    I worked at University of Minnesota part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great experience. Gain exposure to many different research techniques and areas of research. Post-docs are very helpful, knowledgeable and approachable.

    Cons

    If you do not live on or near campus, commuting can be a hassle. Even if you live on campus, the commuting during weekends can be a annoying since you often have to wait a long time for the bus. Often to get your foot in the door, you have to willing to perform tedious tasks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to expose researchers to new techniques

    Current Employee - Senior Patient Representative in Minneapolis, MN

    I have been working at University of Minnesota full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    *Fair pay for your first year of employment

    Cons

    *Not a lot of opportunity for professional growth
    *Horrible benefits
    *After your first two years of employment the pay scale is inadequate
    *Corporate philosophy does not seem to keep employees in mind (with the exception of the Physician staff).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *If you don't provide employees with incentive to stay with the company you will continue to have a high turn over rate and the need for a workers union will never go away. The incredibly low cost of living increases and ridiculous criteria for merit raises (when applicable) give this company one of the lower standards in health care employment. The employee insurance plan could be better as well.
