    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Georgia Health Sciences University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent compensation packages, especially if you take advantage of the maximum 401K
    Fairly easy lateral movement

    Cons

    Monumental challenges with communication within the institution
    Trending toward greater usage of consultants from outside the institution to develop a miraculous cure for the ingrained political and institutional problems which need to be addressed from the inside out
    VERY limited potential for upward mobility within the institution. They tend to hire from the outside for higher level positions from the manager to VP level. Been with the institution 15 years and less than 50% of the VP level positions have been refilled from within the current ranks for the areas I have been involved in. Recently, as an illustration, solidly capable and proven managers have been over-passed for jobs which were eventually given to outside candidates. It is obvious that "we do not take care of our own."

    Not good place to do science.

    I have been working at Georgia Health Sciences University

    Pros

    It's in a small city, which is beautiful. Most labs don't have so much pressure, people can enjoy life. But, my lab is different. So, everything is dependent on your boss.

    Cons

    Small place, small college, no so much opportunities. The general level of people working here is not very high. I don't think it's a good place to do science. If you are looking for a postdoc position, don't come.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to foreign science works.
