Working at Columbia University you must have the ability to multitask your work assignments. The management style there is pretty much, do what you have to do to get it done. You are pretty much allowed to manage your time. Prioritizing is key to your success at Columbia University.

I've never had an experience like this anywhere and I was very lucky to have been able experience and learn what I did in this special place. The hardest part of that job was leaving it.

Depends on the office.
Office Assistant/Receptionist (Current Employee), New York, NYJuly 30, 2015
You get a lot of different experiences here depending on who you are working with. If you get a good office that doesn't mean you will get good workers. BUT if you have a good higher staff that will be an easy fix.

Great tuition benefit
PROJECT MANAGER (Former Employee), New York, NYJuly 27, 2015
If you are going to attend school at Columbia the tuition benefit is great, considering how expensive tuition is. Salaries here are often below what you can get somewhere else but the flexibility made up for it in my opinion.

Associate Service Specialist (Former Employee), 612 West 115th StJuly 16, 2015
Working at Columbia University I.T. was a sweet and sour experience. I had the opportunity to meet great people, and also, to have hands-on practice with PBX and VoIP systems. The workload was the hardest part of the job, but at the same time, this is what motivated me and what I enjoyed the most. Management tries to keep up with all the technological needs for the institution.

Research Safety Specialist (Former Employee), NY, NYJuly 16, 2015
I enjoyed my time at Columbia. My colleagues were interesting and respectful, I had the freedom to create my own job activities as I saw fit, the benefits were superb. I did not appreciate an adminsitration that was very top heavy where employees could not provide positive feedback. There was a lot of micro management which ended up being resented.

I only work there a short time. I work in the lab clearing the glassware. I learn about acid wash and sterilization of glassware for research. I worked alone. The hardest part of the job there was not enough time for the amount of work I had to do. I had to work really fast, and make sure the job was done correct.
