    The IT culture is flexible and the coworkers are hard-working and intelligent. The benefits are pretty good, especially vacation time.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at UW Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Residency program, great team at The American Center, state benefits, pay

    Cons

    Top down management, "shared governance" leaves more to be desired, more worried about cost than patient and staff satisfaction, often worked understaffed. You will lose all accrued sick time if you resign and don't return to the organization within one year.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at UW Health full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent, caring & skilled service providers, comprehensive care, decent vacation and sick leave.

    Cons

    Employees and their concerns are not priority for the bureaucracy of the hospital business. There are high expectations with little room for flexibility. Depending on the level of management the culture can be toxic. Too much expected of providers outside of direct patient care and the burden keeps increasing which leads to poor patient care and burnout.
