      Good education, poor personal development

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - variety of labs to join - variety of topics to research - easy access to collaborations with clinical departments and engineers at Tech

      Cons

      - don't implement student feedback to improve graduate programs - faculty are not engaged in encouraging professional development (some individuals are but on the whole not really) - challenging to navigate who to go to on the admin side to help you when you have problems - many students face problems getting out when they are ready to graduate because faculty want to keep fully trained senior students for as long as they can

      Cons

      Typical of academic practices, work list responsibilities change rather frequently. Work load overall remains managable.

      Work Environment

      Apr 24, 2021 - Clinical Research Coordinator III in Atlanta, GA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The work schedule is flexible at times depending on the amount of patients you have.

      Cons

      There is no support at Winship. The work load is to heavy and the expectations are unrealistic. The turn over is extremely high and there is no upper level accountability. This place is a revolving door. I recommend just getting the experience and leave. It is very stressful and the pay is too low for what you do here.
