    I have been working at Cornell University

    Pros

    Leading academic institution -our students, faculty and alumni are the best there is.
    Very good benefits
    Very rewarding to work at a place that is literally changing the world for the better

    Cons

    Higher education = a lot of bureaucracy and red tape
    Not as innovative or entrepreneurial as you would think
    Very slow to make change
    Pay is very good in Ithaca but well below market in other cities (NY, CA, DC, etc)
    Not enough "new blood" in leadership. Most people have been here their whole careers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognition and rewarding hard work of employees
    Better pay for those outside Ithaca
    Leverage right people's strengths for specific roles
