When I first started at UW I loved it! As a nursing assistant I had the perfect amount of autonomy on night shift. After three years at UW, they started mandatory "flexing down" which meant being sent home without pay. I was told by the Nursing Director that I "was lucky to have a job" and "that even she had to sacrifice part of her bonus" (meanwhile we didn't get bonuses...). Definitely makes you feel like you are a small bean at a large company.
I was hired here to be a Master's Swim Coach because of the major I graduated with. In general, I've had some past experience, but I was helped at the beginning to allow me to plan sufficient classes. I also am a lifeguard, where I work with the patrons. A great majority of them are present because they are rehabbing after an injury. Over 2 years later and I am very happy at this job!
UW Health is great place to work. However, in the past year or so it has become apparent that they are sacrificing worker happiness and support to increase bottom line. They need to change how they are trying to get pennies from the fromt line and maybe look to the executive level on places to save money. The front line is not adequately supported to be able to do the cost saving initiatives that are being set down feom upper management.
