Marketing Assistant (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – May 22, 2018
There's always another exciting project to start working on next. Leadership conferences, hosting seminars, and providing leadership development sessions are just a few of these projects. Great people!
administrator (Former Employee) – University of Utah Hospital – May 9, 2018
There are many places on the University of Utah that are great places to work. Except for high deductible health insurance, which is uniform, different departments and divisions have a completely different work ethos, culture, etc. I worked at University of Utah Hospital for 16 years, with only the last two years being awful due to some politics you might have read about in the paper, which resulted in the firing of the VP for Health Sciences. Unfortunately, that situation resulted in a complete lack of oversight downstream and allowed my bad boss to show his true self.
Until the last couple of years, it was a great place to work, doing interesting things that were meaningful. I hope it recovers soon and gets back to being its good self. Salaries are low for the workload, and although management brags about the health insurance, my friends in industry said it sucked, and when I changed to an industry job I found out that they were right. Not a good place to have a chronic health condition (and yes, I do see the irony).
Having said all that, there are many great people, I just happened to be supervised by a clunker.
free bus pass, the non-medical campus is cool
they will use you up and throw you away at University Hospital
Tutor/Grader (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – May 2, 2018
It's a lovely place to work, but getting full-time jobs of any value can be exceptionally competitive. The primary difficulty is dealing with prima donna professors; but the management is highly skilled, fair, and reasonable.
Tenured Professor (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – May 2, 2018
The place to work ins excellent, with good students, may resources and easy access to all areas of research. Is very competitive, but in particular, the school of medicine does not have a real tenure for professor, so as you lose your funding your salary decreases and it is an option of the chair to determine if you can continue working at the departments. No working space or salary is assured.
