    Pros

    They have the college tuition benefit. Decent name on resume.

    Cons

    No one is in charge. Doctors cannot manage people and support staff is completely left to run amok. Admins come in a few days a week if at all. no safety standards are followed. No fire safety, no industrial hygiene followed. No one is running the show.

    Advice to Management

    Better wake up. The reputation is on the line

    I worked at Columbia University Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Good vacation benefits, okay healthcare, tuition exemption (if you get into a program), and work with some smart people.

    Cons

    A lot of work for the pay compensation, PIs can be cheap, dealing with people in the university sucks, bureaucracy, no mobility, they would rather hire someone new than to promote you, and rarely appreciated for your hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and definitely have manager training. My manager was paid 6 figures but was always on vacation or sick...and took credit for our work.
