What people are saying about UChicago Medicine

Cardiac Telemetry Technician
Cardiac Telemetry technician new hire. I’m from a small town in Georgia & I recently relocated to chicago. I have done a few interviews at uchicago, northwestern and select. I just want to know what salary range I should expect? I was getting paid $21/Hr but one hospital already gave me an offer of $18.25/HR & I asked if I could negotiate and they were going to get back to me on that. My rent in chicago is double than Georgia and I told that. Should I expect less or the same from other hospitals

The UChicago heart transplant program is one of the best programs in the US. The team of nurses, physicians, and surgeons (and all other staff involved in the multi-disciplinary team) work together to advocate for what is best for the patient. There is a nursing union that is the voice of the nursing staff to help promote safe staffing, staff safety, and proper salary/benefits.
The IT department is terrible. It is divided into two entities and one side will claim it is not their responsibility to fix something and you then have to contact the other, who then send you back to the first one. Nothing seems urgent when it comes to fixing an IT problem. Being a nurse might be a hinderance to be hired for certain positions even though being a nurse makes you a better qualified candidate. Administration often times has no clue what is happening at the lower levels of what they are administration for.

Good compensation and pay overall
Upper leadership is all a lie. They pretend to care about employees but at the end of the day, everyone is replaceable and it’s all about money. They’ll do anything to save a dollar and don’t really care about patient safety whatsoever. It’s a dangerous place to be as staff or patient.

Chicago is a great city. The other nurses were helpful
I feel like the nurses here had little to no power at all. Some of them really did not know what they were doing because they were not taught to think for themselves. Too many residents running around not knowing what they're doing with very little oversite. Dangerous situations in many instances. Nurses are treated like slaves. Everything about this place is difficult. Clocking in, ordering food for your patients the IV pumps suck, having to request every single medication from pharmacy. The parking is way too expensive Codes are an absolute nightmare and a disorganized messed, They double up on devices, even patients on ECMO in some cases. The educators and mid level managers were out of touch and not really qualified for their roles. I found them to just spout the typical corporate BS. No ancillary support at all.

Getting UChicago Medicine health benefits is amazing. My dependent paid a total of $45 for a necessary surgery. The institute itself can be helpful meaning it's so large that it becomes a sort of community. "Hey I work in this department, can your department help me with X?" "Sure! We're all UChicago." It also pays higher salaries for those in health research than other institutes that I've worked with. I'm a person with a diverse background and haven't had any experiences with prejudice as I have in other workplaces.
HR is a nightmare. It usually takes no less than 5 weeks to start once you've interviewed (not applied). And they can be unclear in their directions. They also don't alway prioritize the employee. An example of this is when an error made an employee not receive their paycheck and there was no hustle to get the person paid ASAP - they just slowly waited like it was another task on a to-do list. Additionally, it's a large institute so lots of bureaucracy and red tape with people in leadership who you never meet.

You learn a lot as it is a level one trauma center, everyone’s is always ready to help need be.
Staff could use support from management, management lacks organizational and communication skills.1
