Great opportunity

Senior, Health Project Coordinator (Current Employee)
Rochester, NY

I have been working at University of Rochester Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

ProsTraining and educational opportunities aer good, if you want more education. At some point most prefer more salary if they don't need the educational opportunity.

ConsParking on site is a nightmare...and expensive. Pay is lower than elsewhere would be with comparable education. No constency in pay from dept. to dept. for same job titles.

Average place to work

Sec IV (Current Employee)
Rochester, NY

I have been working at University of Rochester Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

Prosgreat rapport in the community. Average personal growth potential. Easier to move around within a department. Number one employee in the area

ConsOpportunities depend on who you know. The parking situation is downright awful.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork and life balance seems to be impossible. Not much support from managers

Great learning environment, tuition benefits, lack of advancement opportunities

Community Liaison (Current Employee)
Rochester, NY

I have been working at University of Rochester Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSmart co-workers that care immensely about what they do. Opportunity to learn a lot - free scientific presentations on special topics occur regualrly throughout the year. Tuition benefit program is a nice perk.

ConsDifficult to advance. Decisions are required to be sent up the chain - even small ones; slows productivity. Low amount of paid vacation time and typically only seven holidays throughout the whole year.

Advice to Senior ManagementRevisit and make clear vision, mission, goals, objectives at regular intervals for employees. Confusion over priorities exists in lower management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Wonderful Experience

Phlebotomist/Clin Tech III (Current Employee)
Rochester, NY

I have been working at University of Rochester Medical Center full-time for less than a year

ProsAdvanced Clinical Training. Fast Paced Environment.

ConsProbationary Periods. Too Long.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe Department fosters confrontational employees, They feel they must Slash and Burn other Empolyees to get ahead. It is highly competitive and sometimes unfairly harsh. I suspect employee churning as a cost cutting scenario. Vacations are by Lottery, You are told the first year to forget about it. This does not foster a Work life balance.

Not That Great

Medical Technologist II (Current Employee)
Rochester, NY

I have been working at University of Rochester Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThey used to have really great tuition benefits and that is the only reason I stayed with the medical center

ConsMiddle managers are complacent and don't care. Most supervisors and managers are promoted not based on ability but based on tenure. Not a great place to work unless you are a nurse or physician. They also are taking away benefits due to the new health care reform.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate better incentives to stay with the medical center and create more positions to advance to. Stop treating Physicians and Nurses as if they can do no wrong while placing the blame on others.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It is a congenial collaborative work environment that fosters networking among scientists with diverse expertise.

Research Assistant Professor (Current Employee)
Rochester, NY

I have been working at University of Rochester Medical Center full-time for less than a year

ProsMulti disciplinary research favors collaborations among scientists with diverse areas of expertise. Many renowned scientists including several Nobel Laureates are invited for talks each year and the community is exposed to trending areas in science.

ConsInternal funding opportunities for early career scientists are limited. Some departments are not as well managed as others.

Advice to Senior ManagementA better management of parking would be nice. Also creating internal funding opportunities for international employees would enhance diversity.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Flexible, great for students

Office Assistant (Current Employee)
Rochester, NY

I have been working at University of Rochester Medical Center part-time for more than 3 years

ProsAm able to meet a lot of people and still work in a professional setting, gain a lot of experience, learn a lot and exposed to many things would never have chance to be exposed to in other administrative positions

ConsStress sometimes creates difficult working environment, but nothing that can't be handled

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
