    I have been working at Cornell University full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits, great students and colleagues

    I worked at Cornell University for less than a year

    Pros

    Working with and for hardworking students and faculty, especially as far as engineering is concerned. Good facilities and perks around the town.

    Cons

    Too sporadic deadlines, have to deal with a lot of lack of confidence in students. Getting out of Ithaca is difficult.

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

    Pros

    Cornell located on a campus that stands out for its physical beauty, wonderful libraries, and full-time faculty positions. There's a strong commitment to academic freedom, and faculty voice among the faculty in Arts and Sciences, and in individual departments across the rest of the University.

    Cons

    Status, salary, voting rights, and time-off dramatically differ for full-time non-tenure and tenure track faculty even in cases where education, experience, qualifications, experience, and abilities are the same or greater.

    Lecturer in Ithaca, NY
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Cornell University for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - access to some of the most brilliant people you will ever work with - a dynamic intellectual environment - frequently in close proximity to any number of visiting scholars, entrepreneurs, artists and others doing evocative work.

    Cons

    - often myopic view of how far into society such privileged conversations actually flow. - true lack of understanding how intimately academia and industry need one another.

    Advice to Management

    Open an interdisciplinary site in major metropolitan areas (NYC, Philly, LA, Toronto, Montreal...etc.) where all disciplines are invited to spend time, workshop, create in studio spaces, collaborate and consider the larger implications of their work outside of the structured spatial experience of the academy.
