    Former Employee - Research Technician 

    I worked at Western University of Health Sciences full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Really good benefits and incentives. Good work experience that can be taken elsewhere to move forward. Unfortunately, there is not much opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    HR was terrible. They don't care about employees and are only concerned with protecting administration. Research staff are overall very undervalued and need to be compensated better.

    I have been working at Western University of Health Sciences full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and starting pay, general comradery between faculty and staff, opportunity for learning new skill sets in collaborative efforts.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability in faculty and staff, poor job descriptions and structure, difficulty in job advancement, favoritism and politics (but what job doesn't have at least a bit of these element).

    Advice to Management

    Any business runs more smoothly with more effective leadership. Lack of accountabilty trickles from the very top to the bottom, and makes the University as a whole less efficient. The students pay good money for us to do a better job.

    I worked at Western University of Health Sciences full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    WUHS has a good benefits program and like most schools, good PTO. In fact, they let you accumulate it pretty quickly. President Pumerantz - now mostly in name only unfortunately - genuinely cares about the employees and students. There are some very nice people working there.

    Cons

    There are also some very incompetent, and downright nasty people working there too. I would probably still be there, but out of the entire 400-person faculty, I had three who for whatever reasons didn't like or believe in me as an employee. Problem was, those three were in the positions of power in the hierarchy, and Dr. Pumerantz was in no condition to take command anymore.

    Advice to Management

    In talking to other employees, most of us sense a slow decline is going on. Too many jerks being hired with too much power. The Provost and President need to take charge again, get HR to vett the new hires better to make sure they fit with the WUHS culture, because the upper management is rapidly forgetting about the humanistic mission of the school.
