A Few Things to Expect as a Watson Team Member:

A lot is expected of our team and we pride ourselves on being one of the most efficient and fun teams out there. For all full time staff, Watson provides unlimited paid vacation (in addition to three mandatory weeks of vacation), a monthly personal/professional development fund, and the chance to shift the course of higher education and the lives of some of the world’s most promising next generation leaders and entrepreneurs.
