    Pros

    UMMS is a large established company, medical benefits are good, enjoyable orientation program, lots of available overtime and substituting opportunities in departments other than the one you were hired for.

    Cons

    Horribly understaffed (budget related) leading to pressure to work 60 hours plus per week. Required to fill in and cover for jobs not properly trained for. The lack of staff in all departments leads to lots of turnover and burned out extremely stressed employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a way to hire more people especially in nursing and laboratory departments.

    Pros

    encourage professional advancement
    effective leadership
    respect from management
    clean facility
    high-risk patients and difficult diagnoses accepted, a plus for those who want a challenge

    Cons

    Compared to area hospitals and especially compared to the entire eastern seaboard, this hospital's compensation ranks very very low. Not as low as Hopkins (the lowest).. but they are riding on the same idea that its employees should be satisfied enough to enjoy the prestige of working at a top-ranked hospital. *sigh* For us medical elitists, it's often true.. so it works.
