    Pros

    Decent pay and good hours.

    Cons

    Upper management is all about profit! They don't care how long you have been an employee for, they will eliminate your job if need be without understanding the importance of your role for patient care. They are broke now that Fairview has merged with Healtheast. UMMC wanted to take over FV but that didn't happen. FV is funding Healtheast now, which means UMP is going broke and they are making all sorts of cuts. I've been with the company for 4 years, and was just told by HR that my dept is being eliminated. The only way I can get my severance pay is to train the people who are replacing me for one whole month! What a slap on the face! Beware!

    Advice to Management

    Please put your employees first over profit.

    Pros

    Uniform allowance, nice clean building, MOST staff is friendly

    Cons

    Mgmt has NO idea how to keep employees. There is MAJOR turnover. Morale is VERY LOW. Tattling is encouraged. NO positive feedback. They toss people into departments they are not familiar with - "we will train you" never happens.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are people with lives and schedules. STOP messing with schedules and hours. Get to know your employees. Give a pat on the back now and again. STAY at work - managers are CONSTANTLY out of the building

    Pros

    It's a paycheck I guess.

    Cons

    If you are not in the union, UMP will walk ALL OVER you. The UMP structure is a bit strange. You can work in a department where some workers are union and others aren't. I happened to work for two different departments simultaneously. I was not in the union. One dpt had union workers, the other had none. World of difference in environments. When I came up for performance review in the non-union dpt, though there had been zero complaints about my performance during the year, surprise surprise ... suddenly I wasn't making enough effort, I was choosing to LEAVE ON TIME for my personal life instead of "doing what it takes." And I received no raise after a year of consistently showing up on time, contributing ideas, putting on a friendly face and really caring about helping our patients.
     At the dpt with union, I got a great review and a raise. Morale was noticeably better than the other dpt.

    Advice to Management

    To the non-union dpt managers: You acted like UMP marionettes, and it showed. UMP told you what to say and do to deny us raises, and I had zero respect for you after my review. (You better believe all those "mishaps" that suddenly happened in the dpt were directly related to your inability to do what was right.)

    I worked at UMPhysicians full-time

    Pros

    The new building looks nice.

    Cons

    Management in incompetent and the most unorganized I've ever seen in 18 years of working with different companies. Management uses their employees for their own benefit - they do not care about employees. All UMP cares about is money. Stay Far Away from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Quit.

    Pros

    Benefits, specifically the 401K and the employer HSA contribution.

    Cons

    Organizational instability. Management fails when listening to frontline staff. Parking. Expanded services while using a 9-5 allocated staffing model. The growing pains of the Clinics and Surgery Center; after 2 years, still having systemic issues.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Many of them have more experience, knowledge, and clinical prowess than management staff; but are almost always disregarded in their concerns.

    Pros

    I can't think of any Pros at this time!

    Cons

    Management is horrible and plays favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favoritism with employees that have been there longer and stop gossiping. Management please lead, and give some directions, Listen to your employees and don't ask for advice or suggestions for improvement if you're going to not listen. Stop turning 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 continue to lose quality talent and the high turnover will continue, and also stop micro-managing everything.

    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!
