    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.

    I worked at UPMC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Staff and management go above and beyond what is expected. I couldn’t have been happier working there. Upmc Hamot is one of the best places I’ve ever worked. I loved the location and you can’t beat the food.

    Cons

    Working hours can be demanding. My biggest disappointment was call and weekend and holiday hours which came with the job. Winters can be rough but it depends on if your a winter person or not.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers. More flexibility

    Pros

    Get to learn a lot, nice campus, opportunities to move up

    Cons

    They could pay their employees better

    PI's can be difficult to work with. They are all about their work and their study and forget that the people who work for them are human and not perfect

    Pros

    Great benefits and good pay for the position

    Cons

    Tough work environment, culture is mediocre

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate a better company culture. I understand hospitals are extremely trying places to work, but it can get extremely rough from time to time depending on the situation, the amount of short-staffing (fairly constantly short on personnel), and the like.

    Better communication and post job help if an employee is let go for no fault of their own.
