Pros

As a regular staff (not faculty, not medical professionals), working for the college gives you all the perks of working for an academic institution. In general, the working environment is relaxed. Most of your work days are not intense. You do not have too many deadlines to catch. You can pretty much work with your own pace as long as you complete all you assigned task to the managers satisfaction. Health insurance plan is decent, you get to pay very little copay.

Cons

The whole college evolves around physicians. As such, the college does not provide much career advancement opportunities for regular staffs. Even you get above average job performance review, you are not promoted unless there is 'quota'/budget available. Physicians can take any classes offered by the college for free without any approval from any one, yet the same benefit are not offered to staff.
Don't expect much about your salary or employee benefits other than the health insurance. In the median to low range of the market.

    Some of the basic science labs are outdated, although many newer buildings have state-of-the-art labs.

    Pros

    Experience in all aspects of Medicine. From research to Teaching Physicians and their Residents.

    Cons

    The walk from parking lot to my office takes 7 minutes. It's actually a pro if the weather is nice. We all need our exercise!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize what outstanding employees you have. Not a generic message to all employees, but a personal thank you to one person or group.
