    I worked at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital

    Pros

    The health benefits are great and the retirement is 2 for one.

    Cons

    Understaffed and underpaid. The current staff is overworked to the point of being unhealthy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff departments and raise the pay scale. Reward loyalty

    I have been working at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, especially 401k 200% match! Ample time off, vacation leave, holiday leave, and sick time. Have nice tuition reimbursement policy as well, and will also pay for an advancing degree of 18 hours per year.

    Cons

    Three 12 hour shifts per week, work is hard, and many times employees don't feel as if they have a say in their workplace and policies. Depending on the unit you work on greatly depends on the employee mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let employees make more decisions and be involved in change.

    I worked at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits; Health insurance is the best I've ever had; Retirement is awesome too

    Cons

    Ridiculous sick-time policy. Only 3 sick days a year. On the 4th call in it's a write up. The 5th is a verbal and 6th is termination. Hit or miss on the quality of the cafeteria food!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Depends on the unit

    Former Employee - Nursing Assistant PACU in Lexington-Fayette, KY

    I worked at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Insurance was awesome. Most people are friendly and work culture was good where I worked (PACU) until the budget cuts hit.

    Cons

    Takes forever to get anything done with administration. Zero tolerance for tardiness. THE BUS... OMG, the bus.. having to waste 30 minutes of your life parking across campus and riding that bus.

    Pros

    Get to know senior management team relatively easy, although personal connections are hard to form; people - staffs and employees are friendly.

    Cons

    Seemed management team is distant from the actual work/company culture that were experienced by the employees on the front line.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Lexington-Fayette, KY

    I worked at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities usually exist to work as much or as little as you want, benefits are available to most employees although they are extremely expensive if part-time, constantly changing workplace, rapidly expanding facility, and a reasonably friendly place to work for, by healthcare standards.

    Cons

    The majority of full-time employees seem to be there for retirement benefits, extreme top-down organizational hierarchy, limited horizontal or vertical movement by employees, constantly changing healthcare landscape makes long-term planning tenuous and questionable at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Showing a bit of appreciation for junior employees seeking to establish themselves and potentially build a career would be an excellent change that is very unlikely to happen within this organization.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and lots of room for advancement. Thorough training and was a great job for a student with down time to work on homework during 2nd shift.

    Cons

    If you are a hard worker it was easy to overwork yourself due to lazy coworkers that management let happen

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manager genuinely seemed to care however maybe had too much on plate to take corrective action towards balancing workloads amongst employees

    I have been working at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital

    Pros

    Great job security and the fact there is always room to move up

    Cons

    That you have to work long day and nights and sometimes be on call

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people to complete the work force. there are too many holes now, i think with more of them filled and a little less work load on current employees would boost moral and help everyone in the long run. You've got some employees working 20-30 hours of over time every pay period and its wearing them out
