    I worked at University of Kansas Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    State employees are given generous vacation and sick time. Low stress, very good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Projects move at an alarmingly slow pace and very frequently without any meaningful leadership direction. IT leadership micromanages employees and does not value forward thinking or progress driven staff. Empowering users that work, teach, research and learn within the organization is not a priority. Organizational goals are often blue-sky ideas without measurable or obtainable results. Specifically, IT leadership prohibits users from doing their tasks either directly or indirectly often dismissing them as troublesome departments who won't understand technology. However, a large sum of money is spent on consultants to steer the company in a better direction but with no noticeable results. Many times the consultants come to the same conclusion as the employees years earlier. Pay is not commensurate with experience nor competitive within the area.
