Animator (Current Employee) –  Business BuildingDecember 17, 2015
It is a great place to work for current students, because you get paid while being educated. I film lectures and upload them, essentially getting paid to go to class. I also create short animated films, all of which I learned on the job.

Terrible Management and Favortism
pharmacy technician (Former Employee) –  Home InfusionNovember 22, 2015
This pharmacy sucks! Don't work for them! University of Utah is a great place for education and employment as long as you don't work at this pharmacy. They've had 15-20 pharmacy technicians come and go (turnover) in the past 2 years because management is easily manipulated and listens to the person who is causing the problem instead of hearing everyone else's opinion. This pharmacy will never improve til they take care of the root of the problem-get rid of this cretain technician!! ;-) Better management, stop favortism, stop the gossiping, and stop the harassment! Thats what this pharmacy is desperately in need of for this place to succeed!!!!! They claim everyone that leaves is breaking the promise standards when in reality it is themselves that is breaking the promise standards.

Media Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTSeptember 29, 2015
The mediocre bullies who wield their degrees in a flurry of politics to inflate their worth, overpower the competent people who want to earn an honest and harmonious living by sharing their knowledge.

The whole place is suffering from a severe case of The Stockholm Syndrome.
Pros
Knowledge can be gained.
Cons
A Feudal Hierarchy

The balance all depends on the department you work for. Make sure you clearly understand what requirements and demands your supervisor has for you.

Great medical benefits, people, students and the new fitness center

Once again management gets paid, leaving the people who actaully complete the work getting paid peanuts.

Medical Coder (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTAugust 19, 2015
Medical coding and participating in meetings occupied most of my days. Assigned certain specialties and worked on those most days unless others were behind and then would assist others until caught up. Management had an open door policy and were helpful with any questions. I enjoyed the people i worked with and still keep in touch with them after i resigned.
