I worked at Emory University full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Emory is filled with a diverse palate of wonderful people who really do good work for the university and in their lives. Of course there are "bastions of insanity" but there are also very good departments within the division of campus life and outside of it.

Cons

As much as Emory touted their belief in life/work balance, there are several managers who do not believe in that. Even working from home one day a week, or trying to work a compressed work schedule ( in a non busy season) was frowned up. That sort of inflexibility and an unwillingness to meet their needs of their employees is tough to take! While there are always a few positions that won't be able to share in such options, it would be nice if managers tried to fight for their employees needs and found ways to meet them halfway. This would boost morale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

While there are always a few positions that won't be able to share in work/life balance options, it would be nice if managers tried to fight for their employees needs and found ways to meet them halfway.- especially when these are the same people who work their tails off during the academic year! This would boost morale and make Emory a great place to work again.

    Pros

    Great institution name and state of the art everything.

    Cons

    Does not take care of its employees and instead spends all the incoming money from charities on expensive architecture while paying its employees peanuts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay your employees better.
