    I have been working at University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Management listens to what you have to say and in turn give a great deal of clarity on the direction of the organization and what that in turn means to you. The compensation is good especially when factoring in large amount of paid time off and virtually no expectation to work from home.

    Cons

    Due to the unique way the University runs the hospital and the medical colleges, politics can get in the way of progress. Most non-management employees in the Information Services department recently became part of the SEIU union, this is unconventional and not necessarily a Con but it should be mentioned.

    I worked at University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Academic setting, good docs, interesting residents, challenging patients, union contract, great benefits and pay

    Cons

    Culture discourages employees from striving for better performance, management tries to find loopholes in contract instead of abiding by it, hires from outside rather then move from within for cheaper labor and less benefits, hard for nurses to change units to enhance their profession and mgmt knows the nurse usually won't leave the "u" after passing probation so the nurse stagnates and just ""does the job" because his/her efforts are not rewarded. He/she is stuck where they are. This is a change from the past when current nurses were valued and given opportunities to grow by changing units and often working several in their career. Not the place I first worked. Insurance decent but slow paying (11 months after service) so be prepared to pay at the visit, pay in a few weeks or go to collections and get your credit damaged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow the contract in the spirit it was written, remember the Golden rule. Your nurses are the heart and soul of the unit, treat them as professionals, mentor them.

    Good benefits, but trying to advance has been moving at a snail's pace.

    Get it together and maybe we would stop threatening to strike

    Pros

    I found the diverse work force and patient population culturally stimulating, professional staff is dedicated to quality patient care and supports one another to this end.

    Cons

    Working within an organization as large as this can be frustrating at times as the capacity to make rapid change gets bogged down within the bureaucracy, e.g. hiring and replacing staff requires a long search and approval process

    Decent place to work but room for improvement

    Pros

    Benefits and vacation time are generous. For the most part management is flexible and allows you to work independently. If you are academic staff, they are flexible about your work schedule. There is a tuition waiver, and room for advancement. If you leave and decide to come back, managment tries to be accommodating. Most of the staff is friendly, open to going above and beyond the call of duty to help other team members and patients.

    Cons

    Your salary increases are minimal. If you do have to use a time clock, there is very little flexibility in your schedule and you get reprimanded for clocking in early, late, and managers will usually not approve overtime pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There seems to be a lack of motivation on the part of management to recruit the best, most qualified staff.
