    I worked at UMass Medical School full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great professors, nice people, some good benefits

    Cons

    Administrators of departments are too powerful and autonomous. Too much emphasis on how long you have worked there and not enough on performance. Administration hires way too much at top while reducing staff at lower end (janitors cleaning every other day).

    Advice to Management

    Have classes on federal laws, wage hour laws and Disability. Encourage department staffs to work together rather than as fiefdoms run by individual dictators.

  8. "senior policy"

    Keep up the good work!

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at UMass Medical School full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good health insurance and flexible time off, when needed. The DCAP and FSA are a tremendous help as is the Free Tuition at all State Universities and colleges.

    Cons

    Absolutely no opportunity for advancement whatsoever. Poor, if any, raises, incredibly dissatisfied staff and low morale, with most people using their positions as, "stepping stones." With the exception of managers, people are paid poorly and have no interest in their job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop duplicating your heavily paid Upper Management. They do not perform as you believe and are a waste of the School's money.
