    Pros

    Some of people that you meet at this organization become like family. This helps to keep a positive environment in some of the most toxic situations.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities within the departments. Your job description changes ALOT but you do not receive additional pay or raises. There isn't room for work life balance for exempt employees.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the staff to evaluate the management. Most staff leave not because of the decisions of the President but because of direct leadership within the department. Keep up the good work Madam President.

    I have been working at Morehouse School of Medicine full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility (depending on your dept)

    Cons

    LOW employee morale. Seems that all "staff" employees have several things in common; they agree that leadership doesn't care about employees unless you have an M.D. or Ph.D; they agree that supervisors, especially those in leadership, are VERY disrespectful & could benefit from extensive training in people skills; agree that leadership positions are over-paid and that staff are extremely under-paid; agree that morale is low; and agree that is obvious and evident that leadership doesn't care

    Advice to Management

    Bad reviews are not just disgruntled employees. Please notice that there is a problem and work to fix it. You can start by finding alternate ways to compensate when funds are not available for pay increase.

    Flexible work hours, unlimited overtime.

    Poor leadership, no value for employees.

    You are not above your employees, we all started some where. When employees are treated fairly with dignity and respect they will go to hell and back for you!!
