    I have been working at University Medical Center of Southern Nevada full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Retirement and longevity if you have been a long term employee, if not, don't bother. Free insurance(for now) if you're a full time employee. Lots of vacation time, but holidays are included in that accrual. So is your first 16 hours if you call off sick. Equipment is pretty decent here, other techs that work other places say it's best around.

    Cons

    Read the SEIU contract!!! It is awful. Don't waste your money unless you need protection. Radiology mgmt does not follow contractual rules. They make their own rules and if you complain, your subject to bullying and harassment. Patients are not the best, but it's the county hospital, it is what it is.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage a department! This is a county hospital, not a private hospital where your used to doing as you please! If you don't like UMC's philosophy, go find a job in private sector!

    I worked at University Medical Center of Southern Nevada full-time

    Pros

    Retirement, health and dental benefits are above market longevity pay. Location is central to the Las Vegas Valley. Reputable physicians and quality of care.

    Cons

    Leadership as of 2015 at the CEO level is tone-deaf, lacking of vision and unable to listen to front line UMC employees. Recent changes in leadership have created a power vacuum at the top that has gone unchecked and inexperienced leadership starts each day behind the 8 ball. The poor culture at the top has trickled down to the rank and file quickly. There is seemingly no desire to entertain inout or opinions from the clinical level. Everyone keeps their heads down and remains uninvolved while top level executives muddle through seemingly without a plan or direction.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to county commissioners and community board members would be to seek top leaders skilled in running a business, leadership, and the creation of culture for key leadership roles. In the meantime, reassess the qualifications of those in key spots. The pattern of promoting by attrition is failing.
