Job Work/Life Balance
Low turnover government hospital
System Administrator (Current Employee) – Ames, IA – December 29, 2017
Very autonomous workplace that tries to foster relationships and work-life balance, but tends to lack in efficiency, communication, and collaboration. Management are generally knowledgeable and genuinely care about staff, but have tendencies to be reactive rather than proactive. Pay is subpar and not merit-based, but health insurance plans are stellar and low-cost, and the retirement benefits include state of Iowa pension (after 7 years of vesting). However, this leads to a significant number of "lifers" who can sometimes get set in their ways, are mostly happy with "good enough", and make progress difficult sometimes. Overall it's a solid, safe, secure job in a college town.
Great benefits, friendly coworkers (mostly), and autonomous
Inefficient at times, lower than average pay, political
Monitor Technician (Former Employee) – Ames, IA – October 18, 2017
The workplace culture is very immature and unprofessional. Favoritism is exercised among those who are grandfathered in. The hardest part of the job is inconsistency with communications among staff. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting and serving the patients including family and visitors.
Diversity is challenged regularly, uncomfortable environment for those who are passionate about their jobs
