Client Solutions Specialist (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 9, 2014
The academia world is one I've enjoyed the most in my career. However, with that benefit comes the downside of staying current on technologies and competitive compensation. The most challenging part of my job is clarity of my job duties, fluidity among various departments and consistency from management. The perks of working here are flexible work schedules and a dress down attire culture.
Pros
Casual culture
Cons
Low market compensation

A great place to work
Program Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Washington Heights, NYDecember 13, 2017
Columbia University is a great place to work, depending on your role and location within the University. The benefits of working here are the benefits that Officers receive: full medical and dental and a very generous PTO program. Additionally, employees are afforded the opportunity to move between departments and schools.

I would recommend anyone to work at CU.
