I have been working at Columbia University full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

It is good for doing research and if you like New York City then you will enjoy the main campus on the Upper West Side/Harlem.

Cons

The administration and IT is going to drive you nuts and you will struggle to make it to the end of the month. Medical campus is located in a bad and dirty neighborhood. The metro station (168th Street) probably the worst in Manhattan.
