    I have been working at University of Iowa Health Care full-time

    Pros

    Great work environment.
    The people who work alongside and above you have all been fantastic and supportive.
    Superb benefits.

    Cons

    The University is getting their budget cut, so raises are not as good as they used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, and continue to support the staff.

    I worked at University of Iowa Health Care full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits. Nice work facility.

    Cons

    Atrocious leadership. Below-market pay. Advancement/opportunities based on favoritism, not merit.

    Advice to Management

    When absorbing another company, perhaps try not to let your personal vendetta with C-level leadership be taken out on frontline staff who have just been put through the wringer with three major go-lives in the span of less than half a year.

    I worked at University of Iowa Health Care full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great diverse group of people, benefits were really great. Vacation policy was very generous, job duties were clearly outlined and expectations were clear. Pay was good.

    Cons

    Too many levels of management, most without many answers to questions. I worked in the food department for the patients, and the food wasn't good quality, so I felt bad sending it to patients.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the food quality served to patients. Treat people like people, not numbers. Understand that even bottom-level employees have things going on outside work and give them some slack once in a while.

    Pros

    Excellent place to work. Great co-workers and work environment. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    I commuted so the drive plus work shift was 13 - 15 hours.

    I worked at University of Iowa Health Care full-time

    Pros

    Faculty and staff, and wonderful fringe benefits.

    Cons

    Unethical management that is removed and uncommunicative with the employees they manage. Decisions are based on keeping up appearances with shiny buildings and equipment, with no appreciation for its employees. No access to continued education funds while bureaucratic waste runs rampant.

    Advice to Management

    There is gross incompetence throughout this organization, and hire and promotions are not based on merit. Talent is unappreciated and underpaid, which is a large part for the revolving door turnover throughout the organization. Very toxic culture because of toxic organizational leadership. How bad do things need to get before someone at the top is willing to do something about it?!

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent pay, and excellent leave policies if you wind up working under a good manager

    Cons

    This is an organization that has a lot of layers, but does not do a good job of retaining talent or identifying poor management and intervening. I have personally watched a lot of retaliation and poor management performance fester and lead to employee exits that could have easily been avoided by proper follow-up from HR or higher levels of leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people like human beings, not robots. Don't use politics to target employees that are simply asking questions and looking for transparency in decision-making.
