    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    The best thing is benefits...the sick and vacation time given is great. The wellness incentive is also great.

    Cons

    The distance. The lack of growth opportunity. Too many people who won't allow change and so young people have no growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Think about the future. You are a university yet are no very open in letting people grow even when they want to. Offer more growth/learning opportunities.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.
