Washington University was an excellent place to work.
Administrative Assistant to Chairman and R.N. (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – July 17, 2018
A typical day there was to meet with other staff members and management to determine goals and objectives that needed to be met. Also included was completing computer projects on an ongoing basis. I learned a lot about the medical field there, and how to work with the employees to accomplish the goals that needed to be completed. Management was very helpful in learning, setting goals, and accomplishing them. The workplace culture was very quick paced, and working with high level co-workers was challenging. The hardest part of the job was meeting all requirements that needed to be done, and establishing good priorities in the process. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting the goals on a timely basis.
Working with others, learning about the medical field, and establishing good working relations.
The quick pace was difficult to keep up with, the high level of operation was challenging, and management had very high expectations.

Benefits are great. I enjoy the perks of working at Washington University. Especially since I have a kid about the age where when she graduates she will get a full or partial ride to her college career.
MyChart Support Staff (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – July 8, 2018
It was a pleasure to help patients overcome what for many would be a scary technical hurdle--signing up for an online portal to see their medical records. Ultimately this will help patients by giving them ready access to all their test results in one place. It will also help the doctor's office staff save time and improve patient communications by reducing incoming calls in favor of secure emails and online scheduling.
Precertification Coordinator -Infusion/Medication (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – July 3, 2018
I personally enjoy working for Washington University. There are a lot of great opportunities with this Organization. Your days at Wash U can vary. Some days it can be relaxed and others may be stressful, but it's very rewarding at the end of the day when you know you have helped the patients we serve.
Scientist (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – June 29, 2018
The research branch of the University is intellectually stimulating and rewarding by itself and the university has a very encouraging environment for academic and research excellence. However, the pay scale is nowhere to match the amount and quality of work one puts in.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – June 21, 2018
I was a postdoctoral research fellow for 5 years. The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs had great career development programming. There is an opportunity to gain management consulting experience by joining BALSA, a perk I wish I had taken advantage of earlier.
Emergency Medicine Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – June 19, 2018
Every day is different within the Division. WashU provides great resources to employees from career development to healthcare. I learned how to process payroll for incentives, credentialing and privileging, and scheduling.
Tuition reimbursement is very restrictive to certain programs
Executive Director (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – June 14, 2018
Academics is a difficult workplace. Washington University strictly adheres to policies and principals for all staff level positions. However, faculty level positions are not held to any standards of conduct making managing/working in such an atmosphere most challenging.
Facilities Tech III / Coordinator (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO 63110 – June 3, 2018
Respond to customer requests & resolve the situation as quickly as possible. A lot! Plumbing, electrical, heating, cooling, ventilation, refrigeration, & air handlers. Management was usually fair. Fair workplace culture. Balancing all of the requests could get a bit difficult at times. There were a lot of skilled workers that you could discuss & learn things with.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – May 28, 2018
Communication lacks within the office. Theres sadly drama everywhere you go and you never know who you can trust. Your not often appreciated for your hard work or the wrong person gets your credit. Busting your butt is over looked and the lazy get by with everything. There is quiet bullies which is also over looked or somehow unseen. Id give anything to be in management to squash out that kind of thing in a office however as a medical assistant you do all the hard work as a nurse does but its never good enough so you will mever advance it seems.
