Productive place to work and learn. Educational values are high for employees. Employees can earn a Bachelor's Degree free. Master's Degree you get 5200 a year. There are no tuition benefits for the Doctoral Degree
Flexible work hours
Layoffs and cutbacks, promotions and raises are not consistent
Computer Operator III (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 26, 2018
Had a great run climbing the proverbial corporate ladder. Ended a bit prematurely perhaps for reasons unknown. Returning to work at Drexel was a great decision non-the-less as I met my wife while employed there.
Standardized Patient (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 21, 2018
This is a world class simulation environment. They welcome creativity as well as ingenuity. The managers are also a good reason to work here. If there is a problem they are understanding and authoritative. They listen and instruct with fairness in mind.
ACADEMIC ADVISOR (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 31, 2018
Overall Drexel University is a good place to work. The particular college I worked for at the University could use a new way of thinking when it comes to how they handle students. However, Drexel has a great community and promotes within. Lots of areas to advance and move.
Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 25, 2018
Working at Drexel does afford you with some great benefits, health insurance, 403b match, pto, etc. I am fortunate enough to have a great boss who is interested in helping me advance my career and allows me to have a good work life balance.
Supervisory Lead Security /Bike Officer (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 23, 2018
Drexel University is a very nice college to work for. During my time working as a security officer. I gained so much experience, understanding, and knowledge working as a leader. The department has a lot of potential for growth. Very good communication and customer service skills with the community, students, staff and the faculties.
ASSOCIATE VICE PRESIDENT, UNIVERSITY BUDGET OFFICE (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 9, 2018
Used to be a great place to work. In the last so many years they have experienced massive layoffs and there are no longer any raises. Wonderful benefit packages although they are reduced more and more yearly.
Senior System Administrator (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 1, 2018
Drexel University can be a wonderful place to work. However, it is all dependent on who your supervisors are. A great supervisor will make this place a dream. A not so wonderful supervisor will make you want to leave in no time.
Drexel IT Specialist (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 27, 2018
This was only a temporary summer job through the Philadelphia Youth Network, but I did not like it at all. I learned how to refurbish a computer, but other than that they didn't have much for me to do.
Reasearch Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 23, 2018
Since I was balancing being a TA with trying to graduate, the effort of keeping up with everything was rather hectic and my GPA most definitely suffered. Teaching recitations was fun, and you got a lot of satisfaction from interacting with the students.
Free printer/copier access, access to extra facilities, respect from colleagues
Program Administrator Contracts (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 15, 2018
Up until recently, I looked forward to each and every day coming to work. Drexel has given me the opportunity to learn so much more regarding the in's and out's of the preparation and negotiation of a clinical trial agreement. Previous positions did not give me total autonomy regarding the agreement. Until submission for signature, Drexel Contract Administrators are responsible for everything in the Agreement. In some cases this included the preparation and negotiation of a Non-Disclosure Agreement to the Clinical Trial Agreement (budget, ICF and in some cases the SIV). I found that in each and every agreement I was involved with not only did I learn new negotiation techniques; I also made new and important career contacts. While the job itself is stressful, the collegiate atmosphere, at least in my opinion, makes me look forward to coming to wrk.
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 6, 2018
I currently work as an adjunct professor at Drexel. I am given complete control over what is taught in my course and how it is taught. My particular department trusts its adjunct to bring the most pertinent information from the field and deliver it to the students,
IMS Technical Specialist & Phone Support (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 5, 2018
Overall, I enjoyed working with my coworkers and the job wasn't horrible. The systems were constantly failing, so especially at the beginning and end of every class term there would be critical system failures. The office was small but it wasn't too much of a problem as the environment was comfortable. My only qualm was there was no possibility to advance past the part-time internship.
