    I have been working at Emory Healthcare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Emory is unique in that it is very concerned with replacing employees within the system when business requirements force a reduction in staff. Emory attempts to place employees elsewhere in the organization. Emory also tries not to layoff employees before other avenues are explored. Jobs are very secure.

    Cons

    Lack of upward movement with in the company. Few opportunities exist and development of employees is a clear weakness. Many managers do not recognize their employees work. They instead claim the output for themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more bold in the market, look for opportunities to the organization flatter and more collaborative.

    -Emory is a very large slow moving organization. It was difficult to complete any meaningful work in such a short period of time but that is the nature of doing an internship.

    I worked at Emory Healthcare as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very nice people who were working at an extremely tough deadline. Willing to help each other any time.

    Cons

    Not too much variety for learning but there is nothing really too negative. Everything was simple and easy to pick up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add more variety to amount/style of work

    I have been working at Emory Healthcare

    Pros

    Strong belief in the medical care provided to patients. Doctors are extremely competent and care about their work. The benefits are pretty decent.

    Cons

    Majority of all employees are over worked! There aren't enough employees to get the work done so everyone is ALWAYS running around crazy to get things done. The culture itself is dysfunctional. Emory Healthcare as a whole doesn't believe in flex work schedules so working from home, working 4 10-hour days, etc aren't options. The PTO system is the worse of all times. All Holidays and sick days have to come out of the bank of 26 days. It's ridiculous! Don't get sick or your child get sick. If you have no PTO days you won't get paid for the holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people. Conducting business in this manor causes too many inefficiencies. Change the PTO policy.

    Pros

    Friendly team members, flexisble hours

    Cons

    Poor pay per hour and salary... Management sucks and don't have one clue about the job they are hired to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire within for management positions, they have knowledge and experience to do the JOB.. People on the outside have no knowledge and minimal experience. Just because they hold and flash a degree around doesn't mean they are qualified to do the JOB ... Wake up EMORY HEALTHCARE

    I worked at Emory Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved the people I worked with, benefits were excellent and they emphasized the company values and processes. I like that Emory is so organized and the opportunities for advancement are many.

    Cons

    I felt my management team was not supportive of my position. I found it very difficult to do as much as I could for our patients. I will note that more staff was added after I resigned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more of a checks and balances for mid management. Don't assume supervisors and department managers are working the hours they claim or doing the work they say they do.

    I worked at Emory Healthcare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working Monday-Friday. Health Benefits and vacation time are good. Lots of eateries to pick from during breaks. Beautiful campus. Clinics close after 5:30.

    Cons

    Poor management. A lot of helicopter managers that don't trust their employees to do their job.in bad weather, management makes you stay after state of emergency has been implemented. Standing all day long when chairs are provided for seating. Constant change in job description. No stability. Very low pay compared to other hospitals. A lot of drama up keeping. Big company but hard to grow. Parking at a garage and having to ride a shuttle to your work station.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees enough to do their job.
    Don't hover around your employees constantly.
    Try some incentives instead of constantly trying to change what already works. Talk to your employees and treat them respectfully.
