I have been working at Georgetown University as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Students in the graduate school are motivated to learn and they contribute to teaching.

Cons

As an adjunct professor, it's a challenge to juggle various accountabilities, but the school dean and I are clear on what we need to accomplish, and I am 100% committed to best achievable outcomes.

    I worked at Georgetown University full-time

    Pros

    Its great working with the participants and conducting research.

    Cons

    The project investigator is an enabler. The project director is an ineffective leader and is incapable of making decisions. Sadly, there is a hierarchy in the office. If you are faculty you are treated with the utmost respect and if you are staff, sorry you are insignificant. There is not "I" in Team. No advancement opportunities or raises.

    Advice to Management

    The supervisors need to take a course on how to be an effective/fair leader in the workplace.

    Pros

    Offers good work-life balance, have a fair amount of autonomy. People very helpful and willing to answer your questions whenever you have them.

    Cons

    Work can be monotonous, some in upper management are either under qualified or overwhelmed, lack of direction on a daily basis and policy needs to be updated.

    Advice to Management

    Wish there was more transparency from management on what they are working on.
