    I have been working at University of Chicago Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I think it is a great company to work for, the staff is very diverse and the work we do here at the University focuses on excellent customer care and patient safety.

    Cons

    Although there are career development plans in place, I feel like the company does not promote from within as much as they should. I think this defeats the purpose of tuition reimbursement and career advancement, if the opportunities never present themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Promote qualified people from within before bringing in outside candidates.

    I worked at University of Chicago Hospital full-time

    Pros

    - Staff works as team to provide best care for patients

    Cons

    - Severe lack of management. If you're OK managing yourself, then not a problem, but when situations would arise, management was MIA.

    Advice to Management

    - Hire management to manage.

    I have been working at University of Chicago Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is one of the best paying hospitals that I know of. Staff is very committed to giving excellent service to patients. Very caring staff. Also very clean hospital.

    Cons

    I hate having to drive an hour an half from my home (south side) traffic is so horrible coming to Chicago especially when there has been construction on the expressway for about 2 years now. There is absolutely no place to park unless you decide to pay up the $28 a day which makes no sense to pay for parking at my job. only free parking is about 3-4 blocks away which takes you a good 15 min to walk all the way to your building. Mind you parking 4 blocks away can and will get your car broken into. Chicago winters are horrible and having to walk those very long 4 blocks is exhausting. I have never seen an employment where you charge your employees to park to come to work very ridiculous if you ask me?? Also I understand this is a hospital but managers treat you worst than jail/ army. Each week they tell you when to come in, what time to go to lunch, what dept you'll be working at, they literally just tell you do this and do that & don't even take into effect that you do have a life outside this hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Be more mindful of employees needs when it comes to work schedule, I know this hospital goes by seniority and obeys it more than the Bible but common I think its also about being fair.

    I have been working at University of Chicago Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Supportive staff, welcoming and kind throughout the orientation and training process. A lot of interaction between the adult and children's hospital. Newer facilities. Many opportunities for furthering education and learning.

    Cons

    Lots of disconnect in mandatory training modules and monthly requirements from the Medical Staffing Office. I seem to get multiple incorrect noncompliance emails that never get sorted out despite emailing proof that I am compliant.

    Pros

    scheduling flexibility very useful for a pre-med student juggling many obligations
