    I have been working at Morehouse School of Medicine full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The faculty, staff and students are awesome. The school is doing so much that needs to be shared in the community. Everyone there wants the best for the institution and students, thus why we tolerate a lot of nonsense.

    Cons

    Leadership is less to be desired; when I say leadership, I mean the President and Dean; everyone else in the leadership council is beat down and ineffective.

    Advice to Management

    Ruling with an iron thumb is not working. Listening to your competent counterparts would benefit the organization and bring back support = giving. Turnover is not because people are getting what they want then leaving; most are leaving with jobs to go to, which is VERY telling.


  6. ". . . . in my opinion"

    I worked at Morehouse School of Medicine full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great staff, faculty and motivated students

    Cons

    As with many schools, upper management can be crude and despite continuous staff turnover, many maintain their positions

    Advice to Management

    When a company, school etc., starts to lose great productive employees in droves, changes should be warranted
