    I have been working at University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System full-time

    Pros

    Great pay and the benefits are wonderful. Plenty of paid time off and generous retirement plans, including a pension. The patients are really kind and a joy to work with. The hospital serves some of the neediest community and commits to health equity.

    Cons

    Much of the system suffers from a severe lack of organization and communication. There is apathy throughout the workforce and it can be contagious. The politics can be a challenge to navigate.

    I worked at University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits that is about it!

    Cons

    You have no supplies, little to no equipment to do your work. The units don't even have silverware for your patients, you make your own seizure pads (patient safety risk) and pillows. Rundown facility with holes in the walls and broken stuff just about in every room. Not staffed adequately. Not worth risking your license over!

    I worked at University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - As in any state university jobs, pension, and the ability to study for free/partially paid. - Consistently the same type of work.

    Cons

    - A lot of walking and traveling (involves running around the entire hospital system, clinics are offsite which involves driving) - Tedious work (many issues are resolved easily by Active Directory policies, but they do not implement) - Lack of training/direction (do not expect to be helped) - Involves hospital rooms (expect to wear a hospital gown or protective coverings)
