    I worked at Columbia University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Lots of interesting things happening on campus that you can attend at little or no fee.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional environment. More than one co-worker told me to slow my work pace because I would make everyone else look bad. Getting anything accomplished was very difficult because it was an "everyone for themselves" mentality and most work was done at a snails pace. Team building was difficult because everyone wanted to know what was in it for them and "what was best for the group/program/school" was not an acceptable reason to them -- they mostly wanted a financial incentive to work together.

    Cons

    pay is really too bad and the opportunity cost is high, boring lifestyle, not many vacations, research is not useful if you want to switch industry after graduation
