I worked at UPMC

Pros

Opportunities for advancement are immense in the right field and if you are in the 'in' crowd. It's very much a click network.

Cons

Once you reach the top you tend to have a target on your head. Routine layoff's of upper manement are the norm.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stabalize the organization. Too many people are scared of being layed off as is the history of UPMC. You are the econonomic driver of the city, and the 2nd largest employer of the state.

    Pros

    Because UPMC is a big company there is a lot going on all the time, enough to keep people on their toes for many years.

    Cons

    Unfortunately people have been promoted for seniority but lack the competence to be senior managers
    People are promoted for longevity, not competency, therefore many career people that slow growth and innovation.
    Decentralization causes the company to be redundant and inefficient.
    Many people were laid off in the past few years so the company is running lean and putting a lot of stress and work on those that stayed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Centralize the structure of the organization to create cross-communication and reduce doubling of efforts. Run the company like one well-oiled machine instead of the many different silos that don't communicate and operate independently.
