    I have been working at UW Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart, good people who believe in mission of patient care
    Decent benefits

    Cons

    Changes in C-suite and HR stuff in recent years have changed the culture.. Used to be good place to work, don't care about employees any more. Long hours, gotcha culture, finger pointing and blame from arrogant senior leaders who create barriers for those doing the work. Has turned into bad place to work which is sad as the mission is meaningful and good. Shortstaffed everywhere, Lip service to caring about employees. Huge bureaucracy, very political-leaders throw each other and employees under the bus. Managers are constantly in meetings and working long hours-hard to support employees

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the way of the great employees who actually know the work-easy to sit above and make judgments and blame when you aren't actually doing the work and experiencing all the barriers to getting even simple things done.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at UW Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Health insurance and retirement package

    Cons

    -Limited room for transfers or advancement
    -Terrible Management
    -As a provider, I still have to interact with this company and have never dealt with ruder people who think they are better than you when trying to facilitate patient care
    -Poor access to care-if you can wait weeks or months, than you may get a visit
    -They are so far in debt because of constant construction that they are looking at employee layoffs
    -I've never worked anywhere where management felt so threatened by people doing advanced certifications or degrees

    Advice to Management

    Manage, don't micromanage
    Get advanced training beyond that of your employees
    Many managers get their jobs because no one else applies
