    I have been working at Medical University of South Carolina full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    All of the employees are nice people (generally), and are empathetic to family issues and personal issues. The pace is fairly slow and deliberate (good and bad I guess).

    Cons

    Compensation is low for non-clinical technical positions, and does not meet the industry standard. Decision-making is highly abstract given the matrix structure that is employed. Every decision requires a meeting it seems and meeting seem the go to method to resolve an issue, regardless of the importance of the issue. Meeting for the sake of meeting it seems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Medical University of South Carolina full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    State Benefits and Job Security are pretty good compared to the private sector. The interactivity with students can be fun and I've had opportunities to excel within my field.

    Cons

    Its an academic setting so there is little to no support for staff. Its a Faculty/Student centric environment and extremely political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The State of South Carolina has its own employment guidelines that you must follow. Nothing out of the ordinary. Compensation is average except for the top 1%. All state salaries above 50k are online. A simple web search will give you a wealth of information.

    Pros

    Retirement and health insurance is awesome!

    Cons

    The new grad residency program did not help me in adjusting to the role of an RN, this time could have been better spent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revise the new grad residency program.

    Pros

    One of the best hospital systems that I have worked for. They place importance on patient safety. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Like most companies today, started consolidating jobs and placing more work with less employees. Near impossible to move up unless you "know" someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give advancement to employees that prove their worth.

    Pros

    MUSC invests in their employees and is a strong presence in the Charleston community. State benefits are very solid and supervisors tend to be supportive of their staff.

    Cons

    Perhaps because the city of Charleston is such a strong draw to potential faculty and staff, we do not offer competitive salaries compared to other academic medical centers around the country. Even compared to private companies in the area, we lag in compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in training your employees to build loyalty so when salaries are not competitive, good people will stay because they believe in the institution.
