    Pros

    Working for the Graduate School of Medicine at UTMC has been a wonderful experience! This position has taught me how to be responsible - since someone isn't standing over me telling me what to do. Nothing feels better when you get to pat yourself on the back for completing a task with no guidance. This job has given me numerous opportunities... I'm very blessed!

    Cons

    The Graduate School offers to pay for tuition at Tennessee colleges (university and community) - the only problem is some departments let you work different schedules to attend class while others do not!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good job!
