Former Employee - Graduate Student/Teaching Assistant in Ithaca, NY

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

Pros

Generous in allowing me 4 years of leave time, pay for a physics grad student much higher than most universities, has community activities like the winter party where the first years put on skits.

Cons

Professors are very distant in classroom setting, I wanted to do a research project that was in another field with a physics professor but couldn't.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Cornell University part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was a lot of fun to interact with intelligent and inquisitive students. Always enjoyed the challenge of presenting new ideas and concepts to students.

    Cons

    Prep work, grading, meetings take up a lot of time - perhaps more hires will make this process easier. Also, it would help to get more specialized graders so that teaching assistants can concentrate on best presenting the material.
