    I worked at Harvard University

    Pros

    The people in my office were wonderful. There was mutual respect and everyone was helpful, I never experienced people with hidden agendas or passive aggressive behavior.

    Cons

    Occasionally there are inefficiencies or hoops to jump through to get to a certain point (i.e. all the paperwork and meetings to apply for something basic like a raise or title change)
