    I worked at Columbia University full-time

    Pros

    The people who work in athletics truly get behind one another with full support of every athletic team in the university. City is beautiful, and so are the athletic facilities, especially the football stadium.

    Cons

    The outdoor and indoor facilities are 100 blocks apart.

    Advice to Management

    Put more money into athletics, get an ice hockey team to compete with the other ivy leagues.
