    I have been working at Medical University of South Carolina part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most everyone I encountered while working at MUSC is dedicated and enthusiastic about their work, which helps others to do the same and keeps the patients upbeat even in difficult circumstances.

    Cons

    I was hired part-time with a job that was supposed to have a ton of flexibility, but they changed the hours requiring us to do 12 hour shifts, which I could not do as a student and so I had to quit.

    Pros

    I absolutely love my boss and I have had, overall, a great experience at MUSC.

    Cons

    It seems like my particular department, there is a lot of nepotism. People seem to have a little too much time on their hands and tend to gossip quite a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your good people more and get rid of the slackers!

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

    Pros

    Friendly Staff, OK benefits, Conveniently located

    Cons

    Where do I begin? I worked in Information Solutions as the GM of their tech store they planned on opening. From day 1, senior management looked to me for all the answers. They were rushing to open the store with a plethora of items not in place. The COO of the dept had zero managerial qualities other than being a former coast guard "captain". She should've stayed in that career because retail is not her strong point. She would try and use big words to make herself feel important however she never would tell you directly what she wanted you to do. Not to mention the pay range they promise you is always at the bottom of the barrel on the scale.

    It was difficult working with people who can't communicate or assist in senior management decision making. Especially when it came to other races, sexes or genders. There is a lot of politics and you have to play "the game."

    If this isn't your style RUN! This is a company that will suck the soul from your body and leave you broke because the pay is garbage unless your senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Drain the swamp! You have people who are working in high powered places, not doing their job. Yet the younger mentality comes in and they don't want to play. Clean house and you will see things get done.
