UChicago Medicine experience report

  • 20.May 2019
  • Employee

Working for the University of Chicago is great. It all depends on which department you work in.

4.00

Company Culture

Very diverse environment to work in

Support from management

Not always. In fact I sometimes feel like I know more than my own boss.

Teamwork

Most of the time, we work individualy but as we all know, there is no "I" in team.

Freedom to work independently

For the most part, everyone works on their own, we each have a way of doing things but we also know how to work as a team.

Internal Communication

As with most jobs, communication is key, while the University as a whole is a great at communicating certain information, your section or department isn't always as efficient.

Gender Equality

I believe that men are getting paid more than women

Attitude towards older colleagues

I think after a certain age, the company tries to get you to quit or retire because they can't keep up with the new technology.

Career Development

For someone like me, there aren't really many advancement opportunities

Overall compensation for your work

For the amount of work I do, and the benefits I receive, I think my compensation is fair.

Office / Work Environment

Work spaces are not functional

Environmental Friendliness

does little to no effort to encourage people to recycle

Work-Life Balance

Personal days are offered, and leaniancy is great.

Company Image

I've come a long way and proud to be an employee

Handicapped Accessibility

For a hospital, I don't believe that this facilty is very handicap accessible.

Workplace Safety

There is some safety training and testing done on a regular or annual basis

Challenging Work

Older systems currently in use provide a challenge in getting work completed in an efficient manner.

Inclusive / Diverse

It's very one sided if you ask me.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would like to have an incentive program that gives the employees of the month a bonus such as paid parking for a month, a cash bonus, or even some meal vouchers. I would also like to improve our accounting system and the way we present accounting information to our faculty.

What I like about the company

I have great benefits and flexible work hours. Salary is fair and employee events can be fun.

What I dislike about the company

Parking for employees is just horrible. You either have to pay a few hundred bucks to park close or park blocks or even miles away. Management isn't the greatest and when they ask for feedback from employees, nothing ever really changes. Also, the systems our out of date and work doesn't get completed as accurately as they should be.
