    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Columbia University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Being a university, there is a lot of freedom to pursue research interests applied to real-world issues in developing countries. Depending on the project, there is also opportunity for travel to remote parts of the world.

    Cons

    The community is vulnerable to high turnover caused by a combination of low pay and lack of investment in career development and opportunities for full-time staff.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in retaining staff.
