    Pros

    Benefits are good, insurance benefits are fantastic.

    Cons

    They are unwilling to hire people to fill openings so work just gets dumped on the ones left. Don't stay too long, or you'll probably lose your job. If you get hired, learn what you can while there and then leave. They don't care about the staff anymore. We are just cattle.

    Pros

    Emory University is one of the world's leading research universities. Its mission is to create, preserve, teach and apply knowledge in the service of humanity.

    Cons

    Emory's main campus is located in Druid Hills section of unincorporated DeKalb County, Georgia, a suburban community near Atlanta. Emory’s main campus is about a 15-minute drive from downtown and midtown Atlanta as well as the Buckhead area.


  9. Supportive, to a degree

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Emory University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Depending on your manager, there's an incredible degree of flexibility about structuring the working environment (working in office, from home, out of state). The University doesn't impose many restrictions

    Cons

    Modest annual salary increases, no maternity leave. I worked internationally and aside from evacuation insurance had no support in terms of securtiy.


  10. Depends on the School in question

    I worked at Emory University

    Pros

    I loved my coworkers and many of the faculty members- there were some lovely people. The benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Within my unit, there were no opportunities for advancement. And while the benefits were excellent, the salary was not competitive and did not include cost of living adjustments or meaningful raises over time. Be prepared to job hop if you want a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for advancement for staff.
