I have been working at Cornell University full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Extremely collegial - lots of chances to gain mentorship experience
Motivated workforce - if you are interested in working hard, you will not be alone
Excellent campus - Ithaca is one of the best college campuses in USA. It has continually been voted the best college town, two years in a row

Cons

Winter - Extremely long and cold - but if you survive the first one you will get through the next 3 or 4. Also you will realize how much weather effects our professional psyche
Location - While it has an amazing campus, its still far away from big cities and therefore attending professional events is a slight challenge.

Advice to Management

Make the environment more comfortable for research scientists, invite more industrial recruiting seminars, encourage participation in professional conferences by providing grants etc.

    Have had my ups and downs with management, but overall a respectful and professional place.

    Most processes are antiquated, and change has yet to come. Some departments still work in a mode that does not realize the student comes first. A new direction is needed.
