    Pros

    I have worked here for over 2 years. They have great benefits and offer tuition discounts for full time employees

    Cons

    You have to buy an expensive parking pass to park for work unless you take public transit, which is free with your employee badge.

    Pros

    A lot of benefits, pay is decent.

    Cons

    While medically speaking, the U is very innovative. From a administrative side, however, there is a lot of bureaucracy and red tape that creates barriers and challenge to get things done. As a young professional, it can also be a challenge to contribute in a meaningful way when the executive board is incredibly conservative, set in their ways, and predominately male. Was told very early on to 'remember my place,' and have received hand slaps for speaking up and challenging the 'just the way we do things,' mentality. The U is obviously an incredible organization, and I can understand why they want to maintain their ways, but I can't even get people to use a project management tool because they don't want to learn a new tool (that could really improve our processes and solve team problems, I might add).

    The organization is very big, which results in a lot of small departments/teams who work in silos. This makes growth opportunities incredibly difficult. If I want to grow my career, I will need to leave my department and seek a different position within the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Combine teams and provide more opportunities for growth. Don't be so resistant to change and learning new ways to do things.

    Pros

    Great benefits, including health insurance, gym discounts, 401k, discounts to local businesses. There is a strong emphasis in education, where they will help you maintain certifications, give extra training, and provide amazing courses. Work environment completely depends on which department you work for. There is a program called "Imagine Perfect Care" where any employee can submit ideas to improve the hospital. Upper management even recognizes these efforts, and I think that program gives a lot of unity to the organization.

    Cons

    Giving parking to employees was evidently not a priority of the University of Utah. They provide UTA passes, paid parking lot (far away from hospital requiring shuttle) or a free parking lot (even further away from hospital and the waiting list to get this pass is endless), but as an employee who worked unusual clinical hours, these options were just not helpful. I felt that they didn't value their employees this way.
    The University of Utah does not pay as well as other hospitals in the area, like IHC hospitals.

    Pros

    The BEST place I've ever worked, only left due to relocation for significant others job. Very clean and well-maintained hospital. Staff at all levels were amazing. Enjoyed working and learning with the residents. Nice to have all hands on deck when there's an emergency. The best teamwork I have ever experienced! Truly miss that place. Plus got to love the 24hr full-service Starbucks in the main lobby!

    Cons

    Pay is lower than average for nurses in the US.
