Emory University Employee
in Decatur, GA

"Great place to work. I was a contractor and only left because my contract was up and they couldn't keep me. They had flexible work hours with the ability to work from home 2 days a week. They have a lot of smart people that share information and allow you to learn a lot of new technologies. I would definitely recommend this place as somewhere to work."

Emory University Employee
in Atlanta, GA

"The organization lacks representation of minority scientists, which is a nationwide issue but given the demographics of Atlanta and surrounding suburbs and universities should really not be an issue with an administration that supports change and improvement. This institution is a great place for career development, including recent NIH funding to address issues of ethnic/racial diversity of biomedical professionals and postdoc professional options for all ethnic/racial groups."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"A job at Emory University will only be rewarding if you have a PhD or MD and could potentially be at the top of a department that you are interviewing at.

"Every team will be different, but there's a culture of isolation and us-against-them in many departments."
