Pros

Great please to spend several years of your life. Access to great facilities, libraries. Fun town, campus.

Cons

Like many universities, Cornell needs to figure out what to do with its PhD. It can't keep training them for lives with academia. Better career development is necessary. More resources to facilitate efficient and rapid completion of dissertation and degree requirements.

Advice to Management

Need to think big and take leadership in the changing role of higher education.

    Pros

    Graduate student stipend and benefits afford good lifestyle in Ithaca. High quality researchers and labs available. World class libraries and subscriptions to journals and services.

    Cons

    Very poor career development resources overall, especially for Ph.D. students seeking non-academic career tracks. Remote location makes travel for research or other purposes difficult.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my time at the Cornell university library. I got to work with great people and do really fun and interesting projects. Everyone I met was excited about their work and helpful.

    Cons

    The library is very old school and resistant to change. It's hard to get some people to see the new and better ways of doing things that technology allows us. Some staff members have been working there for decades. This probably isn't as much of a problem any more with the staff reductions that happened after the recession but still could be.
