I was employed at the University of Chicago Medical Center for 10 years. Training for your position is great. Co-workers are a lot of funny to work with. There is a high upper management turnover. I was fortunate enough to have work with so great managers that was very supportive and willing to train staff.
Great teaching institution
It hard to advance once in an entry level position

Opportunities working there as a student are second to none. Working with such brilliant minded people is something that every single individual, be them academically minded or not, should take advantage of. It can change your life.

as a teaching hospital, you are surrounded by a host of experts and incoming MDs that make it a great growth and learning environment. most enjoyable part of my job was the application of evidence based solutions to practice.
Patient Service Representative (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 25, 2017
Being in an urban community you are shown how to be effective as possible while treating patients with care. Some days you have patients that are very ill by that being said some come take their frustration out on staff. Being a staff member we are the first face they see and if our demeanor comes off incorrectly they have judged the entire institution. It is very diverse and the management some are better than others. The hardest part is physician personalities some are easy and friendly to work with and others are just do what is asked or required. The easiest part is being a team player my co-workers are the best
Volunteer (Former Employee) – chicago, Illinois – August 13, 2017
I worked in the children's hospital. I learned that it is important for children to have a distraction like playing while they are in the hospital. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to see the children have fun and laugh.
Administrative Coordinator-General Operating Room (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 6, 2017
Typical day was working in the GOR, with team of doctors and nurses. Learned how to order supplies in a timely manner. Management was very helpful. Workplace culture was filled with a lot of positive energy. The hardest part was getting lost on campus, when I first arrived. The most enjoyable part was meeting and working with Michelle Obama, before she became the first lady of the United States.
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 27, 2017
The workplace culture is very intense and you need to watch your back because there is a lot of talk/gossip. Also, there is a lot of pressure to excel at performance but you may not receive proper training to excel at your job.
Data Analyst (Current Employee) – Hyde Park, IL – July 19, 2017
Could be a great opportunity if leaders in your department are willing to invest in you. Hospital culture varies from department to department, but overall, this hospital expects perfection and doesn't know how to prioritize work for non-clinical staff
PSC (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 13, 2017
A typical day at the Forefront of Medicine is very exciting and awesome. You learn something new every day. I work with a excellent group of Doctors and Nursing Staff. Management is GREAT. My Directors and Managers are great with staff. They interact well with us and try to be fair in scheduling and etc. There isn't nothing I can say bad or negative about the workplace. The University of Chicago is definitely a great place to work and to learn.
