    I have been working at Vanderbilt University full-time (Less than a year)


    People, employer, benefits, city, job are all great.


    Even though Nashville is a great city, some it is not easy for some folks to get adapted to it, especially for ones who are used to more cosmopolitan and big cities.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more resources into R&D.

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Vanderbilt University (New York, NY) in August 2017.


    Applied online. Then had a phone interview. I was referred by a current employee, so it came down to having the right experience and knowing the right person. It was a painless process
