    Good place to work

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at University Hospitals of Cleveland

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Not 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 ManagementAdvice

    Pay 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.

    Current Employee - Medical Laboratory Technician  in  Bedford, OH
    Current Employee - Medical Laboratory Technician in Bedford, OH

    I have been working at University Hospitals of Cleveland full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Laboratory 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.

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    Clean 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 have been working at University Hospitals of Cleveland

    Pros

    Good central location and free flu shot.

    Cons

    Employees 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 ManagementAdvice

    Consider following your own policies

    Not a professional environment for a SLP

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at University Hospitals of Cleveland

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were good.

    Cons

    This 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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Former Employee - Department Manager  in  Cleveland, OH
    Former Employee - Department Manager in Cleveland, OH

    I worked at University Hospitals of Cleveland full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Good-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 ManagementAdvice

    Don'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.
