    Pros

    Plenty of hours, competitive pay, great leadership!

    Cons

    Some nurses can be less than helpful, raises are not high enough, nurse/pct-patient ratio is absurd and unfair.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff or distribute patients more fairly.

    I worked at Medical University of South Carolina full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Job security. Look around and you’ll quickly learn that you won’t be fired based on poor job performance.

    Cons

    The administration is not accommodating or appreciative of its employees. Must pay $30-$100/month for parking that is off campus and requires you to be shuttled in by bus on a very unreliable and seemingly nonexistent bus schedule. Every small task is an act of Congress. Difficult to get reimbursed for company expenses. Difficult to book meeting locations. Difficult to pay invoices. Incompetent IT department makes job even more difficult. Some people work 80 hours per week with no bonus, no promotion, and a maximum of a 4% raise. Also, employee work spaces are cramped, outdated and very minimalistic. Bathrooms are old and gross, too.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in and appreciate ALL of your employees.

    I worked at Medical University of South Carolina full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best staff and patients you'll ever meet.

    Cons

    The pay is not sufficient for the work.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay for pcts and investigate issues instead of just taking the nurse manager's word. They are not always right.

    Pros

    Would consider musc to be a great place to work most of the time. However, it goes through cycles.

    Cons

    They have cyclical staffing issues and when its a problem it is a very high work load for other team members. This varies from floor to floor but I have seen at least twice over 3 years where too much is demanded of the staff and there will be a cascade of hard working people that will leave.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to place more importance on a balance of staffing.
