    I have been working at University of Kansas Medical Center (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Worked 3-4 12 hours shifts a week. you are able to build you schedule.

    Cons

    Some of the nurse managers are rude and disrepect hardworking PCA's. Basically impossible to take PTO unless you do so MONTHS in advance. You are reprimanded for being sick. Basically, if you call in sick too many times you will be fired.

    Advice to Management

    be more understanding and help out on the floor

  8. "no transparency, though promised. unappreciative, unfair employer."

    I have been working at University of Kansas Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    i love the patients. other than that, there really are no pros. struggling just to reach the 20 word minimum...

    Cons

    you will never get a pay rise. be prepared for surprises, like secretive and spontaneous positions being “open.” they’ll be filled, and that’s when you’ll learn it ever existed.

    Advice to Management

    replace all management. sad, discouraging place to work

    Pros

    KUMC offers health, dental and eye coverage. The employer does match 8.5% of your salary into a 403b mandatory plan. 50,000 defaulted life insurance coverage.

    Cons

    Working in research your salary is considered "soft" money. Meaning your PI needs to have grant funding to cover your salary. The health insurance premiums and/or deductible go up every year. Last year it went from $500 to $1000.
