    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Columbia University full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, great pay compared to other private schools, laid back atmosphere

    Cons

    of course this depends on the department, but hiring is slow and the opportunity to move up or around is almost non existent. Again, depends on the department.


  2. "Treatment of non-PhD staff is horrific."

    I worked at Columbia University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of vacation and benefits.

    Non-PhD staff are underpaid and treated like half-wits regardless of non-academia experience.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting the budget for communications staff.
