    Current Employee - Coordinator in Miami, FL

    I have been working at University of Miami - Miller School of Medicine full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, salary ok, easy to transfer within the institution. Room for growth. Educational benefits are very good for those looking to gain a degree through their employer.

    Cons

    Can be challenging environment to succeed in depending on where you work. Very political environment. Hard to make changes with the structure due to multiple layers of leadership. Somewhat stuck in old thinking, or the "we've always done it that way" mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote thought on ways to make the system better, and break out of the top down management mentality. Diversity should be rewarded instead of penalized. Look from within and find those who should advance. Rethink the salary structure compared to your competitors and the expensive cost of living in South Florida.

    Current Employee - Epic Credentialed Trainer in Univ of Miami, FL

    I have been working at University of Miami - Miller School of Medicine

    Pros

    Employees in general have a passion for healthcare. Specifically in the Sylvester Cancer Center. Training was received very well. Upgraded the facilities to assist in the training effort.

    Cons

    Limited investment in getting the best people for the job. Sometimes budgetary constraints limited needed training. To many chiefs not communicating with one another. Short and long term planning could use some tweaking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of your development will have to come from outside of your organization or you have to upgrade the training for your current employees.

    Former Employee - Compliance Auditor in Miami, FL
    Former Employee - Compliance Auditor in Miami, FL

    I worked at University of Miami - Miller School of Medicine full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great healthcare and benefits, you will get a ton of experience from working there, tuition remission

    Cons

    Politics run UM (including who gets hired and who doesn't), HR could care less about employees - they will protect a horrible manager/supervisor over an employee any day, extremely underpaid compared to other companies, ded end job - no room for growth, will hire from outside instead of promoting from within

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First and foremost, HR needs to step it up and take into consideration the employees for once and not try to protect the management. Get stricter about who should be hired and what credentials are needed. There are way too many incompetent managers/supervisors who are doing a terrible job because they lack knowledge and related credentials. Increase your pay. You literally have to beg to get a minuscule raise at UM. I understand you have tuition remission but people can't live off of what UM pays, unless you're a top dog...and you don't get to the top of that mountain unless you know someone.

    Former Employee - Research Assistant I in Miami, FL

    I worked at University of Miami - Miller School of Medicine part-time (less than a year)

    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.
