Support from management

The nurse PhD who said she would mentor me lied. She was more concerned with her students and HER data and research and pretty much "blew off" my attempts to improve myself. She also didn't like the fact that I challenged her (in a professional manner).

Teamwork

They said they wanted you to be honest and direct, but if you said anything against your "hire ups" they would get rid of you.

Freedom to work independently

They acted like they trusted you, but in reality they and others "checked up" on you constantly.

Internal Communication

They told you they shared everything with you, but they didn't

Gender Equality

They did encourage women, but sometimes hires incompetent people because of it.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They laid me off over a younger worker, so that they wouldn't have to pay for my retirement in 5 years. They also didn't want to keep paying my hire salary so "let me go" and then hired someone else for $20,000 per year less.

Career Development

They have great jobs for students and entry level research positions, but unless you have a PhD there is no room to move up at all. Most PhD researchers prefer to keep their research assistants "in their place".

Overall compensation for your work

My salary was decent.

Work-Life Balance

The group I worked with in the Department of Endocrinology expected you to answer emails and texts 24-7 and they didn't give you any extra pay for it.

Company Image

I was proud. They promised to mentor and teach me and then, with no warning, they let me go.

Challenging Work

I was a research coordinator, worked very hard and then all of the PhD's took all of the credit for it.

Inclusive / Diverse

They say they value diversity, but they don't.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think they need to work on finding suitable employment for their graduates. I think they need to support those individuals who work and go to school at this institution by providing more opportunities for them to move up and increase their salaries.

What I like about the company

I developed many friendships over the years and I learned a lot. It was also convenient to work on campus and then go to school for my advanced degree in the same place. I was able to arrange my classes around my work schedule. Going to work and school at the same location made for much less driving for me.

What I dislike about the company

This is a great place to start out working in clinical research. Everyone, even work supervisors, are very supportive. However, once you earn your degree, there isn't much room to move up (most professors stay in their positions for years) and you can work really hard, not get paid much, and then the professors will publish papers and take credit for your hard work. In summation, go to school here and get some experience. Then, once you graduate, you should move on to work for another organization.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Salaries must increase with cost of living and competition in the area to retain and attract the work force needed to do this job. Priority must be given to finding a permanent and proper structure to house the workers doing the jobs.

What I like about the company

Have seen multiple drugs get approved for use in cancers I work with and have seen patients benefit for years with quality time that they otherwise would not have had - very rewarding despite being demanding.

What I dislike about the company

Not respected by the larger organization given poor facilities and salaries are not even competitive within the organization.
