I worked at Columbia University full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Great team. It's important to gel with the team you sign on to as so much of your interaction will be with the team rather than the school as a whole
- Good work-life balance. The job does not require much commitment outside of working hours (9-5 generally)

Cons

- Promotions are limited to the department. Any job transitions outside of the department will be treated as a general hire.
- You need to be self motivated to not be discouraged by the sometimes indifferent employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's a hard job to manage so many independent departments. There's not much company culture, although there is a good deal of company morale generated from the company's academic prestige.
