    I have been working at Nebraska Medicine full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working for Ne Med for about 9 Months. The hours and working environment are excellent. Benefits and time off are generous.

    Cons

    Parking on Main campus is difficult. Initially you may have to park far away from your work area. However If you find alternatives like carpooling and bus transportation it is covered by the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on the work environment. Encourage positivity in all work areas and reward safety. All departments including support should be treated equally as they have an important roll in the daily success and treatment of patients.

    I worked at Nebraska Medicine full-time

    Pros

    the salary is better than other hospitals

    Cons

    Everything else.

    Be prepared to work insane amounts of overtime because the hospital will not adequately staff it's departments and those that are there are seeking to leave.

    You will be expected to do the work of 2-4 people and when you express concerns about patient safety you will be told to do your best and there is nothing they can do to help you.

    Management spends large amounts of time in meetings rather than dealing with their department. Management tends to be people who have no clue what it is their department actually does because the hospital is more interested in business than properly running a department.

    There are more cliques than high school. Favorites are played heavily and if you are not a favorite be prepared to be treated like garbage. You will have the worst/most work dumped on you and regularly be a scapegoat for those who made the list.

    Doctors expect you to treat them like Gods. You will regularly recieve complaints about you to management for not remembering or following every request their heart desires. All mistakes are YOUR fault even if it's things you have no control over. Be expected to have to remember everything for them because they are clearly too important to be bothered to keep track of their own cases. It's the peons job to do that. . .on top of everything else.

    The reward for doing a good job is more work. Good luck taking a lunch break.

    Think you can go to HR? Forget it they are not on your side. HR will fire you and find another body because that's what it is actually all about.

    Don't try to transfer departments either. They will give a good talk about being able to move in orientation but don't believe it. What will actually happen is the moment you put in an application that manager will call your manager and you will be drug into the office and interrogated for your "disloyalty".

    It saddens me that the hospital has changed so much in a couple of years. I fear for patient safety to the point where I could no longer face working there. The people who do the training clearly care but the message the higher ups want to send is crystal clear... it isn't about patients it's all about the dollar signs.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people to run the departments who actually have experience in whatever it is they are being asked to manage. Don't lie about the position in an interview. Hire enough staff that people are not working to the point of collapse and making mistakes. Put your foot down and break up the cliques so all people in the department have an opportunity to learn and grow. HR needs to step in when people want to transfer and punish managers who talk about what are supposed to be confidential applications behind the employee's back.
