What is paid time off like at Vanderbilt University Medical Center?

Pros

Flexible work from home schedule Very supportive management Fantastic benefits (PTO, health insurance premiums and copays) Great work-life balance

Cons

Salary is about 25% than the industry standard for this same role. They try to compensate for this by providing flexibility with working hours and PTO that is significantly better than average, but a low salary is hard to ignore.

Does Vanderbilt University Medical Center offer massages?

Pros

Farmers markets on campus every seasonal Thursday; decent benefits; gym on campus; campus functions as a small city with lots of mediocre cafeterias and food stalls, a post office, pharmacies, etc.; free ice cream days; lots of free lunches; free walk in clinic for staff.

Cons

Parking. Administration, at least at the departmental level, is a disaster. Constant errors on my insurance and pay checks. Poor morale with "publish or parish" attitude and highly competitive environment.

Advice to Management

Trainees such as postdocs and graduate students are trampled over by principal investigators. We have no dedicated time off (many labs expect 7 day work weeks), and no protections in place as everything is left to the principal investigator's discretion.
