I love my hospital, not my department.
Supply Clerk (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – August 22, 2017
UW is a FANTASTIC environment for nearly anyone, and I can't recommend it highly enough! Not only are all employees paid a living wadge and fairly treated, but there are so many different possible job descriptions that many kinds of people can find work there. I left because I wanted to work with patients, not just in the building with them. My manager had issues fully staffing her department and spent a year denying my requests to transfer to a patient care job. Ultimately, I quit, in search of that patient care position of my dreams, but I miss my hospital terribly and hope to return some day in a different position. Management in my department was sometimes borderline hostile, but ultimately I understand their position and love UW, flaws and all. The campus is comfortable--the cafeteria is affordable and healthy, the outdoor seating areas great for breaks. UW offers great benefits, and the feeling you get, knowing you work for one of the greatest hospitals in the Midwest, working as one of 5000 employees of UW health, there is nothing like it. I wish my department issue could have been resolved another way, but I fully intend to return.
nice cafeteria, great enviroment, friendly culture, respectful employers.
short staffing means we are sometimes overworked and makes transfers impossible
