Suggestions for improvement

  • Streamline processes for accomplishing work, such as IRB, contracting, etc. so that there are not so many hoops to jump through.

What I like about the company

The ability to participate in the Teacher's Retirement (TRS) is a huge benefit. This will provide future security.

What I dislike about the company

It is so large that sometimes things are very cumbersome and it is hard to get things accomplished due to so many layers.

What I like about the company

They encourage all employees to increase their learning and offer all kinds of classes and certifications.
My boss will let me off to be with family everytime.

What I dislike about the company

Slow to make things happen. 2 departments will go back and forth over who will pay for the nail to hang a picture. It delays progress.

  • 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.
