    I have been working at Cornell University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I needed to find part-time work while I recovered from some medical issues and got hired in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Little did I know, it was like joining a family. Everyone I know really tries to give their best work and cares about the mission.

    Cons

    There's a lot of work because my team is small. I'm supposed to be part-time, but my background is really diverse and useful, so I get pulled in to finish/ fix projects that should've been completed by the full-timers. I'm also not allowed to work over time, so it can be stressful to do all the work in much less time than everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more full-time staff or reduce expectations.
