    Pros

    Flexible scheduling. Good benefits. Great environment. The overall nature of Cornell University is a leading academic institution that is a challenging and beneficial place to work.

    Cons

    Select aspects of technology seem to lag behind at the Ithaca campus. As an academic institution, can also be highly bureaucratic.

    I have been working at Cornell University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Cornell University is an amazing research university with leading professors, schools and programs, research institutes. The school has been going through a growth trajectory in its facilities and programs as a result of large grants from donors and alumni. Compensation is good for the Ivy Leagues. The campus is gorgeous in late Spring, Summer, and Fall.

    Cons

    One of the largest challenges of working at Cornell's main campus in Ithaca is that it is very removed from the rest of the state and broader intellectual communities in Boston, NYC, and the mid-Atlantic. The university has difficulty bringing in the very best young talent because it takes a large commitment to move to upstate New York and raise a family.

    I have been working at Cornell University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A charming campus with amazingly, beautiful pastoral countryside. A trail runners dream come true! Cornell has a close community of friendly people. A lot of cultural development and much exposure to potential jobs, and important role models. Attend seminars and talks by important people to broaden your outlook on life. The benefits are good.

    Cons

    Ithaca is a small town and often not suited to those individuals who need a busy city life. Its a tough, competitive life if you study here and be prepared to deal with some professors who are not there to help you but are there to have you do their work.
