    I have been working at University of Utah Hospitals & Clinics part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay. Great Boss! I love my job.

    Cons

    Sometimes can be boring but sometimes there's always something new to learn.

    It's not easy to move up because everybody love their job so ... No position open to move up. When the big boss retired that's the time everybody move up because position starts to open.

    Pros

    -Amazing Providers
    -Great patients and families
    -Decent wage

    Cons

    No oversight of clinic managers
    HR rep and manager are friends, so no one feels comfortable filing complaints

    Advice to Management

    When a clinic (Pediatrics, Clinic 6) has nearly 80% of it’s staff overturn in such a short period of time, maybe check in with the employees that are still there to see what’s going on and how we can be better supported. Even exit interviews of those leaving would be helpful. I assure you there is a reason. It’s not coincidence that everyone found new jobs within a few months. We continue to “do great” according to the EPE scores and we get a pretty little plaque to hang on our wall. Maybe when you guys bring by our plaque and treats and read good patients reviews, you should spend that time talking to staff and getting their feedback.

    Also, building a brand new building right next to the school of medicine, but not having enough space for half the outpatient clinics is ridiculous. You make enough money to change the logo, maybe spend some of it on ensuring your patients will have clinics to be seen in after the building is torn down. This also causes major concern with staff. At this point, we speculate we may be losing our jobs and our providers will be dispersed out to community clinics. We don’t see another possible outcome since the Univeristy apparently doesn’t make room for the clinics that aren’t performing surgeries and bringing in big money.

    Lastly, parking. WTF!? Get it together. Employee parking is a joke. Patient parking sucks just as bad. We lose patients constantly due to them not being able to find parking. Patients are constantly late due to parking, some are turned away, others are seen but it puts everyone’s schedule behind. Use those brains that created the new “University of Utah Health” brand and logo, and fix the parking. All those brilliant minds have to have a solution somewhere.

    Pros

    Good benefits with health insurance and 401 matching.

    Cons

    The security of your job depends on your manager. I had the best and the worst managers while working at the U for almost 11 years.

    Advice to Management

    New managers need to be the trained by a seasoned manager with good people skills.

    Management is terrible. Had a friend who had been there for 3 years and they were paying her less than what they were paying me!

    Pros

    I feel like they care about their employees and try to it so everyone can succeed.

    Cons

    Worked in a call center and they tracked everything.

    Advice to Management

    Try to make it so your employees are more fluid. Having to follow a formula for a call seems kinda of silly and can come off sounding very robotic to the patients.

    I worked at University of Utah Hospitals & Clinics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love the innovative nature of an academic medical institution. The executive leadership team is approachable and responsive. Excellent health and retirement benefits.

    Cons

    After working at UUHC for 5+ years, I have hit a ceiling in my upward mobility to management, even with Masters degrees in healthcare management. HR's requirements have become so impossibly rigid that young, talented leaders are taking their knowledge and skills to other organizations to get management experience and the much-needed pay bump to accommodate the student loans taken on to attain a Masters level education. This is a mistake I think the organization will realize when their pool for entry-level management positions consists only of staff with Bachelors degrees who have been there for 10+ years and have known no other way of daily operations; innovation will be squashed and home-grown talent will leave to other organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Look at candidates as a whole, and what they bring to the table aside from an arbitrary number for years of experience. I value promoting from within, but not when Masters level candidates are being beat out for entry-level managerial positions by Bachelors level candidates with no other experience except within UUHC. You are literally chasing away talent and thwarting the growth of the organization by promoting individuals who are unable to advance past entry-level management positions because they only have Bachelors degrees. As an academic medical institution, I have seen little value placed on education when it comes to career advancement.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and training. Felt supported by unit management and hospital administration. Focus on evidence-based practice and teaching. Would recommend to anyone.

    Cons

    The main hospital is not easily accessible for those who commute from anywhere other than downtown SLC. Free access to public transit was a provided benefit, but using this option doubled my commute time.
