Executive Director, Marketing and Communications (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – July 30, 2014
Pros: higher than usual salaries
Cons: little or no support from supervisors, opression from colleagues and leadership, workload is overwhelming.
I worked there for four years and it got harder and harder each day. The management is sub par and so is much of the staff. I was hoping and wishing for a better job culture, but it just never got better.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Atlanta – January 11, 2014
Pros: flexible work hours, near marta rail and bus lines
Cons: no job security, no room for advancement, you have to pay for parking in the parking garage
Highly unorganized and dysfuntional organization in need of improvements in every aspect. Old computer equipment, not enough office supplies to do the job effectively. No communication between management and lower staff members. In a financial crisis, several vendors have not been paid for services, several staff members have not been reimbursed for – more... travel expenses for several months at a time. Part time employees are expected to do full time work with no assistance. If you are a part time employee do not go over your 20 hours in a work week or you will be reprimanded about it. I would not recommend working here unless you are the type of person who has no drive or aspirations to go further this is a good position for a newly high school graduate as a summer job or a freshman in college. – less
Good place learn about higher education administration
Program Manager (Former Employee), Atlanta – December 3, 2013
Pros: small and family-oriented co-workers
Cons: very little upward growth/ advancement
The environment was productive and ever- changing to the trends of current higher education administration. The organization was small and created a family- oriented atmosphere. The hardest part was to manage several job functions due to limited staff availability. This is very valuable is learning various responsibilities in different departments.
Intern in cafeteria (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – September 5, 2013
Pros: free food, learning experience
Cons: the new managers attitudes, short lunches
A typical day at work was getting there at eight in the morning and diving headfirst into work. Setting up the line, getting grill material prepared, stocking things that needed to be stocked(gloves, wax paper, plates, cups). I learned how to cook on the grill and work in a fast paced environment. Breakfast started with a hungry crowd and lunch started – more... with an even hungrier. Management was good until the new management came and was very nonchalant and rude about things. My coworkers were easy to get along with, just like I was very cheerful and funny towards them so we all stayed in a comfortable environment. The hardest part of my job was trying to sit down for a break. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing all the smiles on the customers faces. – less
MANAGER OF FACULTY RECORDS (Current Employee), Atlanta, GA – August 15, 2013
One enjoyable part of my job is overseeing the different databases that house the faculty's data. Not only am I able to manage their material on campus, but the national databases as well. We have instituted another web based data system that will capture the faculty's activities called Digital Measures. With the new web program, new training has been – more... facilitated which allows greater interaction with the faculty.
A typical day at work involves data input, Organizing faculty files, overseeing the recruitment of new faculty, and committee meetings.
There are three other people that make up the office of Faculty Affairs and Development. It is a newly formulated organization which is steadily growing. The faculty depend greatly on this organization for their credentialing, their appointment letters, reappointments, seminars and new appointments. We work very well together as a team.
I have learned the many things being at a medical school. Their process are so different working at an undergrad institution. I have learned about how long it takes the credentialing process, the differences between the ranks, new data bases and much more.
Manager (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – August 8, 2013
Cons: nepotism, lack of fiscal management, no pay raises
Nepotism is a large problem at the school. Management hires family members or friends that are not qualified for the positions. Theses individual are managing the finances and the school is in severe financial trouble. Employees have not been given a pay in over 6 years.
education (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – August 8, 2013
However, it not a place to retire. MSM doesn't provide enough benefits to retain their non-faculty personnel. For example, no education reimbursements, no raises for over 5 years, and etc. It's a good place to learn a lot about graduate education but then take that education to another institute.
Finance Department (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – July 28, 2013
Cons: low wages, no raises, hostile environment, high crime area
I worked there for over 5 years as a top notch employee. Never received a raise nor a performance evaluation. Management does not promote from within and they discourage problem solving and critical thinking. Processes and procedures are archaic and involves tons of paper. You have to pay for parking and they feel like the occasional free sandwich from – more... an area restaurant makes up for the low wages and hostile work environment! I have never been so disrespected in my entire life! – less
E-Learning Developer/LMS Administrator (Current Employee), Atlanta, GA – May 30, 2013
My work with the National Center for Primary Care at Morehouse School of Medicine has completely utilized each of my professional skill-sets, from producing creative online training, to management and administration of online learning systems, to effectively communicating with key stakeholders (c-suite execs, directors, etc.). I work with a highly educated, – more... dynamic group of individuals primarily on grant-focused work. It is an exciting environment, as we daily confront the challenges of producing high-quality product for several grants at a time. Success is the minimum, as we are a national resource of people that are underserved in healthcare. – less
