Teamwork

Your coworkers train you and you’ll need at least a bit of help from them to get you going. I rely on my coworkers, and have made very good friends while working here.

Freedom to work independently

My employer checks in on us very occasionally. They trust us to get the job done and to work together. My last employer (not at this company) did not do this, and would constantly hover. The difference in work quality and willingness to be at work is incredible and I feel like I have much more room to do great things at this company.

Career Development

Since I’ve been here, I have had at least 3 opportunities that have supported growth and development in my career.

Overall compensation for your work

I could probably ask to raise my wage as since it was raised I’m now doing more than my job technically requires. But I do think it’s a very good wage regardless.

Environmental Friendliness

All of the cups and straws are recyclable and break down much faster than plastic (or at least that’s what it claims as I haven’t actually tested it).

Work-Life Balance

Similarly to many employees, I go to school full time as well as work full time. For the most part, this company is very flexible and willing to work with that (with advanced notice of course).

Company Image

Such great people work here. It’s a giant team and everyone is just so nice and willing to help.

Workplace Safety

We just had more training to prevent accidents from occurring or to help us be prepared if they do, and it helps a lot. Also getting re-certified every year doesn’t hurt.

Challenging Work

I think there are levels to the jobs that I’ve had the privilege of working in. I’ve mastered and am currently mastering skills within my job and it can be very challenging at times, with so much to learn and such a large learning curve for me. Despite it being pretty challenging, I honestly love it. I love a good challenge and I know I can do it and people believe in me.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think what could be good for everyone is to get more training with people that we work with/around. For example, maybe getting more training with insurance if you talk to insurance a lot, etc.

What I like about the company

There’s a lot of diversity in my team and everyone works really great together. It’s a family here. We’re all willing to help each other out, and there’s lots of opportunities available in many forms.

What I dislike about the company

I disprove of when a (specific) employee has FMLA paid leave and they can’t fire him even though he constantly complains about his job, and constantly doesn’t show up to work on specific days that have become a pattern. I am annoyed they haven’t done much of anything about it.

What I like about the company

I have a wonderful management team that has become like family, the upper management I feel like could do better about competitive wages for our department given that our job is a unique position that is new and innovative. I would recommend them time and time again the health care benefits and other benefits are excellent. The management could be better about allowing better avenues for employees to move up in their current departments

What I dislike about the company

Equitable compensation for female employees who are already in a management position. It is tough to get equal compensation or any extra compensation as of now all evaluations are done by one department that evaluates sole based on years of experience instead of acts and abilities

Company Culture

After 20 years, I still love working for the U. I've been fortunate to have wonderful managers who are mentors.

Teamwork

Mostly I find manager support in assisting with colleague disagreements. Once in a while I see a breakdown in this support from management.

Freedom to work independently

I like working independently with no babysitting. I have sufficient oversight on project goals and outcomes. Deadlines are communicated effectively. The rest is up to me.

Internal Communication

Most large changes are communicated effectively. I see communication breakdowns from time to time with smaller, department specific decisions. It's something they continue to work on.

Gender Equality

IT is one area where there are more female leaders than in other organizations.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I have heard there are those who perceive unfair treatment of those of an older generation, but in my years, I have not seen it.

Overall compensation for your work

I always want to earn more and there are times I feel undervalued (with compensation), but as a whole, I feel wages are fair.

Environmental Friendliness

Although we sometimes have to request recycle bins, we get a very quick response to the request.

Work-Life Balance

I am able to take time off for personal time whenever needed, with the exception of a few large projects. Vacation freezes (frosts) are communicated as soon as it is known they will take place.

Workplace Safety

6 months ago I would have said we are one of the safest employers, but of late, there have been attacks on campus and it makes for an uneasy feeling of safety. The hospital, itself, is quite secure, but other offsite locations have a more uneasy feeling.

Challenging Work

I feel mentally challenged most. I sit at my desk a lot, but enjoy working with staff and patients from time to time.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Improvements I would suggest would be a formal program to allow staff members to shadow other staff members in their day to day work duties. Billing, for example, could work side by side with a doctor or nurse for a week to see what kind of workflow they have. This type of program could help in not only empathy for the work all staff are doing, but also create a collaboration in bettering process and procedures. It's so easy to point the finger at another group of staff and feel they aren't meeting their obligations. Wouldn't it be nice to know more about what they do?

What I like about the company

I have spend my entire adult life working for the U Hospitals and Clinics. I have grown with the institution and love working here. I feel that I get to come to work and do what I love and help people be better. It is nice to like my job.

What I dislike about the company

I think HR can be difficult to work with. In the past, managers and directors had more say in who they would be willing to consider for employment. With changes in the past few years, HR makes all the decisions on who can and will be considered for employment, passing on certain resumes excluding others that qualify. It should be a more collaborative experience.
