- National Institutes of Health27.Dec 2018
Again, NIH never had a problem with other institutes that I worked for "ONLY" NIAID
Support from management
again, the office was divided by race issues so and NO decision making
The current supervisor managed two offices one in Bethesda and the other in Montana and the employees in Montana are all white yes the co-workers were divided and offered to do overtime, promotions, remote/teleworking, details to other offices within NIH, yes unfairness I believe race played a major part.
Freedom to work independently
Somewhat , still micro managing by the former last supervisor
Well the internal communication did not work for minorities at all always the last to find out anything that was going on in the office
Nope the men (African American) in the office was allow privileges as far as teleworking not the (African American women)
Attitude towards older colleagues
Yes and no depends on the supervisor(s)
Overall compensation for your work
The lab I supported and one of my former supervisors awarded me with on spot awards each year including my performance appraisals ratings 3,4, and 5). My last supervisor did not compensate me at all and I was given an unsuccessful rating a 2. I never in my work history of the Federal Government receive an unsuccessful rating never!!
Office / Work Environment
The environment was okay
The last office I worked in with the new supervisor no friendliness towards minorities (African American and Hispanic women)
Former institutes in NIH were fair and gave me reasonable accommodations. Having a child/young adult who has a disability Downs it helped my work-life but my last supervisor with NIAID would not allow me any reasonable accommodations and it forced me to resign in November 2018 after 17 years of service with the Federal Government.
NIAID one of the institutes of NIH ....NO
yes very stable
I'm not disable but they do offered handicap accessibility
work safety was never an issue and yes
The workflow was challenging which was not a problem it was the unfairness how the work was delegated.
Inclusive / Diverse
The office I formerly worked for NO for minorities (African Americans and Hispanics)
Suggestions for improvement
- Management needs to be replace including my last supervisor
What I like about the company
I enjoyed working for NIH I've met and work with many good people and learned a lot about the mission of NIH
What I dislike about the company
The institute NIAID and the NIH EEO sides with management which gives NIH a bad name.
