"I've worked at Cornell for 5 years. The glass ceiling is about 10 meters thick, don't even bother applying for a professional staff job unless you have a Ph.D. It's the only big employer in town and they use that to their advantage to offer below-market wages."

Graduate Teaching Assistant

"I worked as Graduate Teaching Assistant for the course "Introduction to Electronic Circuits" for the spring 2019 semester. The instructors were Prof. Clifford R Pollock and Prof. Khurram Khan Afridi. Both were really nice to all the Teaching Assistants ( there were 8 in the team) and jobs were delegated properly. Exams were graded within a day every time which ensured that no work was left pending for long."
