Compensation and benefits are great but the high-stress and poor management complied with lack of advancement leave much to be desired.
Coordinator (Former Employee) – Morningside Heights, NY – July 20, 2018
The compensation and benefits are on the better end of the spectrum (by better I mean actually meeting industry standards). The amount of stress you must face on a daily basis due the incompetence of the managerial and human reasource staff is second to none. If you have a moral compass and an excellent work ethic, don’t expect to be employed with Columbia for long. Those who stand above the rest with an exceptional work ethic, skills, and a genuine will to progress towards goals will be targeted. The existing long term staff will feel threatened by you (as they do the minimum needed to keep their job) and will do anything in their power to falsify reports and create false claims against you. With verifiable proofs to disprove all claims against you, you are still highly likely to be terminated in order to make the supervisory staff look as if they had full justification in doing so. Thus perpetuating a corrupt system for many years to come. It’s a cut-throat one hand washes the other hand type of environment between the long term staff, as they are always looking for ways to spin a situation in their favor while using speculation instead of factual evidence. The employment oppurtunity at any Columbia University site is similar and has an extremely high turn over rate and should only be considered to boost your resume experience as a platform to reach better more stable employment, don’t expect to make a career with them unless you are without a moral compass and don’t mind ruining the livelihood of other employees to secure your seat on that roller coaster.
