"Started in 2011, ended in 2014 as a result, of all things, from being promoted. Did my job to the best of my abilities and found the clientele a joy to deal with and interact. This plus being accepted by some of my colleagues and a good number of my coworkers, made the transition from tech to lead very rewarding. But, with all good things, there was bad. I'll just label it, the Dean's office! It was the place where you just had to tip toe through, well, everything! The admin manager, she is, was, is the real issue. Doesn't help when you promote a culture like the one she promoted. Just not healthy. That said, would do it EXACTLY the same way again, being that I really did get a lot done!"
"I worked for C.U. College of Dental Medicine on temporary assignment. But during that time I found it to be a strong company with good ethical values and a emphasis on patient care."
"I have worked for CUMC since Mar 2011. It has been a great experience. I have been given opportunities to lead my own projects and helpful feedback on performance. It is a great environment to learn and practice your abilities. I would recommend it a good starting place if you are looking to work in the areas of medicine, engineering or psychology."
"Awesome company to work for."
"Columbia University is a great place to work. Lots of good science/research going on and great infrastructure. The only caveat is the salary."
"Being a student employee at UDC for more than 3 years has nurtured my career and also prepared me for future career goals."
"Been at Columbia for 6 years."
"Columbia University is very well known, not much more I can add. The Dept. of Systems Biology is great and we are doing great things"
"I have been working at the Columbia University (CU) for 12 years. CU is one of the eight of the American Universities belonging to Ivy League."
"I suspect the company has a very positive corporate culture that did not seem to filter into the admissions department. This department, filled with caring, educated professionals, was sadly, in my opinion, working with a micro-management mentality that exhibited a controlling and disrespectful attitude toward employees."
"In my opinion, over controlling micro-management toward education, professionals but may have been department rather than company. Saying yes to company CEO recommendation in light of insight only with departmental experience. Left before I could have a fulfilling professional experience."
"A good place to learn new technology, not a place to stay long term, horrible upper management."
"I've been working for Columbia University for 2 years. It is very bureaucratic, which makes it difficult to do my job sometimes. The workplace is awful - old, dirty, terrible building employees that I have to work with."
"Great environment, great coworkers and job!"
