    Pros

    University pays more than most other state agencies and is located in central Mississippi. there is a work environment that allows for individuals to feel like they are always part of the team.

    Cons

    working at any hospital has it challenged and university is no different. there is limited ability to move up the corporate ladder leaving employees feel as if they have no options.

    Pros

    Depending on the lab you're working in, there's always something to do
    Nice people
    Decent atmosphere
    Loose protocol for clocking in and out

    Cons

    Co-workers constantly trying to get over on other co-workers
    Bad management over the lab techs
    Bad attitude of the post-docs
    PAY
    They love for you to work overtime, even though you're paid a salary
    They take about 15% of your check for retirement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please raise the salary for your tech positions. It requires plenty of overtime with no compensation. The salary is barely enough to survive off.

    I liked the benefits at UMMC and felt like a family. Also, they have events for the community and their employees that are really fun and to keep everyone engaged.

    They took out almost 10% for retirement and my department closed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    Pros

    They offer great benefits with good health insurance. Paid vacations were awesome.

    Cons

    New management doesn't understand the wheels that make the system work well for patients or employees..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out what works from the employers in that department before changing things.

    Former Employee - Accounts Payable Clerk I  in  Jackson, MS
    Former Employee - Accounts Payable Clerk I in Jackson, MS

    Pros

    Personal and Medical days, paid holidays. Option to get more hours during busy times. Friendly co-workers. Great supervisors in Accounting. Very helpful.

    Cons

    Retirement plan is mandatory. I wished this was different because I knew I wasn't going to be there forever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish the retirement plan wasn't mandatory for everyone. Between that and taxes, I lost a third of my check. Other than that, I only left this job because work in Accounts Payable was repetitive and I missed working with the public.

    Pros

    I worked for a year for a professor at UMC and it was a great job. I had lots of flexibility provided I completed all my work. The healthcare benefits were excellent. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    The location was perhaps the only drawback. Get used to being hit up for change from patients who "just need fifty cents to take the bus home."
