Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Ithaca, NY (US)

I have been working at Cornell University full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Graduate student stipend and benefits afford good lifestyle in Ithaca. High quality researchers and labs available. World class libraries and subscriptions to journals and services.

Cons

Very poor career development resources overall, especially for Ph.D. students seeking non-academic career tracks. Remote location makes travel for research or other purposes difficult.

    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Ithaca, NY (US)

    I worked at Cornell University full-time for 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.
