    Pros

    UPMC has a great culture and most people are willing to help when you need it. The internship program was supportive and a lot of fun - even provided some opportunities to explore Pittsburgh with colleagues.

    Cons

    Office space was very uninspiring and not at all conducive to good collaborative work. At times the IT systems that we used were not the best for the job and/or outdated.

    Advice to Management

    I did not have a lot of contact with upper management, other than hearing them speak. Most interactions with them were more like 25 interns talking to one manager. Perhaps try to split time so that there is more personal interaction.

    Pros

    UPMC has a great team of executives and is always thinking about the future of healthcare and how to approach it today. This organization also has a strong talent pool in the Finance Division. My experience there was always collaborative and with shared goals across all divisions.

    Cons

    There are no cons to working at UPMC. Healthcare reform is forcing a great deal of changes and down/right sizing of the largest IDNs and UPMC is no exception.

    I worked at UPMC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's okay, could be better.

    Cons

    While the retirement benefits are okay, the pay scale for research technicians is starting to look equivalent to working at McDonald's. In a nutshell, the salaries of research technicians could be better

    Advice to Management

    Use the Department of Human Resources to examine the resumes' of potential research technicians so postings are not up for a year without being filled.

    Pros

    The nurses work together extremely well
    Very busy, a lot of experience gained
    UPMC match to retirement contribution is nice

    Cons

    Nothing offered to casual staff despite hours worked
    It doesn't matter if you have a doctor's excuse for missed work.
    Ratios are horrible most of the time

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should work as a nurse on the floor for an entire shift at least once a quarter.

  8. Very broad. Worked in Research for multiple years. Great overall, but beware of who your supervisors are.

    Diverse and easy to find a laboratory that interests you.

    It's research, gets extremely busy.
    Lots of work in - may not lead to much output

    Provide more financially-rewarding opportunities for students such as internships and fellowships.
