No work life balance, Don't care about the well being of their employees
I worked for the University of Chicago School not the hospital, I believe they are quite different with regards to employee relations. I was a unioned employee that received little to no support from my union. It was my experience that they cared more about having butts in the seats then they did the well being of their employees. You could be sick and dying but you must show up to work if you don't have "time".

Bad company
They don’t care about their employees at all . Remember they love their numbers not qualities but quantities... you are just numbers to them .... no retention at all

The best position I've ever had
I loved working at the University of Chicago, in fact I am applying to other divisions to try and get back there. The University is an interesting place to be while on campus; students, culture, location etc.

Flexible schedule, easy job, sketchy environment
Mostly retired people, students and felons. Diverse environment with flexible scheduling. Job is monotonous but easy. Typical day is clocking in and dialing random numbers all day to see who picks up the phone to do surveys. Metrics are based on how many surveys you complete. I learned basic call centers. Management doesn't really care. Workplace culture is unforgiving because it is boring and everyone is bored. The hardest part of the job is keeping at it despite being bored. The most enjoyable part is the flexibility in schedules.

typical Ph.D life
UChicago is famous for END OF FUN. So I guess my Ph.D study here is quite typical. Students like me spend a lot of time at lab and office. It would be more than difficult to balance the life and work when you choose to finish a physics doctor degree. Luckily, my adviser is great and we are really productive.

Excellent job for work-study
If you like libraries, then this job is perfect. Got to spend all day in the special collections room or in the Mansueto basement, working the robot. Could be a little hard on the Vitamin D intakes, but otherwise an excellent work-study opportunity

Not a bad place to work
Overall, the University of Chicago paid well and had good benefits. Specific departments did not have great management, and the roles within them did not have any possibility for advancement.
