"Play everything close to your vest, be discreet. These people are not your friends. They are colleagues and when push comes to shove, they will throw you under the bus. The key to advancement is to be shrewd and play their game. "

"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. "

"The organization is so big but satisfaction will be determined by the individual department that you work at which can feel like a small organization in and of itself that happens to be attached to a larger one. "

"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."

"Great place especially if you'd like to continue your education. "
"Received some sexist feedback and found the men in this department did not treat women with respect."
"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."
"It is very difficult to advance within your department."
"Not a lot of opportunity to grow"
"Women are definitely treated fairly in my field and given opportunities to advance. There is flexibility in the culture but not as much as one would hope (in theory some functions can work from home but its not looked upon highly)."
"There are a lot of women in senior leadership, with and without children. That helps get some flexibility."
"varied. Opportunity for independent thinking and initiative development. Colleagues tremendous. Communication poor, generally"
"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."
