    I have been working at UPMC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work-life balance is respected, processes exist for almost everything, great networking, positive environment, respectable mission of improving health care, many opportunities to grow by moving around to different areas within the UPMC family

    Cons

    Can be tough to move up in your current department/position, lots of red tape, slow pace can be frustrating. Can be hard to connect your effort to the success of the company, due to the large size.

    Advice to Management

    Be more nimble to respond to worker feedback. Be more open to adapting existing processes. Continue to respect employees work/life balance, and provide more opportunities to grow in current role/dept.

    Pros

    The company has a lot of opportunity.

    Cons

    My department is not a very encouraging environment. As someone on the autism spectrum it was very hard to get help (I was made fun of by other employees and had a hard time communicating with management what ASD was.) I had to reach out to sr. H.R for help and I still don't feel like I'm part of the team. Not a very welcoming environment.

    Advice to Management

    Be more inclusive.

    I have been working at UPMC part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strive to be Top Ten hospital System, supportive of RN's with Masters degrees, but less so of BNS. Good health care benefits

    Cons

    Administration spends lots of money on the"extras", and on hiring and training instead of recognizing and being kind to current employees. High nursing turnover because they short-staff floors, instead of recognizing that adequate number of nursing staff is what drives patient satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Live up to the values you preach. Provide on-campus parking for employees

    I have been working at UPMC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    22 days of PTO per year.

    Most managers seem to let you take an hour off for a doctor's appointment without a problem.

    My coworkers are nice.

    Cons

    I had better health insurance at a failing startup than I do at an actual health insurance provider.

    The pay is low, so they have low quality people. They don't know how to do their jobs or they're very slow. No one wants to move quickly around here. It took me 7 months to get a server to implement source control, and that was after another person had been pushing for it for the 7 months before that.

    Everyone seems to be stuck in their ways. My managers don't listen to my ideas and aren't willing to implement newer technologies that would make their lives easier.

    No administrative rights on your own computer. I understand why, but for a technical person, it can be really difficult to live with.

    Strict dress code, depending on your department.

    You can work remotely but it's difficult to do unless they issue you a laptop.

    Pros

    Large progressive healthcare system, many opportunities to move around and grow within the company, good benefits

    Pay doesn't equal your value, bureaucratic in nature, culture

    Advice to Management

    Employees are not truly valued. Realize that employees are the ONLY source of a sustainable competitive advantage.

    Pros

    All staff work hard as a team to provide best possible outcomes for patients. Best medicine hands down. State of the art equipment and evidence based reviews and practice.

    Cons

    Salaries below industry standards. Benefits counted as part of compensation package. Annual training includes video stating it is not a requirement to provide ANY break during an 8 hour shift.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that "open door policy" literally means "I will listen to your concerns and work with you to find solutions.

    I worked at UPMC (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Diverse array of pts, mostly friendly workers/staff

    Cons

    Poor management (not personal/cold), I was also, as a soon to be RN, disappointed to see some of the current staff nurses acting unprofessionally, unsafely, complaining about pts or having to come to work (guess what, they don't want to be in the hospital either).

    Advice to Management

    Communicate regularly with ALL staff
