    I worked at Columbia Law School

    Pros

    Great benefits - medical, dental, flex spending, tuition reimbursement. Many wonderful people in the office. Competitive pay.

    Cons

    Frequent turn around. Poor management - manager would take credit for others' ideas, refused to learn the database which made it difficult on team members, and resented those that wanted to grow/apply for positions within Columbia. Who you work for makes all the difference at CLS. There's quite a bit of favoritism.

    I have been working at Columbia Law School part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Research projects were interesting and I could work from home. I was passionate about the work had an opportunity to work with professors i respected.

    Cons

    Management was poor and communication problems occurred frequently. Several people in my position left before I did, which I initially thought was because they were not doing the work at a satisfactory level. Now I suspect that the problem is related to management and not the workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should hire a project manager instead of employing lots of part time researchers who do not coordinate in order to save everyone time.
