    I worked at University of Rochester Medical Center full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The university of Rochester is an excellent working environment, with good facilities on campus for staff, career development opportunities and access to research facilities. The university also provides housing for staff in the vicinities of campus at affordable prices, which is particularly good for newcomers moving in from abroad.

    Cons

    Rochester has a good standard of living, however is more of a family-friendly suburban city and doesn't offer a lot for young single people. Opportunities to socialize are very scarce, and the very tough winter weather makes it very hard to live there alone.

    Pros

    The University of Rochester Medical Center has terrific benefits from the moment you begin employment. It is the biggest employer of Rochester with many job openings.

    Cons

    It is very hard, almost impossible to obtain a position within another department unless you know someone. I wanted to stay with this company but unfortunately, I could not advance and decided to move on as I was extremely unhappy with my role. After working at this company for a year, I had only received one 2% raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want top quality work, you need to hire top-notch employees. There was a major problem with absences and employees who came into the office late. Nothing was ever done about this and this set the overall tone for the office.

    I have been working at University of Rochester Medical Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The current leadership has made extraordinary efforts to ensure that all of the staff in the medical center behave with the highest professional standards. In addition, programs to recognize the efforts of individual staff in this regard have been implemented.

    Cons

    The weather in the winter in Rochester isn't great. But it is very conducive to wanting to work, since it's usually too cold and windy to want to do much outdoors.
