    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Columbia University Medical Center

    Pros

    Stable job with good benefits and flexible time. Opportunity to work with incredibly talented and passionate physicians. Tuition discount allowed me to finish my masters for a relatively cheap cost.

    Cons

    Administrative bureaucracy makes it near impossible to get anything meaningful done. HR presented misleading information; I was lured by the prospect of free tuition only to later find out that the tuition benefits had been drastically reduced just a year earlier. Dysfunctional workplace dynamics, and changing leadership, made it a difficult place to work at times. Near impossible to jump to a higher salary level unless you are VERY good at maneuvering the higher-ups.
