Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Emory is a great place to learn and obtain an education. They provide all the resources needed to succeed and there is always someone to help. Campus is also well structured for proper areas of study and communication.

Low pay but not a lot of work. can get unorganized. mostly students work there and some of the events can be fun. Swim is least fun, but being a ball chaser is easier.

Emory University insights

Based on 338 survey responses
What people like
  • Ability to learn new things
  • Clear sense of purpose
  • Time and location flexibility


You are getting underpaid and they do not offer the opportunity for development. Your supervisor can make sure that you do not get salary increase. It is good for a little bit but it does not offer career advancement

Working around positive people

Some days are good and positive. I have learned how you clean and sanitize instruments use on patients during surgery. The hardest is when your coworkers decide not to work and make it harder for the others. The most enjoyable thing is being educated and, Emory having a trainee class preparing those that what to become certified have the opportunity to. They will pay for my testing when I'm ready to take the test.


Being thankful for the opportunity of taking me in as an employee


Being not recognized for your great work

Great benefits, low pay

The pay is pretty low but the benefits are good. Management is a little unorganized and there’s a bit of a disconnect between staff and administrators

OK place to work

Emory University is a good place to work. Lots of benefits and great people. But sometimes poorly managed. Things we need for research break often, things are not kept up well. They also don't give enough thought to postdocs. We don't get enough office space or break rooms. Little things like that become very frustrating.

Outgoing wonderful place to work

People here are amazing and helpful, especially just starting a new job. Everyone is patient and takes time out to make sure that you understand what's going on and are courteous to your time outside of work.


free food, amazing people to work with, and beautiful sites

Organized Work Place

Superiors were always communicative of expected outcomes for student employees. Fellow work study students were always open to collaboration, organized, and on task.

Supportive Workplace

I love being an Emory employee. My supervisors have always been supportive, understanding, and accommodating of my goals. The pay for most positions is less than the industry average but the benefits and healthy work environment have been worth that sacrifice so far.

Productive and professional growth

Able to grow in your role. I enjoyed my time there as a staff nurse. There are many ways that nurses can grow within the company and as a professional

Good Benefits and inclusive environment.

The work environment varies from department to department. My department had unresolved conflict and poor communication. Those in charge were reluctant to be accountable for things that they are responsible for

Stressful, soulless, good benefits and pay.

What is the best part of working at the company?Excellent health insurance with low co-pays, low deductibles, tons of great providers, and few restrictions on what's covered. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Emory is an elite university that gets most of its acclaim by being ranked in the Top 25 among other U.S. universities. But it's right on the cusp of falling out of the Top 25. That situation creates a work climate that's so desperate and high-pressure that most employees find it to be an intolerable workplace. Long-time employees especially feel this as Emory passes over candidates with years and years of experience for outsiders who may provide some lift to already stellar rankings. Students feel the pressure too and report a lack of campus spirt, an unhealthy academic climate, and widespread mental health problems. Beyond brooding ambition and tons of cash, Emory doesn't have much of any culture for its employees or students. On the other hand, it pays far better than other Atlanta universities, and it's great for your resume. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Desperate, high-pressure, aloof. What is a typical day like for you at the company?Lots of emails, catering to donor and alumni demands, responding to outside pressures, inching forward on strategies that aren't that innovative.

cool place to work. Had a good time. supervisors are kind and not overbearing or have too high of expectations. I liked working there a lot. No complaints here.

Caring and equal opportunity

A very accommodating institution. Meets my needs. If I need to leave for a few hours, no problems. Never hassled when taking sick leave. Will listen to your concerns. Also, Emory is flexible with your schedule.

Important job, but clients often misunderstand

Clients frequently misunderstand the Writing Center's focus + mission statement, which leads to undesirable sessions with clients who are angry and unsatisfied. The Writing Center is not a proofreading service. It does not take a prescriptive approach. However, many clients come to the Center wanting for their work to be edited, rewritten by the consultant, or told what they "need" to do. Clients do not usually understand the collaborative aspect. The job is good, but the clients make the job hard.

Great company

I have been at Emory for almost a year and you get great benefits. Emory university also allows us to have extra days during the winter off. Social work outpatient is nice. I am able to WFH most days which is great.

Demeaning and dismissive.

What is the best part of working at the company?The salary I made at the time.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?The supreme lack of training after being assured training would be provided and the negative attitudes from the supervisors.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Very negative and and oftentimes dismissive. Held back one of my checks and didn't receive my tax forms until 3 days before the deadline.What is a typical day like for you at the company?I struggled with anxiety because of how I was being treated EVERY day. While there were many positive aspects for cancer patients, as an employee I felt disrespected.

Easy going

I worked as a student and my supervisor understood that being a student came first and then working. I was also limited to 20 hrs a week to ensure I focused on school
