    Pros

    The Health benefits and 401k are great. The main admin AOB building is really nice.

    Cons

    Here is just a small list of issues. Management had no idea what their employees actually do. The workload vs staffing level has gotten much worse. They can't hire for positions that have been vacant for a year. No a family place. Everyone looks out for them selfs. This reorganization is a load of crap that was not discussed with the employees. The CTO is an unprofessional person and would yell at you in front of people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on family and project the same image internally as you do externally. Keep people that are valuable and not just let them leave.

    Pros

    401K plan is pretty decent. The benefits could be a lot worse.

    Cons

    Middle management is terrible! The bullying and micromanaging is at an all time high. Understaffed and overmanaged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start talking to the workers. It's time to reassess some of the middle management. Especially those with only a high school education. No one should ever have to sit in a management meeting and watch a manager verbally castrate another member. Not to worry this person has already been promoted.

    Pros

    Great company, management makes you feel like you really matter. Employee development is very strong with classes and workshops.

    Cons

    Some departments are understaffed for the current work load. There are some inequities between UW Hospital people and Medical foundation people in the area of benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Look at matching benefits with UWHC

    Pros

    Low insurance rates. Benefits for 401k, life insurance, and tuition reimbursement are good. Some of the supervisors are good to work with.

    Cons

    Management not in touch with employees. Manager makes excuses for all the employees leaving. HR received many complaints from several staff but same issues continue. Bully environment, staff being yelled at, verbal abuse allowed. Manager wondering why the morale is so low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff. Take staff complaints seriously and don't tolerate the mistreatment of your staff. The staff aren't robots. Copy what Ohio Univ Hosp did for their IS department and reward your employees for all their hard work with summer hours, staff that are parents be given the option to work .8 or .9 work schedule every 2 weeks. This is not a family orientated department with the way things have been changed and forced on it's employees the past couple of years. Highly qualified staff have left to be consultants so now there are a lot of inexperienced staff in place. There was so much work that you demanded all employees in the IS department to work fulltime instead of hiring a few more staff. You lost a lot of good experienced staff and for what ? Shows how you treat and value your employees. Word is being spread that the IS department is not a family friendly place to work for. This is a health care organization which treats its employees horribly.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, opportunity to make a difference in someone's life through better health care and education.

    Cons

    Mid-level management not always as professional as I have been accustomed to in past work experiences. Difficult to get clear direction on expectations, depends on whom you are talking with at the moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase size of float pool so that people are able to use their vacation time.

    Pros

    One of the main benefits was that everyone that worked there treated each other as humans. Politics was mostly non-existent within the group.

    Very family friendly, and flexible working times.

    Interesting challenges, and a great freedom for an individual to introduce new ideas and projects.

    Cons

    Salaries are a bit below market for the area.

    Politics in dealing with physicians can sometimes become arduous.

    Little room in budget for any training beyond purchasing books.
