  • The only complaint I have is how expensive parking is. And just because you pay for parking doesn't mean there is going to be a spot open for you to park in

What I like about the company

I have worked for this company for a few years now. They treat their employees very well and I really like the team of people that I work with.

What I dislike about the company

Parking is a nightmare but that is just part of being downtown. I wish they didn't charge so much for parking

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would streamline the hiring process. I would eliminate the diversity group. I would find a way to provide low-cost parking.

What I like about the company

We conduct life saving medical research. My bosses give me the flexibility I need to conduct business. My staff is a great group of hard working folks. Our work is challenging. It is nice to work at a large urban university campus.

What I dislike about the company

We have a department of diversity: this embarrasses me. It is sad that a major university feels the need to set up a department devoted to telling it's staff to be nice to each other. Also, the bureaucratic system is very slow when it comes to replacing open jobs. Parking is a nightmare in the whole area.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would work on the time off policies to ensure it matches sister institutions in the state. Feelings of disparity can arise due to these differences. I would also like to see them work on communications with faculty and staff members with proactive versus reactive communications.

What I like about the company

This is a place which cares about providing its employees with the opportunity to improve and grow. A rapidly growing institution where you have the unique opportunity to get in on the ground floor in many areas and make an impact.

What I dislike about the company

This enterprise is so large that at times communication streams can become muddled.
