Current Employee - Research Support Specialist in Ithaca, NY

I have been working at Cornell University full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Diverse workforce, great learning opportunities, supportive of families, wonderful parental leave policy, wonderful childcare grants, really nice amounts of vacation time.

Cons

While this is a complaint I have had about other universities at which I have worked, I find it disagreeable that when living in a largely rural environment that I should have to pay ever greater amounts of post-tax money to park at work. If this were not enough, it is my understanding the the university's policy is actually to REDUCE the number of parking spots over the future. Finding it unconscionable to put this financial burden on the employee, I would park off campus and walk a half-mile to my building. This made my 7 mile commute a 40-50 minute trip each way.

    I worked at Cornell University as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work environment is very friendly and encouraging. Other employees are more than willing to help out and the work itself was satisfying. The pay was good considering the relaxed work schedule and job tasks.

    Cons

    At times I felt that one of the projects I was working on had potential to be very helpful for marketing the college's strong suits that it was out of my skill set as a new intern. This was confirmed when the project was redone by a professonal

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be encouraging and helpful.

    Pros

    Depends greatly on the lab that your research takes place in, My first was a disaster, but not the university's fault. My second has been great.

    Cons

    Same as above, depends on boss or PI

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your management will be your PI.
