    Pros

    Wonderful people and great hospital! Only worked from 8-5 so the hours were ideal.

    Cons

    The pay was not comparable to other hospitals for this position.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees for advice and be more people oriented.

    Pros

    Worked with some wonderful people.

    Cons

    President is only out for himself. No raise in over 3 years and budget cuts were to blame, but higher administration got huge raises to add to their inflated salaries.

    Pros

    I have nothing nice to say about this place. It is terrible in all respects.

    Cons

    Town smells like fecal matter... Probably because of the large open-pit sewage processing plant in downtown Augusta (to the South). Watch out for that northward wind.

    Advice to Management

    Go screw yourself.

    Pros

    Flexibility, benefits and wonderful faculty to work along side - I had one of the best bosses ever while I worked there. Lot's of continued learning opportunities

    Cons

    Not a lot of cons - maybe they hold on to some employees too long. Make sure you have your parking permit or you will get tickets!

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work!

    Pros

    I can't think of anything good to say about it.

    Cons

    There is nothing good about this university. It is a jobs program for an impoverished region of the country. There is an open-air sewage treatment plant about 10 miles South of downtown (where Augusta is). It is immediately adjacent to a paper factory and a soap factory. The environment is totally destroyed. When the wind blows northward, the stench is unbearable.

    Advice to Management

    Get comfortable with the fact that you suck.

    Large Healthcare system with robust information system. Good work life balance. Compensation very good.

    Lack of organization. No room for growth in the corporate structure. No accountability to upper management/physicians. No accountability for staff in general.

    Advice to Management

    Add 360 reviews to encourage accountability.

    Pros

    They are trying to implement changes that will help the campus be cohesive and share goals that will help the university grow.

    Cons

    Most positions top out in terms of growth. Many people have been held in positions rather than allowed to move on because their supervisors don't want to have to train a new person. In order to get a pay increase you have to change jobs and usually move to a new department - if they let you.

    Advice to Management

    During the decline of the Medical College of Georgia, many unethical and poorly qualified individuals were placed in management positions. They need to be weeded out for change to occur properly.

    Pros

    Georgia Health Science University Health System is amidst change and growth. Working in this type of an environment is very conducive to professional and personal growth. It is also a great opportunity for those who are motivated to leave their own mark on the healthcare industry.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides of working at Georgia Health Science University University Health System is that is it is easy to get lost in such a large organization. One must be assertive and make an effort to be part of the great advances taking place. Also, this type of an environment is a very competitive environment in which to seek advancement.
