      Honestly, I like working at KUMC.

      Pros

      I work in a collegial, supportive department/division that values staff at all levels and values work/life balance (at least at my level). Culture of achievement, integrity, and leadership from my low-level perspective. The institution overall is earnest in DEI efforts from the top level, e.g. holding space for discussions, providing employee assistance (program) support, responding to current events, and not shying from naming a DEI issue on campus and leading change, which is not to say that they think they are perfect in this regard. Took the pandemic and COVID-19 safety and support seriously while still shooting for achievement. Seeks and listens to employee feedback.

      Cons

      It's academic science, so the pay is lower for research positions than in industry. Parking could be expensive unless you park farther away, but there is a shuttle and escort service. Campus is a bit of maze, but at least you can get most places across campus without going outside!

      Depends on the department

      Pros

      For staff: Annual contracts (which can be canceled at anytime for performance reasons, but at least you know your position was budgeted for a year) Impactful work potential

      Cons

      People don't leave jobs, they leave bad managers, and at a large organization like KUMC, you'll find competent and incompetent, honest and dishonest, competitive/unsupportive and fostering managers. Do your homework.

      Pros

      Good hospital to network and if you want to continue with school in medical professions.

      Cons

      Understaffed so you’ll feel over worked. Nurses are not the friendliest and management is not always the best.

      Pros

      The School of Medicine Finance team is filled with the most competent employees you could wish to have and makes me want to stay for the long haul. Benefits are crazy good.... it's government.

      There are good benefits and you it feels good to know you have a job that is secure.

      Management depending on your personality either way they need a revaluation because it's not what KU stands for.
