What do you like about working at Emory University?

"My co-workers."

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

"The policy is to apply online, so definitely do that. But also find out who the hiring manager is and make sure you get your information directly in front of them, as a lot of good people are overlooked by the recruiters. Also, make sure you negotiate for a decent starting salary, as it is very difficult to receive a decent raise once in the system."

What don't you like about working at Emory University?

"Emory University is holding itself back from being the best of the best. Their marketing department is staffed with incompetent people which is one of the reasons the whole rebranding campaign is a failure. Staffing with incompetent people seems to be a theme of Emory University."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Find recruiters that have specialties, e.g. marketing, nursing, etc. That way there may be a better chance of Emory hiring competent people. Also, once in the Emory system, it was close to impossible to receive a decent raise. The only way to get a good raise is to leave the University and get hired back in another department."
