Junior Designer (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – May 24, 2016
Harvard was an amazing experience and I made connections that will last a life time. Your co-workers are so friendly and always there to support you and lift you up. Everyone works towards the same goals and the passion for what you do is so evident in the work place. It was difficult at times for myself as an artist to work with medical researchers because it took a while to understand the lingo and basis of our goals. Overall, it was wonderful and I don't have many negative things to say.

Working along side a team of 5 Teaching Fellows in addition to the head of the team, the course organizer, and the executive learning program manager is an experience full of learning for many aspects; preparing each and every detail of the course, the teaching points, and the lessons meanwhile maintaining an open mind for learning and reflecting in every single meeting. This year is my third year joining this part time job, and I keep doing it because I can feel the difference and the improvement every year.
Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – May 20, 2016
The ability to make improvements or changes at Harvard University is painstakingly slow and management is unwilling to dive into them because they do not want to be held responsible when things don't work out.
The job will always be a secure one while being in the union and the pay will be on par with other companies. The benefits are great if you use them but don't expect much advancement unless you are good with politics and plan to work past the normal hours of business.
The best way to advance is to move between different schools as promoting within is not as common. Many employees have left for better jobs to come back at a higher position.

A typical day at work remains very committed and considerably busy. Its a great place to work and contribute at the same time. Most of the people are supportive and help you out-perform than what you expect out of yourself. Management is just average; it may vary from department to department, still the old school. Co-workers are superb, talented and simply awesome!! I love my co-workers just like the family members. Irrespective of race and religion the work environment is very conducive and optimized to perform to the fullest of your potential. Productive and conducive work place!
