Front Desk Coordinator - Short-term/Casual (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 27, 2013
Columbia University is an awesome place to work, although I only do temporary work, I learn a lot from the students and staff, its always fun working with students of all ages, on a typical day I do office duties. the hardest part of the job is not coming in all the time.
Postdoctoral Researcher (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 18, 2017
there is not a good money situation in my group to provide material necessary for the job, there are not that many projects here and the group is based on single cell analysis method which doesn't have novelty. you will be under pressure if you make a single mistake and the time hours are not clear, the patient sample might arrive at 6 and it takes 5 hours to process the cancer tissue and prepare. you cant have regular life and timing for evening classes if you want to schedule.

My typical day at work would be monitoring and troubleshooting previous nights failed jobs. I would receive calls for restart or remedy fail jobs. In addition, I would handle special projects from my manager on a weekly basis.

Executive Assistant, Public Agenda (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 8, 2017
Columbia was a great place to work. Daily activity included involvement with government and community people, which led to a great deal of learning of how things operated in our City. Confirming meeting dates and times, even internal, was very difficult. Meeting so many interesting people.
I appreciated the interaction with people of many walks of life.
Associate Research Scientist (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 30, 2017
Working in an academic research lab at Columbia University has been a tremendous experience that has played an invaluable role in my development as a scientist. I was fortunate to find an amazing, collaborative, and diverse research group led by a principle investigator whose focus was on education.
Production Chef (Former Employee) – New York, NY 10027 – August 22, 2017
My 1st year was great my second year was terrible. responsible for ensuring all food production for an all you can eat (breakfast, lunch & dinner) cafeteria 6 days a week 12 hours a day, supervising a staff of approximately 50 union workers with a management team of 4 people including myself. April Of my 1st year of employment, senior management fired my director, leaving me to finish the school year as the senior manager of my unit with assistance from the assistant director. this was accomplished with few hiccups. my 2nd year I was teamed up with a new director and we were not in agreement on many managerial philosophies. he was senior to me and I was no longer enjoying the job as I had prior to his promotion. I decided to leave primarily due to our untenable relationship.
