable part was how productive and collaborative the majority of the work place was.

mostly just productive
Maintanance (Current Employee), Bensenville, ILNovember 30, 2014
every day was different. it was the same routine but everyday something new happened to construction people working in the building or new messes i had to clean. i didn't really have many coworkers and if i did they mostly spoke Spanish. the hardest part of the job was probably making sure you didn't miss a spot because some managers are stingy about that.The best part was that i was able to clean and do my job however i wanted without someone breathing down my back,

an OK job for a graduate of a web design program at BU

I only worked there for about 6 months. I worked from home and got a teacher's assistant pay. it was not bad at all, especially since I did that before and after I gave birth to my daughter. At that time, it was the best job for me to do. very flexible in terms of hours and quite rewarding.
