Harvard offers a substantial benefits package that includes competitive salaries, generous healthcare options and paid vacation for most full- and part-time RAs. Working at Harvard you also gain access to advantages and perks that are unique to an academic institution. If you’re interested in earning a degree, adding to your skill set, or just exploring a new topic of study, the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) allows you to enroll in undergraduate and graduate level courses at Harvard Extension School for as little as $40—or take advantage of generous subsidies for courses at other schools.

It’s also worth noting that HBS has many facilities—from the Shad Fitness and Recreation Center to the Spangler Center cafeteria—that are truly exceptional. We also support employees through an array of services designed to make life easier. Our concierge service can help plan your next vacation or find the perfect Mother’s Day gift. Harvard also provides access to a full menu of options for child care, with six day care centers located around the University (one on the HBS campus itself). Finally, your Harvard ID is more than a picture of yourself you can’t stand. It’s your passport to a University-wide offering of libraries, museums, and events, as well as discounts to movies, plays, sporting events, and cultural activities in the New England area at large.
