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

Pros

raise cute foals
physically active
no need to dress nicely for work
around (mostly healthy) animals all day
supervisor MADE us take breaks

Cons

certain longtime employees constantly verbally abusive, management does nothing about it
required to complete online training on various methods of euthanasia
barns lack temperature control
constantly cleaning up mistakes made by students from the vet school

Advice to Management

Do not tolerate workplace bullying. Many employees were purposefully nasty to anyone newer than them even after months or years of working together and created a hostile workplace environment.

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

    Pros

    There are a few bright minds there

    Cons

    A lot of politics, some PI's are less competent than some undergraduates. PI's who don't know some of the basic properties of RNA or DNA, don't know what is going on in their lab, and don't know details of their own publications.

    Deals are made between PI's to cover each other's backs and get promotions. Dean's making illogical decisions about the program in general. Over spending on empty buildings and then cutting back on resources.

    Advice to Management

    Major overhaul
