    Pros

    Very impressed with the culture and the people. Campus is vibrant, facilities are in reasonably good shape.

    Cons

    Tough commute to the Upper West Side from East Side. Lot of construction still on-going all over campus, it's usually very loud outside my office.

  2. Treatment of non-PhD staff is horrific.

    Pros

    Lots of vacation and benefits.

    Cons

    Non-PhD staff are underpaid and treated like half-wits regardless of non-academia experience.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting the budget for communications staff.
