    Pros

    Has good benefits, depending on the dept work/life balance can be good. Pay is very good but you have to live out of the area to afford housing which takes up the extra money.

    Cons

    Staff does not seem very motivated, they are happy to do just what is required of them and no more. Some managers need a lesson on how to manage most have no training. The University staff in general are not a happy lot, there have been lots of cut backs and most people feel over work and under appreciated. Very hard to advance, they like to tell you that you can move in the "bands" but people always want to know why you aren't applying for a band up if you want to move. HR is only fooling themselves if they think banding is working for staff.

    Cons

    Hated Ithaca, it's a really tiny town and very isolated. And it's cold 8 months out of the year.
