    Gratifying work without appropriate compensation

    Aug 17, 2022 - Teaching Assistant 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Working with Cornell students is an excellent experience; world-class facilities

    Cons

    Poor pay with administrators who care very little about the individuals working to fill vital roles in the university system. Largely viewed as dispensable/replaceable. As with other higher education institutions, the standard turnover of people every few years means there is very little incentive for the administration to improve conditions.
