Cafe Lead (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – July 11, 2018
aside from leaving for a year to work at a winery, I have been at the UW since 2008. Working with the students and having such a great clientel brings a smile to my every day. The hardest part of my day is getting up at 4:30am! The best part of my job is the smiles I bring to my customers and students.

Physical Therapy Student Assistant (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – July 2, 2018
I thought the greatest thing that came out of being a student assistant at the UW Medical Center was that it was a teaching medical center meaning all the staff were more than happy to give more insight and knowledge into their respective fields.
Administrative Specialist (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 26, 2018
UW works in conjunction with the Bill Gates Foundation. They receive grants to support projects related to health for the greater Seattle. Projects keep us busy.

I was hired as a fresh out of college grad and couldn't have been happier working for any other organization. The company supported my growth and provided me with a lot of learning chances and to continue developing my skills. My supervisor was the best in that she gave me complete freedom to do what was best suited for my working style without compromising the mission of the company.

Program Manager/ Practice Consultant (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 29, 2018
Typical day....wore many hats. General workplace culture could be improved a bit but the teams I worked with were great. Please listen to your subordinates, sometimes they have the best ideas on how to fix things. Best part of my job was being able to act as a complexity busting practice consultant. Hardest part of my job was being able to forsee things that needed to be done but having to deal with bureaucratic and resource challenges to get these changes made.
highly focused on complete care for the children with autism and their families
Patient Care Coordinator (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 6, 2018
The UW Autism Center was an outstanding place to work. From the head of the dept to the admin staff, the focus was always the child and the family. All staff had the flexibility to get the job done in the best way possible for the person doing the job. There were definite protocols to be followed and freedom in how to use them for the individual staff member as well. It was a very collaborative environment.
flexibility of job duties, highly supportive staff and great benefits
Events Coordinator (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 2, 2018
The benefits and culture are awesome but the opportunity for career growth and compensation are lacking. If you are very motivated, have a supportive supervisor, and your department isn't already top-heavy, you might be able to move up and grow within your department. However, the UW organizational structure is fairly rigid and employees, in general, are under utilized and could be challenged more. This can breed some complacency which is not good for overall morale. It's possible to find the right department and situation but the pay is under state control.
Healthcare Benefits, educated empoyees
Low pay, rigid organizational structure, little opportunity for growth
