Great atmosphere

Systems Administrator (Current Employee)
Ithaca, NY

I have been working at Cornell University

ProsGood Atmosphere, good attitude. Great leadership. Good wages and benefits. Personal development is always welcomed, with opportunities for degree programs and workshops.

ConsVery bureaucratic, fast-paced dynamic environment. No career competition in area. Reorganizing is constant, resulting in frequent changes in department, job titles, bosses, etc.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your empoloyee's workload in mind when assigning additional duties. Stop reorganizing every 6 months. Throw more department lunches, celebrations, etc.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
