    Pros

    Rosalind Franklin University has a very good reputation, as it houses the Chicago Medical School. The research there is solid, work that has been established for a long time. There are many elements in which one can gain good experience.

    Cons

    They are supposed to give raises yearly, however have not for the past 4 years. They are supposed to give bonuses in the summer, but they claim they have no money.

    Advice to Management

    The employees need better care: a better health package, raises, bonuses... things that the administrative team seems to be getting.


  2. "All the benefits of a small, close-knit college, but some of the cons too"

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

    Pros

    It's great to be at a smaller institution where it's easy to get to know and collaborate with colleagues from other departments. Administration is very supportive of teaching innovations and the emphasis on interprofessionalism is real, not just lip-service.

    Cons

    My biggest issue has been getting information on and obtaining benefits. For example, no one in HR bothered to explain the difference between HSAs and FSAs, so I know of a few employees who ended up with a really horrible FSA when they were technically eligible for an HSA. Just this past year, I was interested in pursuing an additional degree program at an affiliated college, but RFU offers zero tuition assistance to faculty members...strange for an educational institution that claims to be so invested in its employees.
