Pros

It's a beautiful campus with many, many highly motivated and intelligent people to work with. Opportunities to meet and interact with so many great colleagues.

Cons

It's a very intense place if you're a postdoc. Numerous postdocs I know suffer from stress and subsequent health issues. This isn't a place to work if you'd like to come in 9-5

    Pros

    Many openings, competitive salary on a 40-hr work week basis (see below)

    Cons

    A part of the group within Hospital IT is being subjected to verbally (not written) continuous 24/7 work schedule for weeks on end on rotation for exempt employees. Overseas staff covering overnight support work is being let go and their support (non-exempt) work is being added to exempt staff as a cost-cutting measure resulting in 24/7 work hours on weekdays, weekends and holidays with *no* overtime compensation or comp time or regard for employees' health or wellness. Requests to redress this situation have been ignored by management and HR denies this to be the policy. No written document has been officially circulated and this policy is being enforced verbally (and currently followed). No HR or Senior Management oversight.

    Advice to Management

    Advertise this oppressive policy as a part of the job description, during interviews and on company website as a 'perk' for employees.
