    I have been working at University of Miami full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I honestly that I have found no pros in this position

    Cons

    Working at the University of Miami-Uhealth Supply Chain Management is completely unbearable to say the least. I say this as a current employee who must endure this painful environment as the economy is doing not so great. You get a very low salary. They expect you to complete tasks without giving you clear instructions, and then, you receive a reprimand for not doing the task well. You get blamed for explaining your inability to meet deadlines because other departments or vendors have not been very responsive. On top of that, they assign a multitude of projects with unreasonable timeline for completion. Also, expect to receive a performance evaluation just a month after starting your job and constantly being reminded of your 6 month probationary period. Employee must pay for Parking too.
