Reviews

Company Culture

My workplace is failry diverse culturally.

Support from management

I am somewhat supported by management.

Teamwork

We have to work independently but at the same time work together with our teammates.

Freedom to work independently

We have to be able to work well alone for the most part.

Internal Communication

We meet regularly to discuss goals and to stay updated on things.

Gender Equality

I feel the pay and hours are not suitable for women esp mothers. I feel like if it were a male dominated workplace things would be more fair , more giving.

Attitude towards older colleagues

No age discrimination. Older employees are valued.

Career Development

There is opportunity for financial help if someone wants to go back to school and further their education.

Overall compensation for your work

We are below the average for payscale both within the state and way behind on a national level.

Office / Work Environment

Our area could use some updating but overall it is acceptable.

Environmental Friendliness

Not too much emphasis placed in recycling here.

Work-Life Balance

We could do better working with parents...like job sharing, weekend only shifts etc

Company Image

Proud of the work we do here.

Job Security

Very stable, high demand for my position.

Handicapped Accessibility

All restrooms are handicapped accessible ,

Workplace Safety

Safety is held in high esteem here. We have yearly tests to make sure we are up to date on safety issues.

Challenging Work

Work is always a new situation, very challenging at times.

Inclusive / Diverse

There are committees set up just to share ideas.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make the schedule work for moms who want to job share or only work weekends. Provide an onsite daycare. Raise the pay and you will never be short of employees.

What I like about the company

The job is very rewarding. Benefits are very good.

What I dislike about the company

The low payscale. The refusal to work with young mothers on a more flexible schedule.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better parking and better originations to offer employee gratitude.

What I like about the company

Everyone is so nice and friendly and so very welcoming. They treat their parents just like family. No other place I would go for medical career or medical seeking as a patient.

What I dislike about the company

Parking. It could be way better. And patients not having to pay to park.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would improve them by having signs up if there is construction in the hospital to help patients and families better navagate through the hospital more efficiently. And of course put more recycle bins throughout the hospital and be more eco friendly.

What I like about the company

Working for the University of Tennessee is great especially if you are a student looking to get a job there. They are a teaching hospital and really know how to break everything down for you. That’s what happened to me I was a student and after graduation they hired me straight in! Such a great opportunity!

What I dislike about the company

There is always construction which is good but bad too if your trying to find yourself around the hospital or to get there on time. And there isn’t hardly enough recycle bins anywhere on site!
