    Pros

    Malpractice coverage, good benefits - retirement matching, medical, educational benefits, paid time off including maternity

    Pros

    none, just like the last time that i worked for UM

    Cons

    all UM is doing right now its trying not to give employees any benefits whatsoever , the entire system is worst than the last time that i worked for this :company any process takes forever all supervisors are not trained properly they hold such positions because they know somebody, as an example on the corporate run only 1000 employee participated, if we compare it to Baptist Hosp. with less than half the number of employees 1,800 employee participated on Baptist corporate run, the moral on almost all employees is lower that 3 years ago only the :BIG SHOTS" of course, are the only ones happy.
     they need to make employes moral and work enjoyable and to feel pride and proud to work for UM,

    UM and the entire system is in decay a major change is needed starting from the very top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give employes better benefits, better treatment, aim to lead by example, work to make employes feel pride on what they do and feel pride to work for the all mighty UM and UM systems , go to training to be bette leader not the make employes feel like they have to do what they told because they have no choice but instead do there work because they want to and they enjoy what they do and enjoy work for UM as well.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Miami, FL
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL

    Pros

    Comfortable office setting, great support from supervisors, and great benefits packages (health insurance and 403b retirement savings account).

    Cons

    Redundant paperwork processes (sick day, leave requests). Reimbursements for company expenses incurred by the employee undergo a 5 or 6 person approval process and may take between 3 to 6 weeks to receive. Despite receiving excellent evaluations on yearly employment reviews, the company will only provide minimum raises (1-2%) and during some years none at all. Job postings for new positions are often filled before they are even posted, and are only posted as a formality.

    Pros

    Well renowned company. It looks "good" on a resume.

    Cons

    Neither a team nor patient oriented environment. Mainly due to upper management acting individualistic and getting caught up in silly corporate games. The bottomline for a company that services patients is patient satisfaction, and that is obtained through team work. Upper management seemed more dedicated in making mid and lower management miserable instead of cultivating an effective work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't believe they will take any
