    Pros

    I have had the opportunity to excel in my career. There are great Mentors at UH, if a person takes risks and remains competitive in their areas of expertise.
    UH mission is upheld in all areas of the institution and the majority of employees are dedicated and encourage this mission.

    Cons

    Very large bureaucratic and competitive health care industry. Early in my career the priority of all employees was the care of the patients. As the health care industry has become heavily scrutinized the focus has become increasingly focused on profitability.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if management would take less salary and empower the lowest paid employees. This would improve commitment at all levels of their silos and improve the cleanliness and gratitude of these employees and their direct managers.

    Pros

    I volunteer at the Bedford satellite. It is small. Everyone knows your name. People care about each other. They care about the community. The President, Robert David, came to the Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon. That says a lot! The employees are open and honest. It is my ideal place to work. This facility is geared to elder care and has implemented an Elder ER. The Bedford Satellite is part of a large network which is affiliated with Case Western University. It is a unique and fascinating place.

    Cons

    Until 1993, Bedford Medical Center was an autonomous entity. It was purchased by University Hospitals Health System, which is a huge network of facilities. At times, the University Hospitals is the deciding force in policy. The familiarity of the small suburban hospital gets lost within the system.

    Advice to Management

    There have been several volunteers who have applied for paying positions that reflect their volunteer responsibilities. They were overlooked despite their qualifications. A volunteer is not considered an employee when applying for a position. They go through a background check and hospital training before they can begin. They provide a real reference of their abilities and work ethic in a probationary period. Volunteers are already trained. However, they are not given the advantage afforded a University Hospital employee in the hiring process. As a business, it is economically unwise to throw away such an investment.

  7. I have been working at University Hospitals of Cleveland

    Pros

    People are great with few exceptions, work is satisfying and engaging. Work schedule and paid time off is flexible fostering a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    If you don't fit a certain profile or culture, your days here can be frustrating at times, no matter how well you perform your job.

    Advice to Management

    Offer praise more often.

    Pros

    I was fortunate to have wonderful co workers who were devoted to patient care and research and really believed in teamwork.

    Cons

    As with any large company, bureaucracy and cost cutting measures are in place, benefits were reduced slightly but that is across the board nowadays.

    Advice to Management

    Don't chip away at what makes UH a good place to work- keep supporting the strengths of the hospital.
