    I have been working at UPMC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management that works along side the staff. Good teamwork in a difficult situation in regards to staffing. Benefits such as insurance and vacation comparable to other local health Care facilities. Monies supplied for educational opportunities. Tuition reimbursement supplied.

    Cons

    Not enough staff. Unsafe ratios at 1 to 6. Continual open shifts which cause schedule shortages. Hires inexperienced graduate nurses in a specialty unit. Sometimes one experienced nurse on shift and GN's fill the rest of the shift. Wages are not comparable or competitive with other local facilities.

    Advice to Management

    Become more competitive in order for staff retention.

    I have been working at UPMC full-time

    Pros

    PTO accrues rapidly. Most hospitals you work 12 hr shifts, 3 days a week

    Cons

    A lot of scrambling going on. Lack of communication between management and workers across the board. Leaders at he top (managers, senior managers, etc..) don't really know much about the job and they make a lot of unnecessary changes without consulting staff.
