    I have been working at Morehouse School of Medicine (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a great place to start your career and build skills. There has been a few changes for the better such has 2 or 3% pay increase but it still does not measure up to industry standards.

    Cons

    Low pay, No Tuition Assistance, Cafeteria food is terrible, Silos exist, and employees have low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they are worth.

    Pros

    Great place to work . I love traveling recruiting and marketing campaigns.

    Cons

    Exempt employees should not clock in and out . This system was implemented 4 years ago that employees have to clock in an out.

    I have been working at Morehouse School of Medicine full-time

    Pros

    I honestly cannot think of one pro besides I guess it pays the bills (for the most part)

    Cons

    Poor leadership, low employee morale, high turnover rate, benefits are not competitive, salaries are not competitive, lack of incentives

    Advice to Management

    New leadership does not seem to value her employees and staff. Morale needs to be something to work on because your employees will not give you their best if you treat them poorly. There's enough $ for major renovations in leadership office to be done, but you have not given your employees an annual raise in over 5 years!

    I worked at Morehouse School of Medicine (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and a good retirement plan.

    Cons

    low morale; low pay; you have to know the right people to advance; they refuse to negotiate salaries; low growth opportunities. They cancelled the winter break for employees, even though every other school I've ever worked at has given employees Christmas Eve - New Year's off. This is one of the few perks in working in higher ed. Why get rid of it? No professional development opportunities or tuition reimbursement. Basically, every reason to work in higher education is eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    Merit-based advancement would be nice; maybe raises every once in a while for non-grant-funded staff. Pay your employees what they're worth.

    Pros

    A decent work life balance

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover rate. The pay is so non-competitive it's embarrassing. They low ball your salary and tell you it's non-negotiable. Actions are as if they're telling people to "be happy you have a job and shut up or leave". Vacation is on a "use it or lose it" policy therefore if you don't take any vacation before the end of the year than you lose whatever time you have, which isn't much to begin with. A new person MAY accumulate 1.5 hours or vacation over a two week period which is significantly lower than the competitors. Leadership had opt to increase the hours for then entire institution but haven't offered an increase in pay. And the benefits end the day you leave the institution, which I feel is morally not right since you have to be employed with them for at least 30 days before the benefits start. Tuition coverage/reimbursement is obsolete so if you're interested in expand your education, be prepared to pay 100% from your own funds. There is just no incentive to be the best, productive employee that I am. This place is not the place for people that want to grow in their career and develop their professional skills.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on building moral within the institution; provide tuition reimbursement and professional development opportunities that your employees will not have to pay for themselves.
