    Pros

    I enjoyed the collaborative environment and on going educational opportunities. The schedule allowed for a good work/life balance. As a nurse it's always nice to be in a teaching hospital setting.

    Cons

    The absence policy is terribly strict and is so punitive that many staff were force to work sick in order to keep their jobs. I knew of several people, with serious contagious illnesses, who felt forced to come in. We worked with a vulnerable population and I was constantly worried that we'd make our patients sick.

    Advice to Management

    Hear the feedback that is shared at exit interviews and act quickly to make KU Med a safer place for patients and staff. Your absence policy is archaic and should be trashed. You are loosing good nurses, forcing others to work sick, and putting patients at risk.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Great co-workers. Reputation.

    Cons

    Health IT management are set in their ways. There are a lot of micromanagers at the executive and director/assistant director level. Team managers are better. Low compensation with adequate benefits. In general you work a 40-hour week, but this is highly dependent on managers style and ethics.

    Advice to Management

    Health IT management are set in their ways. There are a lot of micromanagers at the executive and director/assistant director level. Team managers are better. Need better oversight of lower managers. They have too much latitude resulting in unfair work practices.

    Pros

    Excellent Hospital and employee benefits. There are many specializations and quality staff to meet just about every need you might have.

    Cons

    Application process to work at UKH is very long and drawn out. The process took over 3 months from my initial application submission to being offered a job and an orientation date.

    Advice to Management

    I would highly recommend more talent acquisition employees or some recruitment management to help expedite the application and hiring process.
