    Management is based on MSN, not ability to manage people.

    Pros

    Fun fast work place with young people in the learning phase of their careers. Great compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Management. Probation period for nurses ridiculously long, 9 months???

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't think having a MSN makes you a good choice for management. If you want to fire someone at least allow an opportunity to transfer to another department.

    It has the potential to be great, but politics will keep you down unfortunately.

    I have been working at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits are probably the best part of working here. Time off is adequate. The overall environment is a positive one and they strive for patient satisfaction.

    Cons

    The merit union is the biggest downfall in my opinion. Employees in merit positions aren't compensated as well as the other union and this drives people away, like myself. An example of the discrimination between unions in the same office is the 2nd shift differential. Merit employees make about $100/week when the P&S union employees make $500/week. That is just the tip of the iceberg! The merit union is only really there to protect employees that do something wrong, plain and simple. Also, there is hardly any chance for advancement or promotion unless you take an entirely new position elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make employees feel valued and get the unions on par with each other. Maybe then the turnover rate wouldn't be so high in areas like mine.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for advancement. Good pay and great benefits. Most employees are very professional. Good working environment throughout, employees voices are heard and respected.

    Cons

    Large organization, too much administration/high ranked individuals making decisions for the rest of us when they don't know how they will affect the actual workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel that there should be annual supervisor and manager reviews just like there are annual employee reviews. This should be a 2 way street.
