Environmental Services Housekeeping Assistant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILSeptember 11, 2013
Working at the University of Chicago Medical has taught me to appreciate life more. While I was working there i was assigned to clean the intensive care unit(ICU) and i would just try to smile as hard i could to cheer the patient up as i could. I love my management and my 3rd shift team.

Highly political; toxic at times
Project Manager (Former Employee), Chicago, ILSeptember 8, 2013
Pros: pay, medical insurance, 403b, vacation time
Cons: highly political, cya cultare, hyde park seems unsafe
Great learning opportunity working with very smart and talented people. A competitive culture which I found hard to trust others as well as collaborate better. Somewhat fast paced and very structured - you have to go through layers to get things done. Hardest part of the job is making sure you don't step on any toes or else you are done for. Making – more... an example of people in meetings is the norm. – less

Busy University Hospital
MRI Technologist, MRI Manager (Current Employee), Chicago, ILJune 15, 2013
Univeristy of Chicago Hospital is a busy place that performs many new techniques that your community hospital doesnt have the resources to fund.

You get to work with some amazing doctors, but you also have the sickest of sick patients.

Working at University of Chicago is enjoyable but challenging at times. Enjoyable due to co-workers and the sense of team work and family. The specific patient population I care for can be quite challenging but seeing patients do well, makes my work extremely satisfying.

Housekeeping assistant III (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 19, 2013
Pros: the salary was good and the friendly people i saw and worked with on a daty to day basis.
Cons: when the supply shipment didn't make it in.
The shift started with me throwing away the trash and replacing garbage bags, I cleaned bathrooms while the doctors were still in their offices and after they leave for the day I would sweep offices and wipe down desk. Management was great they gave out the assignments and left us to do our schedule and if I needed anything i just called and they would – more... supply it. my coworkers were friendly and helpful when help was needed. the hardest part of the job was getting the job done when the supplies were limited. the most enjoyable part was being able to give the doctors a clean and comfortable office to see their patients in. – less

Liver Transplant Social Worker (Current Employee), Chicago, ILFebruary 16, 2013
The University of Chicago Hospital was a great place to work and learn the ins and outs of transplant. The transplant team is really committed to the patients. The management didn't always understand the role of the social worker, which often made day to day tasks difficult. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the patients and helping – more... them throughout the transplant process. – less

Building Manager (Former Employee), Chicago, ILDecember 18, 2012
Pros: very good benefits such as pension, vacation, holidays and transportation.
Cons: safety was sometimes an issue regarding thefts and other crime walking to and from work.
I had a very pleasant experience working for the University of Chicago Medical Center. Our jobs were outsourced. However, the medical center was a very pleasant place to provide service. A typical day involved meeting with the customers, rounding throughout the area of my responsibility communicating with the employees, monitoring their performance – more... and providing feedback and directions as needed. I had very professional co-workers especially the building managers who managed other areas. The hardest part of the job was encouraging a small percentage of the customers to have better pride in the building's ambience. Most of the customers were very cooperative; yet a small percentage required lots of gentle encouragement to respect the cleanliness of the work space. – less
