    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Don't be heinous. We are not robots & we have lives outside of work.

    The hospital has gone from a community hospital to another hospital that cares less and less for their employees.

    I have been working at Union Memorial Hospital full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Doctors
    Excellent service
    Good parking
    Friendly staff

    Cons

    Poor leadership
    Mismanagement of resources
    Selfishness of upper management
    Low pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop caring only about yourselves, and remember that without your lowliest of staff members this hospital doesn't work. Pay your staff for the work they do, not what the market says, and give bonuses and perhaps your staff will be happier!

    Former Employee - Student Nurse Assistant in Baltimore, MD

    I worked at Union Memorial Hospital part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Security guards are nice and helpful; general mood is positive; facility is clean and attractive.

    Cons

    Many snags with new-employee orientation; parking permit unavailable, badge barcode defective; cafeteria credit card reader broken. And these issue took weeks to resolve. The self-scheduling computer software won't run on Macs. The list goes on and on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Survey new employees to find out what went wrong. Then make improvements.
