    Pros

    Good benefits and work life balance

    Cons

    HR and Compensation have been busy trying to fit everybody into boxes. This is not something I would expect from a University in the year 2017. I've been waiting over a year for a promotion and have actually ended up with more responsibility and the choice to downgrade to an hourly title or to just take a merit increase. It's not a very rewarding situation as your hard work and dedication to take on more responsibility does not move you up. You are better off quitting and coming back under a new title. That's an unfortunate situation to be in. You don't hold onto talent putting people in boxes. This attitude will cost the University dearly as they endure the time and cost to replace those who eventually become fed up and leave.

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

    - Very open to your personal life (at least in my group)

    Cons

    - Due to the amount of people that stay and don't leave, there are rarely opportunities to move up from your position

    I have been working at Emory University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are outstanding! The company is steadily growing which can lead to advancement and opportunities to learn. People are very friendly and easy to work with.

    Cons

    The pay scale is low. HR and Compensation make it extremely difficult to get an adequate raise. Staff members are extremely suppressed when it comes to pay increases, no bonuses. Work/Life balance is a joke!

    Advice to Management

    PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT the annual pay incentives and give your staff annual bonuses. PLEASE look at the leading companies and increase salaries based on the overall market and not just the medical field, which is lagging behind severely. Increased time off and more than one WFH day a week would help alleviate stress and increase productivity.
