Patient Transportation Specialist (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 18, 2017
The most enjoyable part about working with the University of Chicago Medicine is the interaction with patients. A smile can go a long way. Making those that feel sick by moment of laughter, helping them forget about their problems, or simply allowing them to vent is the best gift I can give anyone. In transportation, teamwork is very important as well. we extended our hands to help each other which makes a typical work day very easy.

Patient Resource Speaciliat (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 20, 2016
Its an elite institution with elite ideals. Often times these do not match. In my opinion best intentions are not the best laid planned and employees can be ignored in this process. But overall U of C is a great place to work. Compensation is fair and workload equals at least in my position. I personally wish there was more opportunity for growth. There is still a very heavy mentality of if I know you - you will be promoted going on.
