Current Employee - Associate Business Process Analyst in New York, NY (US)

I have been working at Columbia University full-time for more than a year

Pros

* Vacation time is great
* Healthcare benefits are good
* Relaxed environment
* No Stress
* No Pressures

Cons

* You're basically going nowhere
* HR keeps changing benefits w/out notification
  --Tuition benefit has changed 5 times in the ONE year I've been ehre
* NO movement whatsoever
* Compensation SUCKS and they use "The Economy" as an excuse

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have the resources to provide. If you want to keep talent, tuition incentives are a BIG deal.

    I have been working at Columbia University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are great to work with, collegiate environment, opens up the window to building new connections and opportunities, enjoy the opportunity to work with other people across different discplines

    Cons

    Very stagnant academic environment, too many postodocs hanging around hoping for an academic job to open, not enough alternatives for a career outside academia discussed, lack of diversity in engineering especially women and minorities, wish for more opprotunities to grow and improve soft skills outside of the laboratory.
