    I worked at Indiana University Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    pto, on campus employee clinic, salary, good food in the cafeteria (Methodist)

    Cons

    Aside from a few people, the department in which I worked, transplant administration, was full of cold and unfriendly people. I was always glad to see the sandwich maker in the cafeteria.

    I was hired for a job that didn't exist. Not long after starting I was told that had they (IU Health) advertised it to be what it really is, no one would have taken the job.

    My position was managed by someone not familiar with the skills needed to do the job. While may be adequate in other aspects of this person's job, it wouldn't make sense for a nurse to be managing a technical position, for example.

    Some managers want to know when their employees go to lunch. Instead, mine wanted to know where I went to lunch. If I went home for lunch, she wanted to know it. If I got off the elevator with an unmarked lunch bag she wanted to know what was in it.

    In all seriousness, I was supposed to engage in gossip, listen to stories about other people's home renovations, and other people's family life on the weekend. If there was conversation in the room I had better be a part of it, else risk a private conversation with management.

    Putting in extra effort was strictly forbidden. Despite being salaried, despite knowing I don't like to break my concentration simply because I had put in 8 hours, I was talked to repeatedly about proper work-life balance because someone saw me working late or saw a late email.

    Eventually IU Health and I split ways. Just like when I was hired for a job that didn't exist, the separation paperwork listed things that my manager admitted to me was untrue with an almost Brittney Spears or Paris Hilton "tee hee. I guess that shouldn't be there."

    My experience at IU Health was an unfortunate one. However, I've still encouraged others to apply there. I think it's a good place tAside from a few people, the department in which I worked, transplant administration, was full of cold and unfriendly people.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be responsible for supervising only jobs in which they understand the skills needed to do the job.

    I worked at Indiana University Health full-time

    Pros

    Pay well and time off is decent.

    Cons

    Want to be an employer of choice but bad policies, inconsistent adherence to policies and inconsistent management leaves an employee feeling mistreated and not valued.

    Advice to Management

    Fear of what a few could do has lead to policies and an environment of mistrust causing many to seek better employment choices elsewhere.

    I have been working at Indiana University Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flex hours and unlimited OT (if you earn it)

    Cons

    We are overworked, underpaid, we’re held accountable for everyone else’s jobs. We don’t get paid holidays (even though we cannot work those days) but we have to use the little pto that we earn each check for holidays. Some of us are forced to train new team members even though we aren’t team leads or senior analysts-meaning we aren’t technically qualified to do it. We aren’t given any bonuses or incentives to meet the nearly impossible production and quality metrics. I could go on and but I’m sure you get the picture.

    Advice to Management

    Forget the career ladder and promote team members. Also, pay your people! There is no excuse for CUSTOMER SERVICE to make more than ANALYSTS and we do more work than ANYONE! Also, stop putting restrictions on everything. Working from home shouldn’t be more miserable than coming into work. Everything shouldn’t be based on your ineffective productivity and quality scores.

    Cons

    Employees treated as a commodity, slow to change, inconsistant in management

    Advice to Management

    Increase in leader training a must. Review of manager performance needs to be taken more seriously and corrective action implemented. Too many people leave citing their manager as the reason.
