The circus came to town and put down roots.

Where do I begin?
If you have the right friends in the right department, you may have a career at this institution. If not, you're out of there as soon as your boss begins to feel threatened by your skills and their lack of skills. I've seen more degreed professionals in positions of leadership here that have no leadership, vision, or people skills than in any other place. It's an "urban jungle" whereby few do anything to uplift their own "people", unless you have the right friends and connections. If you don't have the right connections, your days are numbered. And I'm just going to come out and say that since the place is mostly run by women of color, if you are a man of color, you're a doorstep for their boot heels. This isn't perception. It's reality. Don't expect to get anywhere in the system at this joke of a medical school. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy, much less a friend or family member.
Silos, management lacking leadership ability, the place is run mostly by women who hate men of color, no work life balance.
