    I worked at Georgia Health Sciences University full-time for more than 5 years

    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.

    I have been working at Georgia Health Sciences University full-time for less than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work!

    Former Employee - Postdoctoral Fellow in Augusta, GA

    I worked at Georgia Health Sciences University full-time for less than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Get comfortable with the fact that you suck.

    Pros

    People are wonderful, but the mid-level academic/faculty nursing administration is atrocious.
