      Former Employee, more than 3 years

      The company could literally save millions of dollars in employee turnover if it respected its workers

      Pros

      A leading organization in healthcare. Attractive facilities. Good use of the latest technology.

      Cons

      The company sees workers as cogs to be utilized until broken rather than as the foundation that the company’s work is built upon. Toxic (one could argue pathological) people are promoted into middle-management, who then proceed to abuse their staff until the best workers finally quit (I’m looking at you Southdale, UMMC and UMP Clinic & Surgery Center). Upper management is either oblivious or part of the problem.

      Pros

      Good benefits pay, close seen a little diversity not much though.

      Cons

      The management is horrible very horrible he does not know how to communicate with his team he comes off as nice but than gets rude and aggressive when you ask him for assistance not good at all. There is no good proper training. The orientation here was not good the person who held the orientation was not pleasant at all. When you walk in the door it’s just brings a toxic negative racist vibe and it’s sad that the healthcare system is whitewashed just complete racism at its best I will never apply for this company again. HR department does not care seems like they only care about getting a pay check they are afraid to do anything especially if your a person of color this whole company is racist I can’t It’s 2021 people not the 1950s.

      Pros

      Pay was good and there was a lot of training opportunities. Most processes were good.

      Cons

      Upper level leadership not very involved in the day to day work. This resulted in too many projects and not enough staff.

      Pros

      Independent work, but team work is required. If a team member is behind, you will be required to help out otherwise there will be discussions from management. You get to plan and organize all the departments assigned to you. Don't take on more work if a supervisor asks you. You don't get compensated for it and remember that you are easily replaced. Your hard work will always get overlooked.

      Cons

      Poor management and high favoritism. If you don't fit the criteria of the upper management levels, just know that you won't ever get promoted until you fit into their category. Since it's an independent position, you have to train your team members to cover your areas. You usually come back to a load of extra work from vacation. Good luck!
