    I worked at University of Kansas Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefit package is decent.

    Cons

    Hours, training, policies written and unwritten need to be updated and streamlined. Salary is not enough for what you have to deal with. Senior mgmt, most shift supervisors and a few leads play Favorites BIG time. The department has been understaffed for over 5 years. No work life balance. They will blacklist you or give an "unfavorable" review so you can't transfer to another department.

    Advice to Management

    Everything is outdated and needs an upgrade! Listen to your staff, speak up to executives about the real working conditions and work to actually improve the department.
