    Positive Outlook

    I worked at UPMC full-time (Less than a year)


    Flexible schedule, great company values, amazing staff, lots of support from peers and higher ups. All around a great place to work would recommend to anyone.


    I honestly didn't have any downsides, maybe the occasional late shift when a crisis may occur, but it comes with the job.

    Advice to Management

    My direct management was great.
