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.
Poor Leadership, but great people. The college-finances are declining.
Director (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 16, 2018
The people (workers) are great. Covering your butt is required. Over 300 positions elimitated in the past 2 years due to poor financial descisions and leadership. No merit increase in over 4 years except for executive leadership. Instead they give you time off to compensate for poor financial descisions. Morale is very low and knowing who you can trust is not easy. If you need a job and there is nothing else out there...I guess you have to consider, but steer clear until the current leadership is gone and financial situation is better. Drexel will be great again, but not under the current leadership and financial woes. Remember...they want you to think things are great. Make sure you ask questions and be sure to negotiate everything in writing.
Great people, compensation and benefits
Cut-throat leadership, poor finances and morale is a majority
Working at Drexel as an Undergraduate Teacher's Assistant was great
Undergraduate Teacher Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 14, 2018
I enjoyed every day as an undergraduate teacher's assistant. I was blessed enough to work for some amazing Professors and Teachers alike. My first year was a little confusing on what was expected of me but after that it was very simple. I could control the class room without interruption and had the benefit on understanding on how different people could view the same question and destruct it in different way but still receive the same answers. I would include and challenge the class on who could get a better solution. Most of the time I won but there was one occasion where a student had a better approach than I did. I loved every minute of it.

Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 18, 2018
I just have a temporary employment with Drexel. Based on that, I can state that it is a good place to work. The professors are great and willing to make you learn the work assigned to you. Very cooperative and understanding!
Physician Assistant - Student (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – March 29, 2018
The school has changed since I was there. It was an intense 2 year program. The instructors were average. None of them had actual teaching experience and it showed. We learned by reading the text books
