    I worked at Columbia University

    Pros

    The environment is very satisfying and can work and study in the meanwhile. Have access to the university library systems.

    Cons

    The payment is not very competitive and with limited space of promotion. The bonus is very low with fixed working hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more positions to the students currently in school. Increase hourly pay and introduce the promotion career path. Increase salary.

    I worked at Columbia University

    Pros

    celebration of monthly birthdays with free cake every month is the only effort made to boost the severely sagging morale at this place

    Cons

    cramped work spaces, with some staff stuffed into empty old apartments instead of professional office environment
    senior leaders are very disrespectful of project managers time with constantly rescheduled and cancelled meetings, sometimes showing up up to 30 minutes late, sometimes never showing up at all- without any explanation.
     Extremely high turnover- 4 managers have quit , each staying less than a year on the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your extremely high turnover and extremely low morale as a reflection of an unprofessional environment.
    Why schedule internal departmental meetings with staff if senior leadership assigns these meetings such a low priority that they are so frequently rescheduled, cancelled, or senior leadership doesn't even show up for their own staff meetings? clearly the message is that you could not care less about your staff or the work they do
