    Pros

    Great compensation, health insurance, and 401K match. The new CEO is very inspiring and really helping to improve the culture.

    Cons

    Too many unions making it hard or impossible for managers to promote the best talent. It is a shame to promote based solely on seniority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve relations with the nursing unions.

    I worked at UMass Memorial Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    High pay scale, Union job, good health benefits package, liberal time off policy, are just some of the pros of working at UMassMemorial.

    Cons

    Disagreements between co-workers are not solved. No good problem resolution system in place to resolve problems between co-workers.The only system in place is for disputes between workers and management, union is not set up for,and can't effectively resolve, disputes between union co-workers. This problem needs to be addressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise UMassMemorial to look at improving their problem resolution systems and make them more effective.

    The benefits are good, but the work schedule makes it tough to have a life.

    Pros

    The benefits are good, especially the accrued time off policy. It really allows you flexibility with time off for vacations, sickness, etc.

    Cons

    Having to work every third weekend makes it tough to have a life. It's tough raising a family when you have to constantly switch days off with other employees.
