Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Columbia University full-time (More than a year)

Pros

* Vacation time is great
* Healthcare benefits are good
* Relaxed environment
* No Stress
* No Pressures

Cons

* You're basically going nowhere
* HR keeps changing benefits w/out notification
  --Tuition benefit has changed 5 times in the ONE year I've been ehre
* NO movement whatsoever
* Compensation SUCKS and they use "The Economy" as an excuse

Advice to Management

You have the resources to provide. If you want to keep talent, tuition incentives are a BIG deal.

    I worked at Columbia University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were top notch. I had a fantastic boss at the Mailman School of Public Health. I enjoyed working with people around the school and being around so many great minds.

    Cons

    Out of control bureaucracy, it took FOREVER to get anything done. Plus, when you went to Finance for help, there are so many rules they would call you back at least half a dozen times on each project, " Oh, and we didn't know this, but you're going to need this as well." Pure madness to accomplish anything.

    Advice to Management

    Fix Finance.
