    I have been working at University of Maryland Medical System part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    12 hour shifts. Huge hospital and academics. Therefore, many opportunities in different departments.

    Cons

    Salaries are low. Top heavy (so many people in management). Parking sucks. Knowing that the hospital is steps away from 2 stadiums, convention center, an arena, casino, and who knows how much more, always traffic jams.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who will actually do the work.

    I have been working at University of Maryland Medical System full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I like that you are encouraged to get outside your comfort zone. All staff are responsible for making sure the patients and vistors have a positive experience.

    Cons

    At times some mangers can lean towards micro management. You hired the people. Trust them to do the job you hired them for without standing over top of them until they show you otherwise. A good leader builds up other leaders; not oppress and stifle. A good leader also does not show favoritism even if it is present. There also seems to be a mismanagement in priorities. Lastly, seniority means absolutely nothing. You could be working for this company 100 years and someone else comes and works (1)one year with less experience and they will get a higher or equal pay rate to yours. What sense does that make?

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving management bonuses that the supporting staff worked for and deserve. Continue to make a presence throughout your assigned campus. Work on motivation and incentives. Adults don't work for bubblegum and lollipops. Let's keep it real; money motivates people plain and simple.

    Pros

    The people are nice and the health insurance is great.

    Cons

    The department I work for is in constant restructuring mode. I have gotten moved around constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. The organization has some great staff but I wonder if management knows what half the employees do.

    Pros

    Benefits are cheap, coffee is free, free parking is a plus.

    Cons

    Lack of career development and growth opportunities. They are not shy about not promoting career development, they could care less as a organization about retaining talent and have no problem making this known. Go here if you want your IT carrear to die. Advancement is based on who you know here not your qualifications, certifications, skill or education. No respect for internal employees seniority, Unethical management. Jobs sit unfilled for months at a time. Candidates are constantly either backing out before their start date, or quitting shortly after starting due to the work environment so your team will always be short staffed and you will always be doing multiple people's work with no bonuses or so much as a thank you. Internal candidates are treated as second class when it comes to job openings. Working in their Data Center in Columbia was a nightmare. Upper management is old and out of touch with today's industry. This place is your textbook good ol boys club. In the entire time I worked there I did not see a single person promoted. To even move to another team you must basically get down on your knees and beg for a opportunity, if they consider you an outsider or you are not buddied up with someone up the food chain in management you don't have a chance no matter what your qualifications are.

    Advice to Management

    Try treating your employees with dignity and respect. Get rid of these old tired directors and bring some fresh ideas in.
