Current Employee - Director in New York, NY
Current Employee - Director in New York, NY

I have been working at Columbia University full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The administrative teams can be amazing, hard working people who truly care about the students and delivering a great program.

Cons

It can feel like there is a class system dictating that administrators have less to contribute to the program and overall success of the school than faculty. Though faculty are certainly knowledgeable and many are truly awe-inspiring, it can be demoralizing to be treated as a second class citizen.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be clear about the values, mission and goals of the school and hold everyone accountable for their contribution, including faculty.
