    I have been working at University of Utah Hospitals & Clinics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Health insurance is very affordable, tuition reduction is a great option for employees. The environment at the U is great, it's a very diverse campus.

    Cons

    Parking is awful, pay raises are minimal, it seems like the hospital has lost the ability to recognize employees individually over the last few years.

    I have been working at University of Utah Hospitals & Clinics

    Pros

    Generally great staff. Some managers are great, others not as much. It just depends on the department. They do have a great retirement plan that matches your contribution up to a certain point. The half price tuition for yourself and family is awesome once you have worked there long enough to get that benefit.

    Cons

    The pay could be better. Health insurance cost doubled two years ago, but it's still fairly reasonable depending on the plan you choose.

    I have been working at University of Utah Hospitals & Clinics full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are still pretty good. Pay is decent. There is plenty of opportunity to grow professionally if you have a desire. In some departments, it's still possible to get a job without enough experience or education if you know the right people.

    Cons

    Reduction in benefits recently, but they are still pretty good. In some ways it feels like we change direction every few months, and in others, it feels like we hold on way to long to policies that should have been dumped a long time ago.

    I have been working at University of Utah Hospitals & Clinics full-time

    Pros

    Nice benefits, uta pass, half-price tuition

    Cons

    Actually working there... especially awful for the working class staff (I.e. everyone who's not a doctor, nurse, mgmt, etc.) Huge workloads, little or no recognition for dedication and/or hard work, treated like we're stupid, second class, losers who can easily be replaced. And to top it all off, we're required to do work off-the-clock

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try living for just one month on the wages of the "others", you know - the people who keep the place running and actually break a sweat everyday.
