    Pros

    Competitive Pay, benefits , incentive pay and flexible hours. Meet new people everyday. If you are a quick learner and not easily intimidated by strong personalities you will do well.

    Cons

    Jobs requires 80% travel. Lacks organization structure. Leadership is only in the title, lacks professionalism and does not promote professional development. Office Politics has no boundaries.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership positions should not just be a title. Supervisor and Managers should have emotional maturity- everyday should not be a bad day. Separate work and personal life. Ongoing supervisory training should be required. Support subordinates, and most importantly know what their subordinates daily duties.

    Pros

    Clean, Up to date facilities, with multiple high ranking specialities.

    Cons

    Poor business management, deplorable benefits and healthcare, highly political environment and power hierarchy that does not appreciate its more entry level, midleve employees but only places a premium on its highest paid individuals. Abysmal work life balance most employees are pushed to their limits and run ragged.

    Pros

    It was an honor to work with such a great group of outstanding physician's and supportive co-workers. We made a great team.

    Cons

    With the transition from an independent hospital to a larger system, the moral of phydicians and staff declined somewhat. Many changes occurred

    Advice to Management

    Your best loyal and dedicated employees do not always need degrees, experience proves much more than a piece of paper.

    Pros

    Work environment is slightly relaxed, coworkers are friendlier than other hospitals.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible (at least 30% below competing hospital), HR is a joke in helping employees, draconian policies are coming into place, parking is expensive and can be very difficult in assigned garages, scheduling for medical persons can be a huge headache, and UH does NOT seem to want to hire from within to improve their employees satisfaction and engagement

    Advice to Management

    1) large pay increases immediately 2) vastly decrease cost of parking by taking ownership of the garages 3) start hiring within from employees in a dead end job 4) model your health insurance plans similar to Cleveland Clinic

    I have been working at University Hospitals of Cleveland full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nurse-driven care, a teaching hospital, passionate colleagues if you're lucky. Management has given me a fair shake over the years and room to advance. Great people. I love UH nurses and am so grateful for the work they (we) do every day.

    Cons

    This hospital system is a place to work you til they grind your bones to dust. A paltry pension. I no longer harbor the illusion that I am irreplaceable in any respect despite years of knowledge, service, wisdom etc etc. Hospital insurance is a sad irony if you're an unlucky soul with a chronic illness.

    Advice to Management

    Your tuition reimbursement program for nurses could use a robust cash infusion. Better pay for nurses aides - without them, your nurses are the ones who bear the brunt of their discontent and abuse. Here's a jolly notion: LET US UNIONIZE WITHOUT RETRIBUTION.
