Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant  in  Ithaca, NY (US)
Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Ithaca, NY (US)

Pros

Graduate student stipend and benefits afford good lifestyle in Ithaca. High quality researchers and labs available. World class libraries and subscriptions to journals and services.

Cons

Very poor career development resources overall, especially for Ph.D. students seeking non-academic career tracks. Remote location makes travel for research or other purposes difficult.

    Former Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Ithaca, NY (US)

    Pros

    Great please to spend several years of your life. Access to great facilities, libraries. Fun town, campus.

    Cons

    Like many universities, Cornell needs to figure out what to do with its PhD. It can't keep training them for lives with academia. Better career development is necessary. More resources to facilitate efficient and rapid completion of dissertation and degree requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to think big and take leadership in the changing role of higher education.
