    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

    Pros

    Great staff to work with. There is room for career growth.

    Cons

    Staff turn over, short staffing--seems to be ubiquitous across many health care systems though.

    Advice to Management

    Need better ways to show appreciation for bedside nurses!

    I have been working at UPMC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Caring staff, willing to work my schedule around appointments I have scheduled already. Great Benefits. A lot of great team members, nurses, cna, dietary, housekeeping and our huc's alike.

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours which is expected in our field, some staff not willing to be team players.

    Advice to Management

    Try to find mpre staff who genuinely cares about their patients and not kust there for paycheck.

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

    Pros

    Pay and location. 3 of 7 therapists are quality workers. Equipment is 9 years old, but very reliable, good biomedical support, department is very clean

    Cons

    On call with no on-call pay; difficult doctors (monetary motives only), virtually absent management, several longtime employees work by their own rules with no adherence to policy. Patient demographic is very poor, very uneducated, and very non-compliant...Frustrating work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Enforce the policies which are in place. A few bullies run this department. Many therapists not formally trained, very aged staff, not welcome to new methods or ideas.
    One therapist does not perform daily duties at all, has been reported to management numerous times with management acknowledgment of the issues but with no action taken.

    Pros

    Awesome health benefits, 401k, and pto.

    Cons

    Employees cannot eat health benefits, or afford to go anywhere with paid time off. Most employees are just getting by.

    Advice to Management

    Look at loyal staff doing above and beyond for advancement, only keep staff who at the very least do what they are paid to do well.
