Claims Assessor (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 8, 2015
Management was inefficient, I did not receive a monthly review, and I was told to not ask anyone else for assistance besides my supervisor, and even my supervisor wasn't helpful.
I did like some of my co-workers and some of them did help me when I asked them to, given that I've never done this type of work before. They were willing to help me more than some of the managers were, and they were very friendly.
Financial Assessor (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 9, 2016
A typical day is very busy. I learned a lot about insurance companies, and the co-workers were very friendly. Management is new and still learning the companies policy and procedures. The most enjoyably part of the job is it is never a boring day.
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 17, 2015
Did not have a working computer until 1.5 weeks after start date, worked with very antagonistic people who treated you as if you had no intelligence or experience, supervisor should not have had such a role supervising others
Lead, Par Contact Center (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 17, 2014
Typical day I answer calls when assistance in needed. I have learned alot about call center managment and supervisory duties. My co-workers enjoy my leadership skills. The hardest part of the job had been helping new Cancer patients that have been recently diagnosed. I love being able to help people and display my exceptional customer service skills.
Very interesting work in university hospital setting with desirably diverse culture.
Clinical Nurse (Former Employee) – OB/GYN/REI; Chicago, IL – February 18, 2014
Provided pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative care to women undergoing certain surgical procedures with focus on assisted conception for infertility clients.
Patient population was diverse, and caring for and interacting with them was very rewarding in innumerable ways.
As in almost any workplace, one's experience is largely dependent on one's attitude and ability to filter through the valuable: i.e. lessons learned, positive differences made, and the less useful political and personality dramas that inevitably take place.
There are many very talented people at Northwestern but the culture for nurses is still regressive compared to that of a medical setting in which nurses have adequate representation as in the state of California.
cutting edge medical research and practice
many enormous egos; lack of adequate true representation for nurses such as employees' unions.
Contract Compliance Auditor (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 14, 2013
As a contract compliance auditor, I was able to work with a variety of departments within the organization to assist in technological issues within the billing operating system as well as work collaboratively and collectively together to resolve claims not paid according to contract. More importantly, I had the pleasure in working and meeting with a variety of provider relations representatives from various insurance companies to resolve contract disputes.
Administrative Secretary (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 16, 2013
Northwestern Memorial Hospital was the most interesting, most stimulating position in my career. I worked for three Hepatologists who prepared patients for liver transplant and three support nurses who kept weekly and monthly track of their conditions. I learned a lot about how hospitals functioned. Management was a little loose, leaving me to solve problems on my own, which enabled me to use a lot of my skills independently. The hardest part of the job was the volume of work produced by six people. The most enjoyable part of the job was being in an exciting medical environment. There was always something happening!
I find it very difficult to get into Northwestern. I have healthcare experience in Medical Billing and Coding. I've been applying since last year and haven't received any feedback. I even applied for a position that you are currently employed in. How did you go about applying and obtaining your position?
