    I worked at Cornell University full-time

    Pros

    Fantastic atmosphere, and easy to collaborate with other scientists. Ithaca is a great place to live and work. The work-life balance is easier to maintain here than other places.

    Cons

    A few late nights, and some communication issues with other departments. While most times expectations were laid out explicitly, the times when they were not made subsequent corrections tougher to implement.

    Advice to Management

    Really none, they made it easy to get things done. There was alot of support for all research personnel. There should be more programs to guide professional students interested in diverse career paths.

    I worked at Cornell University full-time

    Pros

    lots of resources on campus, can find great supportive people

    Cons

    occasionally have to work with people who don't even try to do their job (i.e. they don't return calls, don't prepare for presentations/ workshops, continue to make excuses and not actually do work).

    Advice to Management

    management should review employee performance
