"I worked at Harvard University's Chemistry department for two years of my undergrad studies. The lab I was in had wonderful and highly intelligent people who were kind, respectful and very open to teaching and explaining concepts I did not fully understand."

"Resources are plenty, the real experiences varies a lot depending on your adviser. Postdocs in some labs (biology or chemistry) may take 5 years or more. Before you join, think about what you want to be after 5 years. Look at the past members as they will provide a good idea where you will be. But some labs simply get a lot of people and only the best and fortunate did well. Do the math."

"Great academic environment, huge opportunity to grow professionally, only if mentored by the right professor. Not all the departments offer the exact same level of dominance in the field, as you expect from a Harvard school, but in some areas, the research level is top of its class. Therefore, a fascinating place to work and grow. However, the environment is overly competitive, which sometimes harm, while on the other hand, it can help you thrive. A bad aspect is that the system is highly bureaucratic, which sometimes makes for fell left aside. Nonetheless, that is not an issue for someone joining for the experience and for learning, to later go somewhere else to excel."
