    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at University of Nebraska Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Research oriented, top application of behavior analytic principles in services provided, pays for school if you work full time, decent benefits for low pay compared to other companies in the metro area

    Cons

    Does not prioritize employee needs, work load typically too expansive to complete day-to-day or week-to-week and does not allow for "prioritizing time" to become a reasonable solution to managing workload, upper management unwilling to follow through with promises to reduce employee workload, amount of workload prevents you from developing skills through other opportunities (e.g., supervision of clients, supervision of technicians, research), burn out is not effectively managed from elevated positions which leave other employees vulnerable and unable to seek and access support, upper management is disjointed from the clinic environment and employees

    Advice to Management

    Reduce number of client hours per client, reduce the duration of time spent as a patient, increase the number of intakes and increase client turnover proportionally to maximize income, put employees first in order to ensure the best care for clients, follow the OPS holiday schedule barring summers in order to prevent burn out and allow employees to better care for themselves without risks (e.g., depleting vacation hours, worrying about taking vacation while client is in clinic), reduce the amount of case load on clinicians and technicians so that employees are better able to assist others when an employee is absent.

    Pros

    Good stable job with lots of challenging work. I believe in the mission of higher education and science research. The people at the institution are fantastic.

    Cons

    Poor public perception and poor longterm outlook. This combined with budget trouble and some unclear longer term objectives may make talent look elsewhere for employment. Technically a government agency so politics often get in the way.

    Advice to Management

    Too many top initiatives. Something's going to give.

    Pros

    I was employed and close to home.

    Cons

    No accountability
    Only interested in Money not employees
    If you brought in funds you could get away with murder
    Culture is lacking
    Compensation for non-faculty is under normal standards.

    Advice to Management

    Hold your faculty accountable!
    Don’t just make people who complain to HR go away.
    Listen to them.
    Hostile environments are rampant and you know about them. Stop ignoring them.
    Care about your employees.
    And i left on excellent terms and i would never work here again.
