    I worked at The University of Kansas Health System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent retirement package, average pay for the job titles. Some of the people are really enjoyable to work with. Depending on your department, you may be in a 1950s-era brick structure with poor ventilation, or a sparkling new clinic with all the amenities.

    Cons

    Poor middle and upper management - the executives seem determined to buy up every struggling hospital in the state, in some cases in partnership with out-of-state for-profit companies. Building the new hospital towers and continuous renovation of some areas, while cutting costs by slashing benefits and presenting a pervasive attitude of clinical-areas-above-all-else. There is a steep divide between the lower and middle management tiers of non-clinical areas, with considerable pressure applied to just-make-it-work-at-all-costs.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be the next MD Andersen / Johns Hopkins, or whatever it is you're striving to emulate, and focus on providing competent care to the people of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas. Most of your core employees live there, after all.
