Emory is a great starter company for African Americans Unfortunately it’s only so high we can go. Get experience and go!
What I like
When tragedy hit my family i was concerned about my job and the amount of time i needed off. I was able to be out of work for a few months and get paid. Emory was very supportive. Also with my medical conditions, they are very understanding and allow me time when needed.
What I dislike
I think we should get paid for Holidays without it coming out of our PTO. Especially since we don’t have the option to work them. Also, i think the hint of racism has to go. There are lots of African Americans in the company who could take higher leadership roles and excel at them, and ultimately improve the company. There is like an underlying fear of black people succeeding here.
Suggestions for improvement
I would make everything uniformed. Emory has general policies and procedures, but they vary by department. No department operates the same.
Culture varies between departments
Freedom to work independently
Depends on the manager/department
Overall compensation for your work
Emory pays significantly less than its counterparts in Atlanta
It’s not a bad company, i just think i can do better
This is hit or miss. But after a certain point theres a cap on how high you can go. Unfortunately, African Americans have less growth opportunities
Once you learn the systems everything is easy
