    I worked at University of Mississippi Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.

    Former Employee - Clinic Licensed Practical Nurse in Jackson, MS

    I worked at University of Mississippi Medical Center full-time (more than 8 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at University of Mississippi Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits because it is a state job. Great work environment. People are genuine.

    Cons

    Opportunity for advancement can seem low. Pay increases aren't frequent. Parking. Needs more diversity at the executive level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start searching more internally to promote employees to leadership positions. You have a ton of talent being wasted in departments across the institution in lower level positions. It can help improve moral and turnover.

    Current Employee - Researcher II in Jackson, MS

    I have been working at University of Mississippi Medical Center full-time (less than an year)

    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.
