I have been working at UPMC

Pros

job security, money, prestige, experience, global presence

Cons

long hours, short lunches, under apperciated

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You cannot afford to stop accepting Highmark insurance in 2013 as a significant portion of patients have it. Secondly, corporate must realize that quantity does not produce quality, you cannot have it both ways.

    I worked at UPMC

    Pros

    -You can pick your own shifts.
    -If you are outgoing, you can interact with doctors and physician assistants that will give you opportunities to shadow them, which is great for college students planning to go into healthcare.
    -Work with some great people who care about their patients...until they get burnt out.

    Cons

    Morale is way down. Understaffed and cannot keep up with the hotel like stay that is expected. High stress. Management is out of touch. UPMC health plan is garbage - very high deductibles and cannot see any doctors outside of UPMC. Raises were deferred two years to the point where new hires were making more than those with years of experience. Low pay compared to retirement communities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    UPMC used to be a good place to work, but with new policies and advertisements in place, the hospital is burning a lot of good employees out. Focus more on team building and not being as bureaucratic as possible, increase pay to pa market rates, and actually staff the units.
