This was a great place to work. I would not have chosen to leave. I left because the practice was closed due to restructuring by the company/hospital system

Georgetown would be the best place to work in the US if employees were paid a salary proportional to the cost of living of the DC area, this is the only thing in my opinion that the decision makers need to get better.
Other than that, it is a great place to work overall, work life balance is great, coworkers are very nice, helpful, and respectful.

I will very much recommend Georgetown University to anyone interested,
Pros
Flexibility especially for family matters.
Cons
Low salaries, no career advancement.

Although there is stress that come with being the coaches of a collegiate soccer team, Georgetown's coaches were kind and were very helpful in day to day operations.

I was an Administrative assistant my freshman and sophomore years, and it was a fine part time job that paid slightly above minimum wage at the time. Not too busy generally, and could do homework. No student coworkers that you can talk to, because they're all adults.

I have had a great experience working as a student guard this year! Perfect for students who want to be able to study while on the job. Recommended for all students at Georgetown University who want to make some money during the school year.

Despite being in excellent financial health, GU salaries are way below any industry in the area. Benefits are excellent though, 3 weeks vacation, 10% employer match to 403(b), tuition assistance, health, dental, vision, days off during the Christmas and New Year seasons.

One major drawback is parking which is not subsidized and the monthly rate goes up every year. You cannot find monthly parking on the main campus as all spots are taken. You must park offsite and then walk 20 minutes to campus or wait for the shuttle which is always late and runs intermitently. If you take metro, it's the same story, wait for the shuttle to take you to campus from Dupont Circle.


If you're looking for career advancement you need connections because skills, experience and abilities are not a big factor; it's who you know and is willing to help you climb the ladder. One final drawback is that GU allows for the employment of family members. So you'll find positions filled by manager's or director's family members; hence many people with limited skills and education are hired more often than not. If you wish to build your retirement fund and are desperate for benefits, GU is the place, if you can get in.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Low pay, parking is a nightmare and not subsidized

The University told me upon being hired that they would send me to training. This turned out to be an untruth. Middle management is unprofessional and hostile. Turn over is high and more then 1/2 department was laid off within the last 5 months.
Cons
constant concern about layoff

Their nine Colleges that comprised the University. Amongst the main branches, the Facilities department on the main campus stand apart. Not only they are professionals, I found joys and excitement to work with them.

This job was stressful because the training was inadequate. As a result, the office closed and moved to main campus.

LEAD is an amazing program. In just three weeks, you learn so much about the business world. I got to work with some incredibly talented students, creating business plans, participating in case studies at various well known companies in the DC area, and competing with other LEAD programs in business based games.
