    No salary adjustments for several years (no merit raises or cost of living adjustments)
    Tuition reimbursement recently removed from benefits
    $150/year to park on campus/off campus parking is limited and the surrounding is not great so you are taking a risk
    Lack of communication from upper management; Dean's updates used to happen quarterly but the frequency has decreased contributing to rumors and gossip.

    I worked at University of Kansas Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to work with individuals in many areas representing different specialties. Hospital cafeteria food is affordable and usually good. Good healthcare benefits, generous vacation and sick hours.

    Cons

    Overwhelming lack of communication between almost every department on campus. Hostile work environment that actually seems to be promoted by HR. Slow, inefficient research environment that is overwhelmingly political. Library facilities outdated. Lack of parking. No training or possibility for career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication. Listen and follow through with employees. Consider hiring new upper management for departments from outside the KU system. End the selective favoritism that creates different standards for employees.
