I worked at Columbia University part-time for less than a year

Pros

There are some truly brilliant people that you will be surrounded by. The hours are not too demanding usually and the pay isn't terrible. Also its nice to be able to work your way around the faculty to find an interesting research group. Environment is generally stressfree. Beautiful Campus and love the city

Cons

Work can be slow and frustrating as it is research. Different PI's will treat you differently. Difficult to branch in from outside of the university

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

    Pros

    there are great employee benefits

    Cons

    they are not really an EOE. The jobs posted on the website are already filled, or the employer already has a candidate in mind. The job is still posted for the public to view and apply for, but it is already filled.
