    Former Employee - Accountant in New York, NY

    I worked at Columbia University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good campus, benefits and holidays.

    Cons

    If you are part of Morning Side Campus at Earth Institute, there is a lack of direction from senior leadership.Dysfunctional upper management who discriminates the staff. No promotions/bonuses internally. Untrained managers have poor leadership skills. Management doesn't obey the same rules that apply to their staff. The administration is very tight-fisted, and high performance is not rewarded, unless you are very astute politically.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff. Respect them and treat them equally. Senior management is not skilled to be managers.
