    Former Employee - Administrator in Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Administrator in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Morehouse School of Medicine full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Young inexperience workers can obtain work experience. Paid sick leave and vacation is adequate.

    Cons

    Nepotism. The organization is small and poorly managed. Family and friends are hired that are not qualified for the position and given top dollar salaries. Qualified workers are given the low-end salary and do not receive raises. No confidence in Sr. Management and the school is on the verge of losing accreditation. The school will probably not be around within the next 10 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring family and friends and hire qualified individuals who can manage the finances and raise money. Management should attempt to restore the confidence in the employees so the school can operate more effectively. Employees no longer care and it is evident in the quality of work produced and the manner in which vendors are treated.

    Former Employee - Program Manager in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Morehouse School of Medicine full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Technically astute staff who stay under the 'politics radar' can obtain a variety of skills and grow their career. Depending on the department you're in, travel (domestic and international) and professional development opportunities are plentiful. Health and wellness program (i.e., onsite gym, classes) is a huge perk and encouraged. Small campus allows for camaraderie and team building among faculty, staff, and students. Nurturing faculty and staff are committed and care deeply about the success of students.

    Cons

    History of lack luster fundraising efforts combined with federal sequestration (budget cuts) impedes progress and will eventually force the institution to close its doors, or, merge with one of Georgia's larger academic medical centers. Tolerance for nepotism at the executive level reinforces an unethical work environment. Extremely demanding workloads coupled with recent mass layoffs wreaks havoc on employee morale and threatens the quality of work performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Historical differences between academic health centers in Georgia re: racial imbalance of graduate health professional students is a thing of the past. Given the fact that Emory SOM, for example, graduates the majority of minority medical students and hires a substantial number of minority residents, it's time to have an open and honest dialogue about the feasibility of merging the two schools. Outside talent at the executive level is sorely needed to reinvigorate the overall direction of the institution in order to bring about sustainable and long term economic development to the school, AUC and surrounding community.
