Pros: meet a lot of great, smart people. the place is huge.
Cons: if you prefer a flat organization, this is not the place for you. the chain-of-command is in full effect here.
It's an academic, non-profit, very political institution. Enough said.

Productive call-center setting
New Patient Coordinator (Current Employee), Chicago, ILAugust 28, 2013
Typical day at work consists of 8 hours of being on the phones talking to patients and families newly diagnosed with cancer. I have learned much about cancer types and treatments. I work with a wonderful group of diverse women with the same zest for helping patients and their families. The hardest part of the job is gathering all the necessary items – more... in such a short period of time for a productive appointment. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping the patients and their families – less

highly dysfunctional and lacks the ability to change
Manager (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 8, 2013
Pros: easy job - you will basically be underemployed, no need to work long hours, ok pay
Cons: bad benefits, no parking, for the most part poor facilities, overall lack of cleanliness, rude staff
The University of Chicago Medicine is a highly disorganized place where decisions are seemingly made on a whim, only to be changed a day, a week, or a month later. This leads to great inefficiencies and causes a lack of progression. They struggle with simple tasks that other hospitals overcame easily years ago. I think the biggest testimony to the overall – more... perception of this place is its inability to land a donor for their new hospital. – less

Care coordination dept in need of better management-other departments maybe better areas to work in
Certified Case Manager (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 5, 2013
Overall the hospital is not a bad place to work. The people are friendly and you will learn a lot. However, the care coordination dept is very disorganized. There has been no consistent management. It is very stressful w/ favoritism given to job assignments. Some employees leave on time and able to get lunch outside of eating at their desks whereas – more... others may put in 10-12 hours/day and still be told "you are not doing enough". Work/life balance for these workers does not exist. – less

Pros: great health insurance
A typical day at work at the Unversity of Chicago Medicine it is a very high demand job you must learn how to work under pressure and be very productive.

Financial Business Representative (Current Employee), Chicago, ILNovember 8, 2012
Pros: feeling that you make a difference with patients, good benefit package
Cons: severe cronyism, no loyalty to employees, pay not commensurate to education, skill & experience, no job security, no employee development programs/opportunities
A positive place of employment due to community involvement, public service opportunities and charity. Negative social climate for minorities although some efforts are being made to rectify this problem. Severe cronyism and personal agenda in this organization.

WORKING AT UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MEDICINE
Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee), Chicago, ILNovember 7, 2012
Pros: great benefits; tuition reimbursement; great management and teamwork and excellent place to work.
Cons: difficult to move up; you can but it will take a while.
I have been working for the University of Chicago Medical Center for ten years; each of those years taught me that working in a very diverse community, you have to be felxible and sensitive to people coming from all different culture. Being sensitive to their needs can mean taking the time to listen to patients and their families, being aware of unspoken – more... cues, and being patient with those going under great stress.

Respect the differences in every person and understand that being empathic to patient needs will help promote an environment that will foster the person's well-being and help them on the road of recovery. – less
