Horrible
RESEARCH ADMINISTRATOR III (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 15, 2018
No one has accountability! Most are horrible at their job but get to work there for 20years. No training! If there is training, they don't follow through with the new requirements.

Pros

Great Place to Learn and Grow
STUDENT DATA SPECIALIST (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMay 1, 2018
Working for an organization that allows you to grow and learn is great! In just a year I have learned more than I have over 29 years of working. No other place allows you to grow and mature like Morehouse School of Medicine.

Good place to work
Program Coordinator/Health educator (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAApril 27, 2018
Morehouse School of Medicine is a good place to work. They are culturally sensitive to the multicultural community of employees. The organization works well with the community it services. I was proud of the historical heritage of the institution.
Pros
Great Benefits, Flexible Lunch between 11-2 with in this time frame.

Only if you can play the game well
Program Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAApril 23, 2018
Unless you're in upper management, director, faculty, it's very difficult to receive support that you need to get promoted. This culture is truly one that you need to know someone and be in good standing to get promoted. There is some workplace bullying that goes on but never seriously addressed.
Pros
Great for those who are truly in the business of the medical field.
Cons
Admin staff cannot work at home, Admin staff must clock in, Admin staff not appreciated & culture is to keep "you in your place", Promotion only for those who management chooses to groom, One bad word when internally applying &game over, Positions protected though unqualified

Great environment to work in to foster growth and improvement. However limited opportunity to be promoted only room for lateral promotions. It is about who you know! Same people get promoted repeatedly.

Low pay, lack of structured jobs/roles, not forward thinking
N/A (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAFebruary 20, 2018
For the amount they pay, they expect a lot, Lack of support from managers in becoming better in your role. There is no sense of urgency with any job function. The environment is very laid back, and no one is held accountable for things not getting done

Maybe too much of a family atmosphere?
Assistant Professor (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAFebruary 16, 2018
At MSM you are sure to have a loving environment at least superficially. People are very kind and caring. However, if you are interested in doing good work, innovation and being progressive, you will find that everyone is dragging their feet. The status quo is upheld. Don't rock the boat should be the motto. Many people get paid good salaries for doing not much of anything. I looked around as I was busting by butt trying to work hard for the sake of the school and these people are constantly taking vacations and then complaining when they had to lift a finger. Not enough people are striving for excellence. There was little to no mentorship for new faculty. Way too many administrative responsibilities laid on junior faculty without research support and guidance. Administratively, Morehouse Healthcare is a mess. Good luck getting through on the phone. i was one of their physicians and I couldn't get through. I would love to be able to recommend people to work at this school that has so much promise, but until they get their priorities straight, improve their infrastructure, and create an efficient environment, I will not do it.
Pros
Benefits package, warm environment
Cons
Good people are overworked, little mentoring for new faculty, lack of efficiency

Research Assistant (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 25, 2018
Morehouse School of Medicine suffers from a lack of diversity and highly disorganized leadership. However, there are good opportunities for networking, and it is a good place to get some experience.

If in the right department decent place to work
Former Employee (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 9, 2018
Depending on which department you are employed, this is a decent place to work. There are opportunities for growth and career development. Unfortunately this does not occur institution-wide, some managers are less flexible and nurturing.

The people are friendly and for the most part collaborative and inclusive. Compensation could be better. Your salary may be comparable to industry standards but it won't be reflective of the amount of work you put in; and like many academic jobs, you wear many hats that may be outside your role and scope.

Also, the school needs to be more progressive in terms of work-life balance i.e. paternity and maternity leave, childcare options, and creative work spaces.
Pros
friendly environment and opportunity for growth
Cons
work-life balance, compensation

Run!! Run away quickly.
Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 5, 2018
This place will stunt your professional growth! You may even be asked to do tasks that are borderline illegal. The finances of the institution are questionable and it has a massive turnover rate. They will sell you a dream so stay focused and run away, as fast as you can.
Pros
Students
Cons
lack of funds, budgets are short, no room for growth, high turnover, no significant work responsibilities

Msm
Administrative assistant (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 4, 2018
MSM can be a great place to work depending on the leadership of the department you work for. I did enjoy my time at MSM until the department leadership changed. The hardest part is getting assignments completed because of the lack of resources or waiting for other departments to respond to a request. The department I worked for was like a family before leadership changed, then it became stressful. I learned about credentialing, hospital appointments for physicians, different computer programs, residency, billing and EHR.
Pros
Good relationships with co-workers
Cons
Not enough resources
