    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Main game in town, so they dramatically underpay support staff

    Cons

    Management at all levels is incompetent but it doesn't matter because in the long run the rep of the school continues to draw in students and donations. Very political.

    Advice to Management

    stop being so snobbish

    I worked at Cornell University (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great please to spend several years of your life. Access to great facilities, libraries. Fun town, campus.

    Cons

    Like many universities, Cornell needs to figure out what to do with its PhD. It can't keep training them for lives with academia. Better career development is necessary. More resources to facilitate efficient and rapid completion of dissertation and degree requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Need to think big and take leadership in the changing role of higher education.
