Outstanding PTO, tuition reimbursement and medical & retirement benefits
former employee (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – September 24, 2016
The pay scale is competitive for the area & the benefits are great. A lot of organizational changes occurring within many departments and many mid-upper level management employees with extensive numbers of years of service are being replaced creating an atmosphere of job security concerns.
vacation, sick leave, tuition reimbursement, medical and retirement benefits
lack of HR support for employees, good ole boys environment
Great working environment - benefits could be better for a top St. Louis employer
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – August 12, 2016
Great place to be! Co-workers are great, excellent vacation policy, work is not highly stressful, management is reasonable. I work in the Alumni and Development Department and we are offered many opportunities for professional training but advancement can be slow. Biggest complaint is they offer no paid medical leave for new mothers. You must use any accrued vacation and sick time and once it runs out you are not paid for time off. During the medical leave-you still have to pay your portion of health care which is difficult when you're off without pay.
Metro pass, 22 days of vacation, great health insurance rates, professional development, excellent enviromment
Paying a significant amount for parking, onsite childcare is $1500 a month even for admins who make 30K, no paid maternity or paternity leave, 6 month probation before you can use any accrued time off
Facilities Technician (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – August 8, 2016
addressed all building automation @ the central hub. Servicing all buildings in the university. I learned to be self sufficient, to manage myself and quaity of work performance. My co workers were kind, yet cruel. Hardest part of the job was staying busy. Most enjoyable part was much reflection time during slow hours.
Very stressfull and inconsistent place to work. Family members are not to be highered, but large amount of employees throughout Wash U are family mem
Certified Ophthalmic Assistant/Patient Service Rep (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – July 30, 2016
Many caring and talented doctors and co-workers.
Very short staffed in many areas, and has increasingly gotten worse.
New Management and Culture took over in last 2 years, boasting goals of Supreme Customer Service.
The result has been loss of good hard working people being replaced and short staffing in areas that where already extremely short. In the short staffed areas a hiring freeze was demanded and new micro management positions invented.
New Service Culture has not demonstrated better service for the patient. It has resulted in longer wait time for patients calling for appointments, refills or a possible emergent appointment.
Due to schedules that already where overbooked, and now are increasingly more so. Patients again suffer very long office wait time to accommodate the demands on how many patients a doctor is required to see.
Helping patients with a problem. You felt you accomplished something.
Unless you smoked, no breaks. 30 min lunch, and if you clocked in 3-4 min EARLY, you could be written up for it. It did happen.

IBC II (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – June 12, 2016
Department of Surgery Management team is horrible if you are a new employee you are treated like a new employee, they have snitches, and play alot of games if you are not liked then they just pick and pick instead of praising employees for bringing experience and knowledge and New Management do not know anything. Dept of Surgery Third Party is horrible run, please run, and Management team talks to employees rude and they lie on other employees and management is very negative. ..The worst of all the long six months probation insane. Management focus on dumb things instead of learning there job and all of the Third Party Management needs to attend management courses and customer service courses..would not recommend anyone to Dept of Surgery.
Vacation Days once you get through 6 long months of probation.
Management lack of knowledge, game playing, 6 months probation.
Appointment Based Mentor (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – March 22, 2016
Most of the positions were related to teaching and the educational field. I was able to get basic experiences in the field of science and medicine, as well as work closely with leading professionals in the field of medicine.
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Washington University in Saint Louis – March 18, 2016
There is a 6 month probation instead of 90 days where you can't call off period so if you have small children i wouldn't recommend quitting your current job to work for Washington University. Management not understanding plus many of the positions are float positions they don't reimburse for mileage or gas and you have to pay for parking are use the free metro pass. But if you float between locations the metro pass isn't going to work for your situation i was stuck paying for parking $70 a month plus being under paid in many of the departments for all the work they want you to do as a medical assistant.
Janitorial (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – February 11, 2016
in the typical day of work I like to stay busy, although while I'm at work I learn many different things about my job. you could never expect the same boring day. there always something going on if its with a co-worker or management, but when its something big is going down it always had something to do with management.
