    Pros

    Company has great benefits including reduced tuition after 6 months. Very patient focused. Well respected hospital in the Intermountain West.

    Cons

    Management can be difficult and distant, unable or unwilling to help. Hospital politics can become a huge issue if you upset the wrong person. You must pay for a parking pass, and if you come to work after 9:30am there are no available parking spots remotely close to your building.

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

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunity to get free trades training, business writing, and leadership programs. The dept. has the cutting edge for maintenance and asset manager program. Technician have Ipads to look up work orders and able to communicate to their supervisor, buyer, and other techs. Great benefits, retirement, free UTA TAP/ON Pass, give employee appreciation gift cards/meal tickets. (50% Tuition for school) Scholarship opportunity.

    Cons

    Parking is hard that is why they encourage you to use UTA. For F&E dept. No accountability for Tech that do not do their work and supervisor don't care. A lot of blame is pointed to support services when they try to show multiple solution and the tech has to do a few work. When Supervisor and Manager retire and leave they say it is Most Qualify Person but goes with the Technician that has been there the longest and have poor Leadership/manager skills.

    I have been working at University of Utah Hospitals & Clinics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great learning environment, awesome staff, good reputation, knowledgeable colleagues, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Upper management is frustrating and unaccommodating. Lots of politics involved, and they don't listen to floor staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your little people. They're what the company is built on. Maybe instead of paying your nurse managers upwards of $150K/year, you could offer your employees some kind of monetary incentive to pick up shifts so we aren't ALWAYS short, or, I don't know, give us a reward for our hospital being ranked #1 in Utah. (You know, it's OUR efforts on the floor that contribute greatly to that. And the banner was a nice touch, but we would've appreciated something that actually thanked us for our efforts... not something that mainly served as an advertisement on your end. Hell, we would've been tickled pink with a free drink from Starbucks or a meal voucher for the [overpriced] cafeteria. Anything.)

    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.

    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.
