    Very Good place to work

    Patient Access Representative (Current Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsGreat benefits, including Heath insurance and the opportunity to continue your studies at UM, not only that but your kids can go for free once you meet the minimum required years of work, job stability.

    ConsSalaries are not on part with other institutions, very demanding and some times stressful environment which cause a lot of people to quit( working at a hospital is not for everyone), opportunities to grow are sometimes limited.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ProsGreat students, great support, salary is good. I enjoy my colleagues. The load is much better than it used to be. My department chair is great, and very fair.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo comment at this time. I do worry about our dean's vision.

    UM is a great option for graduate and post doc work.

    Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) Coral Gables, FL

    ProsBeautiful campus with a relaxed atmosphere. There's plenty to do between the numerous on campus events, downtown Miami, Wynwood and of course South Beach. There are many resources to develop professionally at the newly renovated Toppel Career Center and the Alumni Association has many members both in South Florida and internationally.

    ConsThis is a bit unique to my situation but the bureaucracy here can be a bit frustrating when you're trying to get things done. For example, there have a been a few mishaps that led to delaying tuition, work assignments and the paperwork for becoming a research assistant and renewing my contract each year.

    UM is a great place for student jobs, managers are very understanding about academic responsibilities.

    IT Security (Current Employee) Coral Gables, FL

    ProsThe managers understand that students have to do school work, which takes priority over the job. This helps if you are trying to get a day off to study.

    ConsThe pay is competitive to other basic jobs but still not very much. It is easy to get confused becasue managers have multiple responsibilities besides being in charge of the intern.
