    Pros

    Dirt cheap benefits package, a lot of educational benefits (reimbursement and pre-payment), county pays pretty good versus other institutions.

    Cons

    Upper management is somewhat of a joke. Directors are constantly leaving and being replaced. Departments are being moved under new directors more often than they should. Co-workers or other employees that are in patient care are horrible. This hospital is rated #7 in the city for customer service, that says a lot about who it employs.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the 5% increase, treat your employees better, and quit making so many changes in upper management.

    Working as a Transfer Specialist was a very rewarding experience. Where I learned about the process that a patient goes thru; since birth, all procedures thru life, admissions, rehab till death. Worked together with Social Worker and Case Management to supplied with all the patient need. Also translating from English to Spanish where requested.

    I planned to retired from University Hospital. Unfortunately My Dad got sick and I took a leave of absence and later an early retirement. I tried to apply again and has been very difficult. My record was and a very good standing.

    Advice to Management

    Only that I believed they favor people that has been there for a long time and in returned they favor them. I thought that my work will speak by it self.

    I have been working at University Health System part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Mainly the people, most are very friendly. The hours that are offered are also very nice. Since I am still in school during the mornings, I work second shift without any issues.

    Cons

    Due to a hiring freeze there are some days that we are shorthanded in the lab. This same reason also means that its easily possible to rack up way more than 40 hours a week, especially if working weekends. That can be a con or a pro depending on how you see it.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to hire more people so that all the shifts can be adequately covered. Otherwise the hospital is ran very well. Can't wait for the new tower to open.
