Pros

It is a famous academic institution with great faculty members. We have a great deal of resources available to do research and job search.

Cons

The study here is quite stressful. Course work is very intense. And I also need to do research or TA duties aside that.

Advice to Management

If they could really provide more support for students that are under extraordinary pressure instead of just putting fence on the bridge.

    Pros

    Among the top engineering schools in the country, Cornell as a member of the Ivy League is a place where the University mission does not sacrifice any of the major pillars of a world-class university: (1) -all- areas of study are important to the University's mission; (2) high-quality research -and- teaching (both grad and undergrad) are both important to the University's mission.

    Salary and benefits are very good, especially considering the cost of living.

    Cons

    Location a bit remote from major cities. Health care substandard (ironically, Cornell is a medicine powerhouse in NYC). State, property, and school taxes are steep.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier for Ithaca employees to use New York Presbyterian/HSS/Sloan-Kettering facilities in terms of insurance, discounted lodging for short-term medical-related NYC stays, etc. That some Cornell doctors won't take Cornell insurance is unacceptable.
