  • Pension Plan  (5 comments)

    “Pension plan is gone. No new employees will get it, and no new contributions to existing employees. The benefits package has gone downhill fast.”

    “In all the time I worked there using the university's insurance, I never received a medical bill. I've had numerous surgeries and never a...”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off  (5 comments)

    “Six weeks on the job and you can start using your vacation benefits. take a week at a time, a day at a time if you are hourly.”

    Nothing, unless you consider having to use their docs...since we are world class, that is a given. I loved my time at the University, in fact I am trying to rejoin this institution.

    There's no pension available for employees. the benefit representatives have no knowledge about their job. So you get the run around.

    As a part time hourly employee, you accrue PTO fairly quickly. As a part time hourly employee, the maternity benefits are terrible. You are only eligible for 4 weeks of short term disability paid at 50% after 2 weeks of exhausting sick time for a vaginal delivery. If you have saved up PTO, you are not qualified to take any short term disability and must exhaust all leave. This is pretty sad to return to work after only 6 weeks of time off plus no vacation or sick time left in case your baby is sick. You do not even get to open a 401k until after a year of working there.

    Great benefits! Especially the employer's contribution to the employee's retirement fund.

    Great PTO options, with separate vacation and sick leave (hourly employees accrue this throughout the year). Also given a few personal days off each each quarter. They roll over to the next quarter, but "expire"/need to be used before the end of the year. I had the UCM insurance and had great benefits, and low cost prescriptions. The one major downfall is that to maximize benefits, you had to visit the U of C campus. It was easy on days I worked to just swing by during the day for an appointment, but challenging having to commute to Hyde Park on weekends or other days off if I didn't want to pay the difference for out-of-network costs. There also aren't very many associated clinics or sister hospitals available.

    Health insurance was good. The dental insurance wasn’t very good in my opinion.

    I don't really know much about the benefit packages that were offered at the University of Chicago Hospitals because I was only a part time worker and so I didn't have exposure to that.
