    Pros

    The health care at present is decent, but the 2018 changes and options are not good.

    Cons

    Managers are Teflon coated - there are no repercussions for their bad behavior. When complaints were made in regards to management behavior that was in violation of employee rights, management protected management and nothing happens.
    Terrible raises and severely below-the-national-average for salary.
    Hideously low morale - caused by heavy-handed management and mismanagement.
    Managers who should not be in leadership positions - while this takes place everywhere, UNMC is rife with it. Once a bad manager is in place, it takes an Act of Congress to remove the person.
    Poor practices - there is an attitude of :"I know this is broken and inefficient, but we're going to proceed as this is what we've always done."
    Cultural Values are on par with the 1950's and change is resisted by the University instead of embraced.
    Zero career opportunity to move around within the organization unless you're a Nurse or Doctor.
    No Work/Life balance - part of the compensation package is paid sick leave, but you get penalized for using it.
    Financial instability of the organization and the massive budget deficit restricts raises and job opportunities within the organization and looming job cuts have many ready to jump ship.
    Do More With Less/One Campus One University beaten to death and poorly applied - it's laughable to eliminate a role and expect one person to do the roles of two people. Yet there are repeated higher paying roles in management that are wholly unnecessary.
    Unnecessary repeated meetings that rehash the obvious and plans of actions.

    Advice to Management

    People can work anywhere - you need to start treating your employees better. Get rid of bad management. Once you log enough complaints and identify a manager as a problem, remove & replace them as you would an hourly employee.
    Want to cut your budget? Try applying the slim method to the members of management and make them do more with less and disallow the trickle down theory with their responsibilities. Why have multiple managers doing the same tasks on so many small teams? There are so many Directors that it feels like none of them are in sync with one another.
