    I have been working at University of Minnesota Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced learning environment and the nurses never mind answering questions. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Management has their blatant favorites who can get away with anything. Mediocrity is not only tolerated but seemingly encouraged. The few hardworking nurses and aides who run their rear ends off the whole shift have to do so because many are lazy and more than willing for others to do their work for them.

    Advice to Management

    If people are leaving your unit in droves because the environment is so "cliquey" and bullying is allowed to perpetuate to the point of sending staff home in tears, there is something VERY wrong and something needs to be done about these staff members who are bullying those they have seniority over. Also stop turning a blind eye to some people using their phones and sitting around but pouncing on others and scolding them for checking the time or updating their schedules.

    I worked at University of Minnesota Medical Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice laboratory co-workers. Performing quality work/results you can be proud of.

    Cons

    4 yr technologist make $4-5/hr more. That's fine, they deserve it (mostly). You'll be doing the same work as a Technologist but you always have someone you can ask questions from without feeling stupid. What really upset me however is the discrepancy between MLT 2 yr degrees and phlebotomist/Care Technician who only have/need a 6 month certificate pay rates because there is none. LCTs make the same or more than MLTs if they've been at the job a year or more longer. However, the job duties are vastly different. A MLT does all the job duties that an LCT does plus all the duties of a MT but we get unfair compensation.
    Burn-out is a major issue too. You're expected to do the work of 1.5-2 people everyday and more so when there are call-ins. Nurses are disrepectful and mean and there are no consequences for their behavior. (Of course there are a few respectful or kind nurses but it's like finding a unicorn.) You're always asked to do "more". When you do go above and beyond, it becomes expected as the norm. Their motto is: The enemy of "The Best" is "Good Enough". So doing "Good Work" isn't good enough.

    Advice to Management

    Pay fairly.
