    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 have been working at UPMC full-time

    Pros

    Good environment, stability, safe, clean

    Cons

    increasing health care costs for employees

    Advice to Management

    Instead of comparing job market salaries to other hospital systems you should compare the markets to medium to large biopharma as that is who is purging employees outside of the clinical nurse job classification. Regulatory, data, CRA, etc are all going to Pharma NOT AGH. Match salaries with them and a lower turnover rate will follow.
