Education Technologist (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – September 24, 2018
There is definitely a "top down" approach at the University. Decisions are made at the top, without thinking about how those decisions ultimately affect those being supervised. The University wants individuals to pursue advanced education, but offers no incentives or compensation for that.
Administrative Officer (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – September 12, 2018
KU Med is a great place, where people are doing amazing work and saving lives - a great tradition of learning and care.
My experience I feel was an outlier. The team and department was great, but the chair of the department had methodology and attitudes that I was not able to live with. Lasted a year our out of shear will, but it got to the point where I couldn't go there any more.
Bilingual Early Head Start Home Visitor (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – September 10, 2018
Working as a home visitor for Early Head Start taught me valuable skills in order to properly educate young children. This was a great opportunity to get to know families and how they live, as well as help them connect to resources.

The Univerdity of Kansas is an outstanding organization to work for. There is a strong mission to deliver highly educated individuals into the workforce, conduct research, and provide care to the community. This is an wonderful place to work. There are many opportunities for career advancement.
Outpatient Registration Clerk (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – August 23, 2018
My management experience was the worst I have ever had in a job anywhere. I would have stayed and retired there if it was not for that. I tried calling HR and I am sorry to say they could not help me in time to save me and my position.
NURSE CASE MANAGER (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – August 20, 2018
I love the role we have as case managers - there is plenty of autonomy, the work environment is safe and non-threatening. The management staff is very effective, and provide a great working environment for staff to thrive in. The job culture is excellent. I have been there for 11 years because if the way I feel about going to work everyday. A typical day at work involves running the list with the doctor to know the discharges of the day. There is also huddle sometime before the end of the day - this is when an interdisciplinary team meets to discuss the patient's length of stay and progress towards discharge. The rest of the day is spent coordinating discharge, setting up patients for hospice, home health etc.
Nice people, teaching environment, well equiped and plenty of support.
Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – August 5, 2018
Some departments are well funded, others are not. This University spends its time chasing shiny objects instead of building enduring departments that can thrive regardless of what the business/funding cycle brings.
Chaplain Resident (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 22, 2018
Productive, enjoyable, and has a compassionate team, with loving culture for bringing healing and wholeness to hurting persons. Ministry of silence presence when people are processing their emotions by being there and encouraging and support. When hurting people come to terms with their current condition and accept it and let it go and have peace with their soul.
Office Clerk (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – June 3, 2018
Non-Clinical receives bottom of barrel technology wise. Outdated systems make job more difficult and tasks take much longer than they should. Management resists change, unless patient-related. Hard work is not valued or rewarded. Only those that excel at brownnosing are rewarded. Only thing management is good at is dangling the carrot of improvement, without providing improved functions. Rather than upgrade software, you are forced to use 25 year old technology. Good luck!
