GU ensures that you have a work/life balance by training their managers to support their staff to ensure everyone meets the organizational goal. It's truly a family oriented workplace. The benefits are great...tuition reimbursement for external university and religious holidays off.

Poor Management

Administrative and Grant Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 24, 2015
Georgetown needs to hire external company to review all centers and institutes to ensure processes and procedures are followed. More effective communication and enforcement of rules is needed at all levels. Training for new employees and position manuals are needed.

communication, procedures, and training

My team worked as a team and that was very rewarding
Facilty Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCMay 16, 2016
Working for this copany you receive great benefits, which is very important. It has a bit of a different culture. You have to lean early on that you are dealing with a lot of ;people from many different cultures so you have to learn, quite quickly how to handle each person, check the rooms they are responsible and look for what they excel and fail in.

When you get there expect to hit the ground running, there is a lot of work and to truly work there and finish all your work expect to work long hours
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
must be prepared to work very hard and overtime to finish work

Productive and nice environment
Project Assistant (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCFebruary 4, 2016
Working here gives me opportunity to develop my own approach towards the research being conducted. I learned to think out of the box. Instructors in the lab as exceptionally easy to work with and helpful. Hardest part of the research work is to be patient unless you reach to the goal that is set off while initiating your work. But, working in such an environment makes it easier and enjoyable experience.
Pros
Instruments and lab equipments deserves kudos..!!
Cons
Financial Assistance is a little difficult

experience highly depends on department
Education Program Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCMay 9, 2016
Overall GU has excellent benefits but low salary in comparison to other DC jobs. Your experience highly depends on where you end up at Georgetown. The medical center is infamous for being horrible so I would say to generally avoid it.

Brick wall
Fleet Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCDecember 10, 2014
My career there started out great. Then the supervisor got disgruntled and made life miserable. Constantly brought home issues to work. Very un-organized work place, no direction, no communication, no advancement, multiple fees HAD to be paid. Every time you got a raise, all fees such as parking increased. Over a six year period your check never moved but you paid more taxes and fees.
Pros
holiday time off
Cons
management, advancement, fees

Best part
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCSeptember 30, 2015
The most enjoyable part of my job is witnessing the students mature, graduate, and move on into their career field. The faculty are sincerely interested in the success of each student and they always find a way to show their appreciation to the administration for all that we do to keep the department together so that they can focus on doing their job, teaching.

Great Place To Work
Account Clerk III (Former Employee) –  Main CampusJanuary 11, 2012
Georgetown is a fantastic employer!! They really have a lot to offer and one of the best things that I liked about Georgetown was their promotion of professional growth. There are several opportunities to advance through employer sponsored trainings. There are also several opportunities to meet different people who visit the campus such as Maria Shriver, The President of the United States, attendance of concerts and other events; all for FREE!! The surrounding areas also have a lot to offer.
Pros
benefits, advancement opportunities, free shuttle service
Cons
none; maybe location/distance for some
