Cornell University Reviews
What is it like working at Cornell University?
Cornell's like a lot of Higher Ed - you get extra freedom, great technology, and the chance to work alongside really smart, thoughtful people. The pay isn't as good, but the benefits almost make up for it. You are never bored there, and politics are almost always navigable if you are a hard worker. The prestige factor of working at an Ivy League school is a plus. And the ice cream is the best - sometimes you even get it free!
