I have been working at UPMC full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of vacation time and you can carry over to next year or sell back PTO, health plan monthly cost very low, pay is decent, people get along with eachother really well.

Cons

Workload is heavy, deadlines are tight, projects never stop coming, any errors on your part will be talked about during your annual evaluation. Plan on your mistakes being brought up again and again.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Say no to projects that are unnecessary or waste of resources. Stop piling on project after project, it is a recipe for mistakes.

    I have been working at UPMC part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very welcoming and accommodating work environment. The people are nice and helpful, and are willing to teach you tasks or projects you never had before. Very helpful gathering times where full time as well as part time workers can hang out and get to know with one another. Very little tension between lower and higher position relationship.

    Cons

    The emergency or evacuating situation was compromised during my time working there. The hospital however is working their best to improve their security measures and workers are very happy and supportive in the new security measures.

    I have been working at UPMC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The PTO accumulation is fairly generous. I'm not sure how it compares in quality to other multi-billion dollar revenue companies, but there is a retirement plan.

    Cons

    Generally, Human Resources is very unresponsive to employee inquiries; it is an atmosphere of secrecy, command and control. Academic credentials are given enormous weight throughout the company - don't expect actual job experience or performance to get you very far toward finding another job within the company unless your academic history is a close match for the job you want.

    Do a great job or a poor job and the reward is the same - a regular paycheck and a 2.5% raise once a year. Your shortcomings will be noted in your performance review; there is always at least one shortcoming that can be recalled for inclusion there. Concerns (well, concerns of a certain kind) move up the chain of command quickly - each level of management wants to avoid negative PR, no matter how petty the issue, and feels the need to report to *their* supervisor before making many decisions. I usually see the following pattern: supervisor-->Dept. Director-->Clinical Administrator-->V.P. I kid you not.

    The job of Service Coordinator (mental health) itself, apart from the general UPMC environment, is about the same as one would expect it to be anywhere...lots of petering calls and demands from people on SSI asking you do things for them. Plus, there is a lot of paperwork solely for documentation and record keeping purposes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting an atmosphere of fear and paranoia. Introduce incentives for people to do more than the bare minimum.
