    Pros

    The best perk of working here is the teaching-learning environment. The providers are always excited and willing to teach others. This helps nurses and other team members to provide exceptional care for our patients. We provide services and and specialty care like no other. It's the best place I've ever worked!

    Cons

    None - nowhere is perfect, but this place is close!

    Pros

    Excellent 401k match. Plentiful medical insurance options.

    Cons

    Negative culture based on distrust, gossip, false accusations, and assumptions. There is lack of empathy and integrity. HR experiences high turnover due to poor, unsupportive management, and snide co-workers. I've read all of the organization's reviews prior to mine and the common link is very apparent - HR needs to improve and be accountable. The management is demeaning rather than inspiring or motivating. Their idea of "coaching" is to place blame and shame, instead of inquiring and expressing empathy, and offering to help by provide alternatives or solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Assume positive intent. Stop pitting team members against each other. Be more mindful in communicating and the delivery of said communication. Own your mistakes and commit to improving. Otherwise, you'll lose quality talent and the high turnover will continue.

    I have been working at UMPhysicians full-time

    Pros

    Work with complex patients and get experience with conditions not seen in a typical healthcare setting. Work with some of the top doctors in the state and get to be part of new studies to develop new treatments. I love my coworkers, everyone is passionate about their job!

    Cons

    Frequent turn over of staff and new managers. Company isn't always the most organized, policies are different at each campus.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep consistent with policies through out the MHealth campuses and continue to acknowledge staff for all the hard work they do.

    I have been working at UMPhysicians full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I work in the ophthalmology clinic and the doctors and my coworkers are great. It's a very interesting place to work especially for an COT who would like to get exposure to every sub specialty.

    Cons

    The company is apparently not doing well right now. We are told that UMPhysicians is massively in the hole and there is a hiring freeze. We have had multiple staff members quit and have been unable to re hire for their positions. It seems to be difficult to even recruit quality people to work here. Getting to the office and the parking is an enormous pain. Parking is partially paid for but the employee does pay for parking. There isn't any room in the close ramps for new employees - they have to get on a waiting list for a closer ramp and park in one that isn't even on the U campus over a mile away and either walk or take a shuttle. The upper management here seems to have no idea what is actually going on in the clinics, in my opinion. There are so many "big picture" things they seem to work on that aren't relevant to the certain smaller clinics. Our managers are in CONSTANT meetings and really don't have much of a presence in the actual clinics. There is a lot of waste via purchasing equipment that is not wanted/needed and then on the flip side not purchasing things we do need. For a university setting I would appreciate better equipment to work with - our topographers are a complete joke. I don't know how we run a cornea clinic with the equipment we have. Our wait times in the clinic are absolutely horrendous due to the ratio of staff-patients. We charge a lot of money for eye examinations and our pay doesn't reflect that. The benefits are decent but not nearly in line with places like Health Partners, Park Nicollet, Allina, Fairview, etc. Those places all pay way more for ophthalmic technicians as well. Overall it isn't a bad place to work, there are lot of things that need to be worked on but I'm hopeful they can change. It would be a great place to start out and get a lot of experience if you don't mind the parking situation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting so many needless extra work on employees. Let them do the job they are hired to do. Nursing staff and technicians shouldn't be spending time setting goals and doing audits - that is what management or compliance should be doing. All of these things take a lot of time that we are already pressed for. We are under staffed and under appreciated and given a ton of busy work. If you want the patient care experience to be better, let the clinics each handle themselves and do what they need to do for their clinic and stop micromanaging everything.

    Pros

    Benefits, flexibility, discount parking, good part of mpls to work in

    Cons

    No accountability. Management is incompetent and extra work is given to you because of this. Lots of talk but no action. Management wants to be involved in everything but does nothing. Pointless meetings all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and don't ask for advice or suggestions for improvement if you're going to not listen.
