"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."

"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."

"A good place to learn new technology, not a place to stay long term, horrible upper management."

"CUIT is the biggest IT provider to the CU. They have excellent people working in all departments, Upper Management don't have a clue on what they doing, they hire outside help to let them know that they are doing a horrible job, fire people to show change. The CUIT org chart is a dying tree, instead of a pyramid of well staffed workers. You need to know the upper management in order to get a promotion and recognition... Negative place to stay long term, excellent place to learn new tech."

"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."
