    Pros

    Fair pay, good opportunity to get overtime and holiday pay, nice faculty and staff

    Cons

    Very hard to transfer departments. You literally have to know somebody to move to a different department or even get in the first time for that matter.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair when choosing candidates to hire. The person you think you know may not be the best choice. Give other people a fair chance to start a career.

    Pros

    university is nice and very collaborative. in terms of funding opportunities you will be competing with south-east affiliate, which is not bad. Guyton legacy has strong impact on research.

    Cons

    not much to do in Jackson. poorest state with all strings attached.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the atmosphere of the hospital and working to ensure that each patient was treated with respect and as if they were the only one

    Cons

    rotating shifts were not good for me

    Advice to Management

    really want a clinic receptionist job....I have limited mobility and need a position where I am able to sit for periods of time doing things such as answering the phone, checking patients in and out of the hospital computer work etc.

    Pros

    Benefits, time off policies, overall great people, room for growth, free tuition!

    Cons

    Parking, who they let be in higher management (some departments, not all)

    Advice to Management

    Please do not let people who do not know how to do ANYTHING other than tell others what to do because they are too lazy or really don't even know how (but pretend they are too "busy to) be in management. Please!


  9. Efficient and effective work analysis is necessary for future operational success at the University of Mississippi.

    Pros

    The University is Family friendly.

    Cons

    There is still an air of the Deep South operations at the University. Minorities are not give the same opportunities for advancement. There are no advancement opportunity for minorities. Specifically, Black people are overlooked or marginalized on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Diversity is needed in management at UMMC

    Pros

    State of the art equipment upgraded and encouragement to take on multiple duties as assigned. Provided a family atmosphere when time off was needed.

    Cons

    Company values seem to change and it became more about the number of patients and quantity of time spent rather than the quality. It was more of management changes that spurred this change than the providers cared to.

    Advice to Management

    Encouraging patients to refer their family and friends as a part of their customer service, may provide more positive response than just relying on the ability to accept their insurance. At least it seems that way in my opinion.

    Went there for the potential; left because few seemed to want to rise to it.

    Pros

    Jackson is actually a wonderful, livable and vibrant gem of a city to live in. There is a children's hospital (Batson) as well as a VAMC and several other hospitals in the area. New companies are regularly arriving in Jackson (Whole Foods) and the city is multicultural and tolerant. Additionally, there is a phenomenal art museum in town.

    Cons

    Sadly UMC is nowhere near the place it could be. The leadership is non-existent, and bad behavior is met with a blind eye. Several departments have gone through multiple chairmen in a very short duration. Ultimately, UMC looks good on the surface but is rotten beneath.

    Advice to Management

    Need to re-examine priorities and re-right the ship.
