Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Geneva, NY

I have been working at Cornell University full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The grad student stipend is very high compared to other schools I looked at.
Lots of opportunities to explore anything you are interested in through research, classes, and travel.

Cons

No guidance at all as an off main campus grad student. Had no idea what my benefits were for more than a year.
Being a Geneva based grad student means years of frustration at commuting no matter where you choose to live. You either commute for classes or for research.

    Current Employee - Research Scientist in Ithaca, NY

    I have been working at Cornell University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extremely collegial - lots of chances to gain mentorship experience
    Motivated workforce - if you are interested in working hard, you will not be alone
    Excellent campus - Ithaca is one of the best college campuses in USA. It has continually been voted the best college town, two years in a row

    Cons

    Winter - Extremely long and cold - but if you survive the first one you will get through the next 3 or 4. Also you will realize how much weather effects our professional psyche
    Location - While it has an amazing campus, its still far away from big cities and therefore attending professional events is a slight challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the environment more comfortable for research scientists, invite more industrial recruiting seminars, encourage participation in professional conferences by providing grants etc.
