Very diverse, education facility that was very hands on.
Clinical Student (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – February 17, 2014
I learned an unimaginable amount of information from being a clincal student at the University of Kansas Medical Center. I rotated through a lot of different modalities and by the end of my year there I could do almost anything without asking for help from the Technologist that was supervising me. I loved being in surgery as well as the orthopedic clinic. There was so much to learn and so many great people to teach me.
Unless you want to ruin your career, especially this department...Move through people like hot cakes! Dismiss for no reason, people changing in others offices. Your on camera all the time, little trust and false documentation processes......Be careful
They'll hire you but put you in a position you did not apply for. Supervisors are just a title; their managers are the ones pulling the strings. Your supervisor can give you great feedback but the manager, who is RARELY there, will criticize you every chance they get. If you're the youngest or one of the youngest people there, they'll definitely find a way to run you out of there before you get a chance to quit. Most people who work at the Broadmoor location end up going back to their original position because there's no room for growth or advancement.
personal life flexibility
extremely discriminative against workers under 30, outdated workflow and systems
Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – April 12, 2017
At first it was a huge culture shock for the first 2-3 years. But it turned out to be the best learning experience of my life. I told people when asked what would make me go somewhere else, "when it gets boring , routine, or I quit learning." Well none of that happened, but I still had to make some changes. It was a really meaningful experience. Hard, but good.
Learning experience, good for a step in your career. I was happy with the pay.
Same as other "government" institutions (once removed)
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – April 1, 2017
A typical day at KU is very boring and frustrating. Supervisors don't know what they're doing and will take credit for the jobs you have done while trying to find things to fire you. Most definitely would not recommend unless trying to get into Police work.
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – March 13, 2017
Awful place to work. Great patient care, on some units. But AWFUL to the employees. Never ever work here. Ever! They do not give 2 hoots about you or your family if you are an employee; they only care about making their money and getting more "famous".
RN (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – February 7, 2017
I cannot say enough wonderful things about working here . The people are amazing and friendly. Nursing is respected and physicians work well with everyone . Very refreshing from where I came from! Tough to beat !!
Great hospital. Needs better department management
Neurodiagnostic Technologist (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – January 2, 2017
I would not work here again due to bullying. Great benefits, however, come in handy for counseling hours when you end up quitting. The nurses in ICU speak ill of nurses in relative units, food is overpriced, parking is a nightmare, pay is mediocre but looks great on a resume
