"Large organization, so environment depends on the role, and department or office. Generally the University is a positive place for women and trans or gender expansive people in administrative officer/staff roles. Welcoming to LGBTQAI staff. For Faculty much varies by department. "

"I would ask very specific questions of the department you would be working in during the interview stage. Ask about culture, how they support employee work-life balance. The overall hours are not bad, but if you want a flexible work arrangement, it is not going to happen in the department I worked in."

"I work at the business school- and the culture tends towards throwing one another under the bus- and this seems particularity acute among women in the staff. The female faculty are more closely bonded, but have much more significant challenges to face because of their gender."

"This is a majority-female environment, so that can be good or bad, depending on how diverse you desire your company culture. Women are promoted as equally as men, however, it is expected that you are collaborative and congenial in order to receive recognition. It needs to be hard work with a smile in order to get ahead."

"I worked as a research assistant at Columbia Business School for a year. During this time, I worked on two different research projects under the guidance of three professors. I worked in a team setting with other research assistants and presented our findings during weekly meetings to the professors. It is a great opportunity for anyone looking to strength their research and presentation skills and get involved in publication of scholarly research. Hours are very flexible and everyone is very supportive and friendly. I had a great experience."
