Washu Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Washington University in St. Louis, WashU, is a private research university in Greater St. Louis with its main campus mostly in unincorporated St. Louis County, Missouri and Clayton, Missouri. It also has a West Campus in Clayton, North Campus in the West End neighborhood of St. Louis, Missouri, and Medical Campus in the Central West End neighborhood of St. Louis, Missouri.
A former student said this in a review "The permit costs are outrageous ($500+ per year). Not only does WashU fail to admit students who are from lower socioeconomic statuses, but also make going to school there very difficult for those who do get in because of the huge extra costs of attendance such as mandating freshman to live on campus in dorms that cost $14,000+ per year".

Nurse (Former Employee) says"No words quite describe it. Thats it. It was very strange and different from what I thought it would be. Culture is very different than you would think.

Registered Medical Assistant (Former Employee) says"They will keep managers who steal patients copay they will tell you to pay your for surgery in cash like who really does that and pocket the rest.

Until a medical professional really gets to the bottom of it and when you find the truth employee of washu they will fire you ."

Analyst (Former Employee) says"I would not recommend this place of employment. All around baad management, service, employees, long hours, cut people after 20 years and more without notice, replacing you behind your back.

Cons: You'll never measure up while your job skills erode and your soul turns to stone."
Postdoctoral Research Associate (Current Employee) says"After 7 years' employment, your child/ren get free tuition at Wash U, or half of their tuition paid at any other university. That is the major benefit of working here. The sick leave and vacation are standard. The health plan is United Healthcare, which has a reasonable monthly cost but sub-par copays and coverage."

I was having heart palpitations from the stress of this job."

Medical secretary III (Former Employee) says"I was called Talaban from another employee and stated that I was going to blow Everyone up. I reported the incident, but it wasn't taken seriously. I was even told by my manager to be the bigger person and reach out to the same employee that insulted me. That employee never lost any time away from work, nothing. She kept drama circulating throughout the office. Then my boss started trying to say I was Missing too much work, which I wasn't. I told them that I wouldn't be forced out. I am the victim here....They ended up firing me, saying it was my attendance and the employee that made racial remarks still has her job. Forget Wash U."
