    I have been working at The University of Kansas Health System full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Pros

    Competitive benefits package, specifically healthcare if you stay within the organization.
    Great starting salary.
    Strong sense of pride in the company's mission.
    Consistent growth throughout the organization.

    Cons

    Lack of hands on training. Creates a definite challenge for new employees that are not self-driven.
    High rate of attrition, although I've found that's more a product of new opportunities rather than employee dissatisfaction.

    Keep up the great work!
