    I worked at Rush University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Its a safe and stable employment. You have no fear of losing your position unless something illegal is done.

    Cons

    Pay rate is at the lowest of many competitor around.

    Advice to Management

    Managment needs to be more encouraging. They need to help grow an employee rather than break them down.

    I have been working at Rush University full-time (More than a year)

    Workload, Amount of travel, Work locations, Lack of opportunity for upward advancement, Salary, Benefits

    Advice to Management

    It is comforting to know that making a mistake does not lead to immediate termination. However, it is discomforting to deal with difficult employees who feel they don't have to change bad behavior because they have no fear of disciplinary action. Additionally, for the CEO to promote Rush as a research-centered institution, it sure doesn't seem like the research teams are cared for very much.


  7. They do not care about their research staff.

    I worked at Rush University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The buildings were new. The building is close to the CTA, so it was easy to commute to work.

    Cons

    They really didn't give us that much time off. Our PTO was supposed to be used for Federal Holidays. The pay was not great and it really showed in the staff. It was hard to stay happy there when everyone else was so drained. They expect so much work out of you but at the same time pay you nothing. Christmas parties were cancelled and also there were no bonuses. Pay was barely above retail.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more. They boast patient satisfaction but not employee satisfaction. I don't know about the patient, but Rush can't get anywhere if everyone that works in the research department is broke and in debt.

    Pros

    There are some really dedicated faculty and staff (and students, lets not forget the students). There are some people who really want to help transforming it into a fantastic place.

    Cons

    There are some people who have unrealistic expectations and who are frankly, horrible people. There is a lot of dead weight and there is a community of 'well, we've always done it this way' whic leads to major roadblocks.

    Advice to Management

    Lead. Don't let the faculty manage up. Slap their hands and tell them to behave and pay attention, for once.
