Pros: beautiful campus, great location, after one year tuition remission, benefits, though expensive. for the most part faculty and staff is friendly, easy going, except the person who runs clinical education and one of the coordinators, who had my position previously, are not stable with what they expect.
Cons: unfortunately, they have two sides to their personalities.
The person who runs Clinical Education didn't have faith (but no proof) that I would fulfill the position with the way she wanted it done in the future. All of my work was completed. I put in extra hours and was never late. I took lunch only once in 9 weeks. I never had a sick day. I was always discrete, never speaking a negative word about anyone in – more... or out of the department, and kept all information classified. The transitional coordinator made negative comments about others especially the upcoming newly elected chair (effective September 1, 2014) that was unprofessional, but I kept silent and minded by own business. I remained friendly and respectful to all faculty and staff.
There was no reason I should have been terminated in such a short period (9 weeks) and without a more appropriate reason. I was told I was organized and had strong work ethic by the current chairperson who was easy to speak with and didn't seem to know what to do about this...so I had to be let go to please the person running Clinical Education. The person who runs Clinical Education mentioned I didn't own the position even though I was only there for six weeks at that point. This being said even though my work was all completed in a timely matter with nothing outstanding, overdue, or done incorrectly by a due date. In fact, it was mentioned by the current chair a week before my firing that my work accelerated and that I was doing very well. My termination was done to please the person running Clinical Education. The PT Department is presently in the process to hire new employees in the department, and the coordinator is being promoted to an administrative assistant position to the Physical Therapy chair (effective September 1 , 2014) without a posting going out to the University. The woman before me left for a lower job outside the university which is strange. All of this to satisfy the Clinical Education director's drama episodes. Also, I was never offered any severance pay to make amends for this type of firing. The appropriate person from HR was not available to speak with me upon my dismissal so I met with the benefits person who really had nothing much she could say. A complete witch hunt from the person running Clinical Education and the former transitional coordinator, so please be aware!! – less
