    Good place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI was regularly recognized for my work and felt appreciated. I never ran out of things to do and had very flexible hours. As a student, I could go in whenever I wanted and take time off for exams if needed.

    ConsNot everyone received the same recognition. For example, I worked in a lab and in the administrative offices and it seemed as though the lab employees were less cared about than the office employees. There should be more even standards.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to the employees and show them that you care. Simple things such as an occasional lunch would make all the difference. Also, more attention should be paid to employee safety. The lab I worked in had no where near proper ventilation.

    Get Go of Laboratory

    Medical Laboratory Technician (Current Employee) Bedford, OH

    ProsLaboratory in Bedford is simple majority of specimens are sent to University Hospitals Cleveland. Training is easy. Majority of MTs are about to retire or retiring age with that being said hospital system will hire more MLTs for lower compensation.

    ConsNo room for advancement because high ups will stay until forced to retire early, which they need to be because majority of them are not willing to learn new technologies. Many Techs are too busy with their breaks, lunches, and smoke breaks rather than being concern with stat specimens.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean house in laboratories for those who do not want to learn new technologies along with keeping new techs from learning basic laboratory duties:ordering, calibration, etc.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disregard for employees

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood central location and free flu shot.

    ConsEmployees are encouraged to speak up about problems, but are marginalized if they dare to do so. Great deal of nepotism and favoritism. Benefits are dismal compared to competitors. Parking fees are steep. Doctors are penalized for spending too much time with patients and secretarial staff are regularly treated with disrespect.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider following your own policies

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    Not a professional environment for a SLP

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe pay and benefits were good.

    ConsThis SLP position was at a UH critical care access facility. The staff had very little understanding of the role of a SLP and there was no support provided from management or expectation that staff should be respectful. Each step of the way was challenging due to mean/unprofessional conduct by fellow employees. Many SLP recommendations were continually, excessively, not adhered to. This was a violation of the doctors order and an ongoing problem for the SLP. Within a twelve month period two SLPs left this facility. Another SLP shared a similar experience she encountered while working at a different UH critical care access facility regarding lack of respect, professional regard, and a sense that staff was working against her all while management did nothing to convey support for her role. There are more professional environments to work in. Stay clear of facilities like this.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBefore you hire a SLP make sure you understand exactly what the SLP's role is so that the SLP can function within the hospital.

    "Absolutely everything it promised to be and more!"

    Clinical Coordinaror, RN (Former Employee) Cleveland, OH

    ProsEncourages education, open-minded thinking, encourages autonomy, no "babysitting" or micromanaging. Efficient training programs and fantastic growth potential.

    ConsReally none, except employee parking is not free. Hiring process takes time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I truly enjoyed working at University Hospitals of Cleveland, Main Campus

    Department Manager (Former Employee) Cleveland, OH

    ProsAutonomy as a Manager. Culture was great. Chance for advancement (if not at main campus, then up to other healthcare campuses)

    ConsGood-ole-boys networking. Loyalty to advance employees who should not be advanced when newer staff are more qualified. Management that has been in place a long time who are ineffective.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't just promote your buddies and friends whom you have long time working relationships with. By not giving younger staff (those with less seniority) a chance to move up from coordinator or supervisor ranks you cause discontent and resentment.

    They have the potential to be great. They just aren't there yet.

    Radiologic Technologist (Former Employee) Cleveland, OH

    ProsFair compensation and good benefits package.

    ConsSome department are run excellently, while others are headed by people who are not the most competent, but merely have been there the longest. There is a don't ask, don't tell attitude when it comes to poor patient outcomes or poor employee training. The supervisors hide the problems from upper management so that nothing can really change.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe culture of the hospital that is described during new employee orientation is not what actually happens. You need to correct the disconnect. Perhaps sending your supervisors and long-term employees through it might help them to understand what you are working so hard to achieve.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
