    Pros

    Experience gained is priceless. Working for Rush opens many doors.

    Cons

    No way to really advance in career. Most employees have been with the company for years and will retire, which leaves no room for younger individuals to advance in their roles.

    Pros

    Team environment. Plenty of internal opportunities. Open door policy. Incentives for health and getting on track. Employee perks...discounts on recreation and entertainment.

    Cons

    The only downside is although they have great benefit packages, I would think that in the healthcare environment, more would be covered, especially with dental.

    I worked at Rush University Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very relaxed work environment with friendly people and a steady pace. Very collegial environment amongst work peers.

    Cons

    Immobile middle management means being handled with caution. Quite a few peers have left in a small window of time due to the "stinginess" of management however not every manager fits this mold.

    Advice to Management

    Employ bottoms up reviews, not just the more bland departmental surveys if you want a true picture of what hinders employee engagement.

    I worked at Rush University Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Only worked late a handful of times in 1.5 years
    -Had my own office
    -Worked with a lot of analytics
    -Great colleagues outside my own department
    -You will meet and work with some great medical staff members who genuinely care about patients and the community

    Cons

    -Luckily I came from a data driven job so I already had a large amount of training. If you need training DO NOT work here. You will just be micromanaged and will NEVER learn anything.
    -If you want to make enough money to live a decent life in Chicago - keep moving
    -Poor employee development pathways for everyone especially those lower on the ladder
    -Micromanagement in the strategic planning, marketing, and program development leads to high turnover and very poor employee satisfaction (5 people have left in the past 2 years)
    -Often you'll find incompetent leadership and colleagues due to a lack of pay and advancement pathways
    -Extremely rude leadership in the strategic outreach office creates extreme difficulties and spineless management will throw lower employees under the bus repeatedly instead of taking responsibilities for mistakes
    -Rush is silo-ed so if you think you can just leave a department, think again
    -Partnering with the finance department is like pulling teeth because everyone there is demoralized because they know how much they get payed compared to the medical staff

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of leadership in both strategic planning and strategic outreach. Find competent leaders that have worked in healthcare consulting. Pay them a decent salary and watch the results boom. Rush is primed for success but not its current team.
