    Good University

    PhD Student (Current Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsI spent two year there for my PHD program. The professors are very good. Most of them are graduated from top 20 universities and good at their own research area. The classes are quiet small.

    ConsThe program is quiet small, which makes you are the focus of the professors. Sometimes, that is pretty annoying. However, I still love the university and professors.

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

    Beautiful city, beautiful people

    Graduate Student (Former Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsThe culture is wonderful, the atmosphere is beautiful, its easy to fall in love with Miami. The professors are great and are really down to earth. The campus is beautiful and has a diverse array of students, faculty and staff. The research is leading and cutting edge.

    Executive Assistant

    Executive Assistant (Former Employee) Coral Gables, FL

    ProsSalary, benefits and beautiful campus. President Shalala is friendly and very knowledgeable. I enjoyed my brief encounters with her.

    ConsUpper management is lacking in supervisory skills. Interoffice communication very poor. Upper management attended Culture Shaping Workshops. This needs to be continually followed up on as some upper management do not take this training seriously.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate better. Don't assume everyone is on the same page. Perhaps bi-weekly meetings?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    UHealth System NOT in good health

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsPrivate Company supported by Philanthropy.....will not go out of business

    ConsUHealth & Miller School lacks LEADERSHIP. Ethically challenged......dishonest to the board.... The C-Suite executives have NO vision or leadership skills - they have big egos and collect massive paychecks. They don't lead nor make decisions with any consensus. Employee morale is lower than low. Benefits no longer set them apart from other employers. Employees do NOT feel valued. Used to be the BEST place to work!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange at the top - - from the President down to all the of C-Suite executives at UHealth & Miller school. Value your employees, you are losing competitive advantage for your employees and patients. Compensate employees appropriately.

    Student work study

    Intern (Current Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsThe culture in the lab was extremely laid back and the schedule was very flexible. You could take a day off whenever you needed.

    ConsMachines would break down causing you to rerun samples over and over. Project goals would change that would benefit some but leave others with barely any work hours for a whole semester.

    Very Good place to work

    Patient Access Representative (Current Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsGreat benefits, including Heath insurance and the opportunity to continue your studies at UM, not only that but your kids can go for free once you meet the minimum required years of work, job stability.

    ConsSalaries are not on part with other institutions, very demanding and some times stressful environment which cause a lot of people to quit( working at a hospital is not for everyone), opportunities to grow are sometimes limited.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
