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

Pros

Depending on your lab, can be a very flexible work environment, as long as the work gets done. The more ambitious people in these positions don't tend to stick around too long- either med school or grad school or something else. Good benefits and vacation policy.

Cons

HR is notoriously stingy and you really have to fight for pay increases. They will try and start you as low as possible and usually annual raises barely keep up with inflation. Your real chance for a pay hike it a change in job title- ask for it when it makes sense strategically.

Advice to Management

None really as my interaction was mostly with a small department.

    Pros

    Despite mismanagment, the camraderie amongst staff is encouraging.

    Cons

    Employees are not supported by upper management and departmental administration.

    Advice to Management

    Management is too hierarchical with little input from 'front-line' employees who actually do the work that management keeps making increasingly difficult by imposing unnecessary protocols, policies and systems in an effort to appear relevant thereby creating a nebulous, inefficient ridiculously political and stifling work environment.
