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

    Pros

    payment is base in your experience so is good if you are an experience nurse

    Cons

    Corruption in management no chances of growing if you dont know someone even with education. Racism without consequences, worst department. Being in the float team is so far the worst experience, all department give you the worst assignments, and management sees you just a servant, you can be sick and stilll threat you to fire you if you miss work

    The work was rather simple and could have been more challenging.

    Pros

    I'm sorry, but there really are none

    Cons

    For anyone that is accustomed to a company that is open-concept desks/cubes, allows casual dress everyday, has a competent and diverse staff with an inclusive culture--you will want to run far away from here. I can't speak to the rest of the medical center, but marketing is like the red-headed step child here. The team has about 30-ish full time people, but there are way too many spoons in the pot and the structure will eventually catch up and break everything down. On top of this, don't expect any opportunities for advancement (unless you're an intern or a temp). Lastly, the location is separate from the MC, and not too safe--there was a shooting in daylight this past spring.
