The work environment in the Molecular Microbiology Department on the Medical School campus is very strong, offering opportunities to learn through seminars and online courses, and the social aspects are equally enjoyable. There is something happening every week.
Cons
Small Salary Increases

Overall, WUSTL is a fantastic research environment with a large network that fuels collaboration. Only issue involves the long day and extraordinary expectations held for most staff.

Very traditional “follow the chain of command” culture. Managers that have been there for years will try to “block” new people from succeeding if they feel threatened
Toxic
Pros
Prestigious Name

Understaffed departments that are consistently behind

WashU is an awesome place to work. You can get know some great individuals, there is room for growth and the benefits package is top notch. But the management is poor, at best. The supervisor is an angry, loud, overbearing micromanager than has a Napoleon complex. His boss lacks a backbone and doesn’t know how to make a decision on the fly. Efficient work flows is a lewd phrase there as anything that seems like it’s gonna make the job easier is frowned upon. I am thankful for the experience, but I’m will never work in that particular department ever again
Pros
Benefits, coworkers.
Cons
Inefficient management, micromanaging

Students can choose whatever hours they want. It is a rewarding experience, but it can be difficult to navigate the teaching process when their mentees are not interested in the subject.

Overall great company to
Work for with great benefits and employee perks, however many managers do not have trust in employees and do not ask employees questions when situations arise. Jump right to you being wrong and possible termination
Pros
Vacation, pay, benefits, ability to advance
Cons
Zero trust in employees

The benefits are amazing. The work I did was not exactly challenging or stimulating (except for the Excel).
The pay is slightly higher than the regional pay.

My manager is not supportive and is very sneaky. She says one thing to her supervisor and the opposite to the employees. The upper management needs to be evaluated department managers more Thoroughly and consistently.
Pros
Leave time accumulation is great
Cons
Deception by managers

Worst place ever! Supervisors listen to gossip instead of actual facts. They will write you up to keep employees from transferring out of the department. Another fact is they will bring friends, and relatives into the department making more money then you do with no experience. The best perk of WashU is the free college given they allow you to attend.

I Worked hard at Washington university we were always busy and had to do multiple jobs at a time to get the job done in a timely matter. I would also sort mail for deliveries and have to arrange it in a delivery sequence.

* racist and unfair treatment
* according to ethnicity, low pay for the amount of work.

* high stress

* poor management skills (once told in a meeting by the head ” mgmt is family) basically meaning they have each others back”. so the deep issues will always exist. very segregated dept.

* unhealthy environment

* lack of care

* favoritism

(HR DOES NOT CARE, MANY COMPLAINTS MADE WITH NO CHANGES TO DATE)

I loved working here. I would go back in a heart beat but I needed a little more money for my family and WashU, unfortunately, couldn't give what I needed. Their hours are amazing, the benefits are OUTSTANDING, and I would recommend this job to anyone!

I tutor students in multivariable calculus once a week. The time is very flexible and the management of work hours are very organized. I like taking new concepts and applying them in ways that are easy for students to learn.
Pros
breaks, time flexibility
Cons
none

WashU is one of the best universities in the nation. Good vision for its progress and programs. Benefits are a mixed bag, but salaries tend to be higher than other private universities.
