Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 17, 2017
Excellent care for patients. Very busy work day, understaffed in the nursing department where I work - this is the hardest part of the day. Short lunch breaks or no lunch breaks, inconsistent management.Longer work hours than contracted in this department.

The Medical Campus is very different from Morningside Campus. They overwork you and expect you to work pass 5pm everyday. Senior Management bullies anyone outside of their inner circle. The department I worked in was so disorganized not to mention that they were in a deficit. There was no financial structure in place. The Senior Director had no interest in working with the finance team to implement a better financial process. The previous incumbent deleted all the electronic financial files because they left the department on bad terms. The Senior Director was of no resource to me. I had to contact people from outside departments to assist me with internal questions. My overall experience at the Medical Campus was horrible!! My only advice is; don't work in a department that is in a deficit. Also, beware of IDX reconciliation if your applying to a nonbiller position. To save money, some departments like the one I worked in will combine finance and accounting tasks into one position.
23 vacation days and unlimited sick and tuition benefits
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 9, 2017
Recommends I have been working at Columbia University full-time (More than 3 years) Pros -New York -Top place -Easy to find collaborations The postdoc experience mainly comes down to: did you correctly choose your PI. If you did not, it might be a living nightmare. If you did, like me, you spend a very great 4 years working on your ideas with a lot of support. Cons I read a comment about salary. Well, it is a postdoc, there is no such thing as "market" value. Postdocs salaries sucks everywhere but still higher here than many other places. But New York is more expensive than other places.
Clinical Research Coordinator (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 7, 2017
This is a productive workplace where having a grand understanding of clinical research coordination is greatly learned. Management can be improved and building a culture for staff, along with incentives to grow, can be better streamlined.
Clinical Coordinator (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 1, 2017
Very stressful surgical oncology unit. Time management is extremely important. A typical day starts at 8 and finishes at 6 and it is constant patient care. A day involves seeing new patients, followup patients, post operative patients and telephone triage.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 26, 2017
Restrictive environment with the opportunity to grow within the agency. The hardest part of the job is maintaining interdisciplinary communication. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the patients overcome their illness.
Job work/life is creative but does stale after a while
Accountant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 25, 2017
Columbia University Dental School is a wonderful place to work. Employees treat each other with kindest and respect. Management tries to be down to earth but somehow a feeling of working in a government office environment does set the mood.
working with many talented people, diversity of thought, positive attitudes
sometimes feels like working in government office, little room to advance
Clerk (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 21, 2017
The management style at CUMC is much different than prior workplaces I've been to. Working with all of these professors means you indirectly get treated like their students (less than them intellectually) and as such, face varying degrees of disrespect. It's a good place to work in terms on benefits, and putting Columbia Medical on your resume, but not a good place to build an entire career unless you're managing yourself.
Great place to work if you are motivated and ambitious
Nurse Practitioner (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 18, 2017
Working in a challenging environment with excellent co-workers. I learned a great deal about neurology and patient care Work started at 8 and stopped when you finished. Culture was to work tirelessly Hardest part of the job was keeping up with all the work. Best part was caring for patients and families and being a part of their life
