Case Western Reserve University Reviews

What is it like working at Case Western Reserve University?

Accomplishments Despite the Odds.
Director of Development (Fundraising) in Cleveland:
Pros: Fellow Employees
Cons: Lack of opportunities to grow, work smarter and more effectively
Executive Assistant in Cleveland:
CWRU completely undervalues their staff employees. The job description for my position begins with "High School Graduate". There I s no way that high school graduate has the proper skill sets, much less even the minimum skill sets, to perform at the expected level this position requires, which is essentially a Chief of Staff position, but is seen by HR as a gofer job. Every new job position that our department has submitted to HR -- from administrative to technical, to even faculty, has been downgraded, and dismantled so that we have few, if any candidates that are interested in even applying for these positions. I was told to my face, when I requested a pay increase to compensate me properly for my duties, of which I have taken on many that were not performed by the person previously in this position, that I was already being paid just above the median, and that they won't pay toward the higher level for this level...a range up to $15K above where I currently am paid. HR's argument, and my boss's is that I'm earning far more than my base salary since I'm being paid overtime! OT doesn't kick in at time and a half until I hit 40 hours, since this job is considered a 37-1/2 hour a week job, yet I'm averaging 50 hour work weeks. This low-balling is true throughout the University...and at almost every level.
If you want fair compensation look somewhere else.
Executive Assistant to CEO in Cleveland:
Pros: I am part of the Events Management team for our department.
Cons: That the school undervalues almost all of their employees.
Director of Operations in Cleveland:
CWRU has not updated their staff payment structure in many years. There are many inequities. They lose great employees because of this and they haven't done anything to fix it. Leadership needs some changes.
Low pay but rewarding work.
Administrative Coordinator in Cleveland:
Pros: I help people dealing with extraordinarily difficult circumstances and help further research on a fatal disease
Cons: Low pay
Meaningful work, but under appreciated in an environment that values research more than teaching.
Instructional Designer in Painesville:
Pros: The people.
Cons: The leadership.
