    Great campus but...

    Research Associate (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsUniversity provides great educational benefits

    ConsPostdocs get paid very little and have little support and mentorship to move towards professorship.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProfessors should spend time mentoring postdocs and helping them get published! many only care about getting their own grants and about their own career progress.

    Decent company for short term work--cannot build a career here.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat families and kids. Parents very appreciative. You can build lasting relationships

    ConsOverworked and underpaid. Some practices border on employee abuse.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your middle managers! Fix your serious retention problem so you're not constantly training new people.

    Smoking Mirrors..

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsLocated in great part of Atlanta. Strong brand locally, nationally and globally.

    ConsMircomanagement environment. Like to 'fire people for fun' because people have way too much time on their hands and spend time harassing and picking on others during the course of the work day. Department operate in silos and office politics are alive and well. Emory still has that 'good ole boy' mentality operating in management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice because they don't listen when you do and begin to see you as a threat suggesting change.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It is behind on the times

    Clinical Molecular Genetics Technologist II (Current Employee)
    Decatur, GA

    ProsFlexible work environment and the people try to be nice.

    ConsOut dated everything. Including how people think!

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at how other Clinical Labs are working and take some steps to keep up instead of making your employees work with under-par equipment and protocols.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Stay away from the clinical trials office

    Clinical Research Coordinator III (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsThe CTO manages to recruit outstanding personnel but the overall hostile and chaotic environment lead to high employee turnover.

    ConsExtremely heavy workload, little to no support for upper management, too many systems, little cooperation among departments, and non competitive salaries.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDecrease work load for CRCs/ CRNs and increase salaries. Provide administrative support for working groups.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
