It has potential but falls incredibly short.

I have been working at UPMC Southside

Pros

This is a nice quaint local hospital in a good location. The staff here takes their job very seriously. Patient care here is second to none.

Cons

Very poor pay in comparison to other area hospitals. Also the fact that is eventually going to close. Well at least that is what I am hearing. I would have to say that the lines of communication are non-existent. There is no downward or upward channeling of info. Many times I hear info three weeks later than some of the folks in my section.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Talk to your people! Keep them in the loop. There is nothing worse than being completely in the dark and just guessing what is going to happen next. Also, recognition for outstanding job performance is lacking.

    Great place for a misogynist to work!

    I have been working at UPMC Southside

    Pros

    There were good benefits, and most of the coworkers made it enjoyable. Most of the department managers and supervisors were great to work with.

    Cons

    Senior management and the executive team are not very supportive, and although the president is a woman, the men do not seem to respect women.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should provide better communication with employees, and treat employees like they are human and equal - just because one is a senior level manager or executive doesn't mean you are any better of a person than someone who mops the floors, serves the foods, takes blood, or cares for patients.

    I have been working at UPMC Southside

    Pros

    Can accrue substantial vacation time
    Nice location to work

    Cons

    Extremely nepotistic company
    Senior management is not employee friendly
    People are promoted based on who they know, not on performance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in new blood that has vision, we are in 2010, why is UPMC still operating like it is 1975? As the largest employer in SW Pa. people should be clamoring to work here instead of all trying to escape.
