- 4.0Aug 2, 2012Assistant Professor In the Life SciencesCurrent Employee, more than 3 yearsIthaca, NY
Reasonable decent salary for faculty, great benefits. The health insurance plan is superb and very affordable. Retirement benefits are quite good too, especially if you work for the statutory arm of the University where you get NY state retirement benefits.
The biggest con of this place is its isolated location surrounded by farms and small hamlets. The nearest biggest city is Syracuse at an hour away and NY City is 5 hours away. Philadelphia is 3 hours away. No truly big city is less than 3 hours from here. Rural location in the middle of no where can be a damper!

Flexability in hours and a lot of room to grow and learn
sometimes tedious work in a lab with no windows
