    I have been working at Emory University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Brilliant colleagues. Literally brilliant. Librarians. Developers. Technologists. Researchers. Physicians. Professors. Administrators...I have worked with them all, and overall - these are some really smart people. It is an atmosphere where learning is encouraged. Most of my colleagues appear to be high achievers. They want to be the best at what they do. This elevates the whole group's performance. Everyone contributes to the high bar we aim to set. Otherwise, there is tuition reimbursement. Certifications and training are standard around here. The flexible work schedule and ability to telecommute once or twice per week makes this place darned near perfect.

    Cons

    The commute used to be my biggest issue, but with the ability to TC once or twice a week - this "con" is all but alleviated.

    Advice to Management

    More interaction and transparency when/if re-orgs happen.
