    I worked at Cornell University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Access to cutting-edge equipment and the opportunity to work with extremely talented people in a wide range of scientific, business, and artistic fields.

    Cons

    As a graduate student, I experienced horrid management by professors: employee infighting was encouraged, falsified data was pushed for publication, emotionally volatile/immature bosses were the norm. There was a lack of clear goals for every professor I worked with and unpaid overtime was the norm. We were promised jobs only if we did everything they said and constantly threatened if we stepped out of line or questioned a boss' decision. I saw the news of Title 9 inquires and student suicides surpressed and/or erased from public record. Cornell illegally funded opposition to a graduate student union and falsified votes. Be very careful when considering this school, they have many problems that are common in academia but unlike other schools I've worked in they don't seem to be interested in changing the status quo.
