    Pros

    Great group of people to work with. Great company to work for.

    Cons

    None really. Maybe just location...There's not much to do in Lubbock, TX.

    I worked at UMC Health System part-time

    Pros

    Professional, clean, and thorough training

    Cons

    Supervisors play favorites to those who have been there longer.

    Advice to Management

    Disperse duties equally rather than put favoritism to those who have been there longer. Those tend to be the ones who end up doing absolutely nothing all shift.

    I worked at UMC Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked with some good people. On some floors they were team oriented and willing to help each other out sometimes.

    Cons

    There is a lot of nurse bullying that goes on especially with the younger nurses. Hours were cut a lot in the summer months.

    Advice to Management

    Accountability and don't let your nurses eat their young!

    I have been working at UMC Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Management cares about one thing, projecting a positive front to the world.

    Cons

    Over worked, crooked practices abound. The COO and CEO are snake oil salesmen at best. Stole MILLIONS by falsely billing Medicare, settled with US Justice Department for a $4 Million criminal fine and passed it off to employees and public as "it is difficult to bill correctly."

    I work with cardiologists who tell me how they are given kick-backs. This place is like a cult, if you don't drink the cool-aid, they try to destroy your entire life. I would be scared to cross these people. It is like the "Christian Mafia", with god father being the COO.

    In last 10 years, I have seen him crush and destroy the practice and lives of an internal medicine doctor, drove another to suicide, crushed a female doctor he didn't like and set up a guy who was charged criminally for some of the hospital's bad dealings.

    This place is worse than anything you could imagine taking place, but with a PR machine that makes everything look pure and white. And speaking of white, don't expect to advance if you aren't. They have ONE token minority Vice President out of about 20.

    One day, you're physician of the year or employee of the year. Then you cross the COO and you're accused of stealing, being a drug user, or billing illegally. This place is hell. I am looking to leave Texas and healthcare just so I am out of the grasps of this evilness.

    Advice to Management

    Someone needs to take a very hard look at the Chief Operating Officer! He is an evil and hate-filled man who plays favorites and delights in destroying the lives of people who question him.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the family atmosphere that was show cased in most of the areas that I worked. The pay, benefits, and most things were really good.

    Cons

    I do not have any negative things to say about this company. There will always be something about your job that you do not like but I find that to be one sided so I have nothing.

    I worked at UMC Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paid on time, in full, decent schedule (not great, but decent), pretty nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Employed majority of college students who dictated their schedule, management who played favorites (BIG TIME), You are defintely replaceable, shady promotions, discrimination, Never going to change (even though they rethink EVERY SINGLE thing), no room for growth in career (it's very political, who you know..who you drink with..who you hang out with).No exit interview...or being the BEST place to work in Texas it doesn't see where it needs to improve or seem to care on how to fix it. Management is out of touch, but plays favorite.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to put "ownership" out there, see where you can take "ownership" and do something about it. If you are going to promote someone..follow thru with it and if they don't take it serious...do SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
