"Columbia University is a great place to work. Lots of good science/research going on and great infrastructure. The only caveat is the salary."

"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."

"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."

"Columbia is a very big place, run in a very fragmented, feudalistic way. Very hit-or-miss, depending on your individual departmental situation. Many managers are dead weight, holding on for retirement, blocking any possible advancement. In a corporate environment they'd be fired. Work here for a while if you're feeling lazy, then get back to the real world when you feel like having a career again."
