Research Assistant II (Former Employee) –  Department of ChemistryAugust 4, 2017
WashU-St. Louis places a high priority on how it treats employees. The work was interesting and there was also a collaborative culture in my office that made getting the job done easier. I would recommend it to anyone who places a lot of value on outside obligations such as to your family or kids.

Very intense work place
Business Center Secretary (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOAugust 4, 2017
This university is an "ivy league" university, and therefore; a very intense workplace. I did enjoy my position, but there is very little room for advancement unless you have a degree. I did feel a great sense of pride as a staff memeber

Busy place
Medical Assistant II (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJuly 6, 2017
The management is usually always awful in every department here. Oncology in treatment at the CAM, and Multi Specialty Clinic in South County especially is the worst. They don't have high turnover just because of career advancement. It's because their staff goes running for the hills. Don't work at either place!! The University really under appreciates their medical assistant and should pay them more. They never want to promote and the raise suck! Only good thing to working here as a medical assistant is the benefits.

tiff for taff, poor management, work you to death

Stressful and not enjoyable
Tech II Lab assistant (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJuly 3, 2017
The manager does not distribute the work fairly on each employee. He also does not provide efficient ratings on the quality of work that each individual provides. He discusses inappropriate humor dehumanizing a certain group of individuals. I, myself, cannot be in a work environment that discriminates, and disrespects someone.
Pros
Friendships made with colleagues
Cons
Being forced to work overtime

Not a place to work for the long haul
Manager (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJune 22, 2017
The school of medicine has some toxic departments and poor leadership is systemic. There are many dedicated employees that do everything that they can to take care of patients, but leadership consistently tries to do more with less.
Pros
The food is quite good and the offerings include various ethnic dishes.
