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

Pros

- Great team. It's important to gel with the team you sign on to as so much of your interaction will be with the team rather than the school as a whole
- Good work-life balance. The job does not require much commitment outside of working hours (9-5 generally)

Cons

- Promotions are limited to the department. Any job transitions outside of the department will be treated as a general hire.
- You need to be self motivated to not be discouraged by the sometimes indifferent employees.

Advice to Management

It's a hard job to manage so many independent departments. There's not much company culture, although there is a good deal of company morale generated from the company's academic prestige.

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

    Pros

    Very flexible hours, especially for casual employees. Great pay. Fun, rewarding work. I would highly recommend this employer for any techs seeking work either part time or full time.

    The summer months are kind of dry. There's alot going on during the school year, but there is very little work between May and September.
