I worked at Medical University of South Carolina full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Plenty of opportunity for collaboration. Strong Immunology/Neuroscience faculty.

Cons

Early in my career, management of department as a whole was poor. As I was leaving that was improved. Stipend is a bit lower than other PhD programs (though it was sufficient to live on in Charleston).

    I have been working at Medical University of South Carolina full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The retirement benefits are great. PTO is ok but they don't pay employees if they're out because of bad weather, which is crazy.

    Cons

    There's room for growth if you know the right people. It's definitely about who you know. A lot of bad managers. Budget problems are making it all about the money and not about employee satisfaction unless it's the doctors. Because people are afraid to fail, there's a lot of throwing people under the bus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the double levels of management, get rid of the people who've been in positions too long doing nothing. Develop training and hiring from within.
