I worked at Columbia University

Pros

Intellectual stimulation, interesting colleagues, and a great work environment are some of the factors that contribute to a satisfying work experience.

Cons

The fact that the university is huge makes for a big bureaucracy that slows things down. One needs a lot of patience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please do not make further cuts to benefits. Please reward gifted managers and staff members. Sometimes they are sacrificed during the numerous reorganizations that take place.

    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
