    I worked at The University of Kansas Health System full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, hours and pay

    Cons

    Unfair management that doesn't treat everyone equally and doesn't follow policy you are expected to follow, hasn't actually done the work themselves so uneducated on what you do yet is your supervisor, other coworkers on same level and title as you grading your work incorrectly . This was my supervisor specifically, her manager was great as were others.

    Advice to Management

    Find supervisors without favoritism that don't throw tantrums when things don't go their way or they are challenged, we were told to challenge but that obviously wasn't received well.

    I worked at The University of Kansas Health System part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The department I worked in was well managed and they cared for the employees under them. They were willing to work with people on their schedule as well as opportunities to move to other departments. Challenges were approached with a team like mentality and I felt as though my input was a necessity.

    Cons

    People tend to leave managers not companies. I was fortunate to be under a great manager. I left only because I had an opportunity I couldn't pass up.

    Pros

    This is a growing organization that is bringing on new hires all the time. The IT organization is expanding to meet the needs of the Health System. This is a lot to learn and I'm working with a great group of people that are dedicated to their jobs.

    Cons

    Since it's growing rapidly, there are growing pains in determining procedures and also ownership. They are also expanding from one main location to multiple locations, and also acquiring existing health systems, so integration is an issue.

    I don't see a direct correlation between performance and pay, as everyone gets a market adjustment to their salary yearly.

    Pros

    Support of leadership is inherent. I've experienced very fair pay practices, even seeing pay grades change for the better due to market analysis. The IT group is growing incredibly fast and working hard to mature. It's amazing to have the growht opportunities I've always wanted. After working in a micro-management-focused organization, UKHS feels like the shackles have been removed. The only obstacle to my own growth is me. It's just great. I never thought I'd be this excited about my future as an IT professional.

    Cons

    Maturation across the organization is sporadic. Many areas need to mature and be more agile and professional. IT finds itself owning and driving initiatives that should really be owned by “the business”. Some old "the way we've always done it" processes. That being said, I'm confident that most groups are working just has hard as IT to better continuously better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the support. Thank you for not treating IT like a "black hole" cost center.
