I worked at Cornell University part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Pay is good, Cornell staff in general are very friendly, Cornell and Ithaca in general are beautiful.

Cons

Hours worked much higher than expected, little mentoring from faculty (though that is almost certainly department-specific), food on campus is too expensive for graduate students, Ithaca is far from...everything

Advice to Management

Improve work/life balance. Your graduate students are a very important resource - overworking them is problematic on many levels.
