Senior Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 11, 2019
I've been employed at Columbia U. for 13 years. I love the young energy of college grounds. A typical day at the office can begin slowly and turn fast-paced in a minute. I've learned to be flexible and to juggle tasks very well. Management is fine, and my department's friendly culture is a plus. Benefits are great but the salary isn't as good as from the private sector.
The hardest part of the job is having to perform a task that someone else doesn't want to do, and I find this is a waste of productive time for me. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with wonderful staff members who understand what I do and appreciate my contributions.
Assistant Watch Engineer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 6, 2019
My time in faclites was grand. I came in as an A Mechanic in the HVAC shop and preformed well enough to be promoted to Assistant Watch Engineer very quickly. This caused much disturbance between my co-workers and I. They disagreed with mangement's decsion. As time progressed and mangement changed I began to have disagreement 's with my supervisor over trival matters. With dwindling support from the union and supervisors looking to make my co-workers happy with my dismissel, the inevitable occured my dismissel on the grounds of misconduct. No violence or failure in job duties, simple misconduct. That and I failed to pay bribes to both unioun members and mangement. Left me looking for greener pastures. Oh well sah la vi la vi. I was there and I crushed it while I was there
Accounts Receivable Specialist Coordinator (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 3, 2019
It was great while it lasted but if you are brown nosing you will get a head. Hard workers tend to be over looked and over worked. I wish Columbia would take the time to appreciate their employees. Have managers take courses and learn how to treat the follow man. It isn't hard to show someone they have been doing a great job. More negatives than positives at this point. Union won't get you any where and being an Officer is tricky,
Columbia University is an excellent place to work.
