    I worked at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine

    Pros

    Work force is diverse, open-minded and welcoming. Coworkers are very friendly and helpful. Working conditions are excellent - clean, comfortable, well-lit. Focus on health is positive and refreshing.

    Cons

    Not all employees are offered the benefit of free use of Medical Fitness & Wellness Center. High standards make hiring selective.

    Brutal Place To Work

    I worked at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very clean nice facilities. Pretty reasonable paid time off schedule and generous contributions to your retirement fund. They pay the employees insurance premium.

    Cons

    The work atmosphere is brutal. You are likely to be stabbed in the back and thrown under the bus by others looking to avoid the wrath of upper management. The schools is an autocracy, and the rules change from day to day depending on managements' mood. The pay is sub par compared to comparable jobs in the area. Micromanagement is rampant, even something as simple as purchasing dry erase markers has to be sign off on from the top. Turn over is high and morale is incredibly low. Department leaders are often pitted against each other in manufactured conflicts and crisis that upper management can then "solve". Technology is lagging behind, often in a state of disrepair, and most departments run on skeleton crews despite the incredibly high profit margin. You are likely to be bullied by a manger who fears his or her own bullying from above.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider contacting a consultant to redesign your entire management structure and methodologies.
    To the board I would say you're being duped. If you had any idea what it was really like in there I would hope you would make changes. Sadly this will likely fall on deaf ears.

    Where employees are the Provost's sycophants.

    Pros

    You can be married to a fellow employees, which almost everyone is, but quitting will destroy your spouses career also.
    No restriction against reporting to your own husband.

    Cons

    Pay is considerably lower than market rate for similar job.
    The entire environment is ruled by one mercurial woman, and every decision made to appease her rather than to improve the educational mission.
    Employees and students hostage to mood swings and belittling tirades.
    Ridiculous, out of date dress code.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Publish your salaries. Let's see a full accounting for the tuition in this "non-Profit" proprietary school.

    Pros

    good and hard working, I really like to work with Lecom. This is one of the good opportunity to work there

    Cons

    Lecom stays at the urban area. People are very friendly and nice. I don't want to work at the rural area.

    I have been working at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine

    Pros

    Faculty are helpful for the most part.
    Like the students for the most part.
    Staff are helpful for the most part.
    Climate is nice when it's not snowing.
    You don't have to spend too much for a house (so don't, you might want to leave)

    Cons

    Draconian contracts - "whole time" is basically indentured servitude.
    Largely incompetent administration and board of directors.
    Silly regulations routinely promulgated by the dean whenever the whim hits her.
    Expect to get hollered at and treated like a child by the administration
    If you want to protest, the faculty are behind you --- way behind you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I strongly suggest that each of you resign for the betterment of the institution. This would make way for a competent administration who would do a better job than you.

    Regular raises.

    Cons

    Pay is relatively low compared to other postions of the same type.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Policies sometimes lack real consideration for employees and students alike. Pay your employees what they deserve!
