    Pros

    I have worked in various areas of Finance for UPMC in the past 7 years. The leadership is focused and driven with good communication of its goals and expectations. The benefits are great, including 401K matching, generous PTO time and affordable health insurance.

    Cons

    From a corporate standpoint, there are few opportunities for flexible work schedules, work-from-home, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep the lines of communication open. Consider offering flex time.

    Pros

    Continually look for ways to improve. Offer many educational classes. Many resources available for staff and patients, pleasant working environment. I was fortunate to have a wonderful unit manager. Best of all, they achieved magnet status!

    Cons

    Begin to offer CEU's again through the library. It was convenient and I think more nurses would become certified. I found it a great benefit.

    Advice to Management

    It would be a wonderful incentive to offer senior staff their medical insurance or at least offer it from UPMC at a discounted rate
