    I have been working at University of New Mexico Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    UNMH is very busy serving the Albuquerque community, but the administration always makes time to walk the floors and help if needed. There is an emphasis on professional development, and tuition repayment is offered. I am very happy working here!

    Cons

    Understaffed, patients sometimes drunk or violent, parts of the hospital are old and have building maintenance issues, limited parking (hospital offers shuttle in from parking lot)

    Advice to Management

    Remember how hard your employees are working and try to not panic when online competencies aren't their priority. Overall, management is very fair.

    Pros

    Excellent teamwork, clinical career ladder, Shared governance model used, supportive, accessible management,

    Cons

    Minimal cost of living raises, little incentive for retention

    Advice to Management

    Increased wages to be market competitive. An 11 year employee has received few raises and supervises RN with little experience who were hired at a starting rate a few dollars an hour less than experienced RN. People stay at UNMH because of the awesome teamwork and community mission, but it is disappointing that less attention is placed on retention.

    I worked at University of New Mexico Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Most of the techs are a lot of fun to work with. Working with the kids is really rewarding.

    Cons

    Everyone in a position of authority here is childish, vindictive, irrational, and dishonest.

    Advice to Management

    Start prioritizing patient care and morals over cattiness, power trips, and politics, before you end up on the news, or in a lawsuit, because of how poorly the facility is run.

    I worked at University of New Mexico Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Computerized self scheduling gives great flexibility and allows you work around your family life and schedule. Teaching hospital is a wonderful environment to learn in. Staff is helpful and supportive. Diverse patient population. Evidence based practice used widely throughout the hospital. Efforts are made to stay up to date on best practices, policies, and trends to promote best outcomes for patients and safest envrionment for workers.

    Cons

    A little too micromanaged. Inconsistent pay raises, and no recognition or incentive for seniority or longevity with the company. New grads being hired in at always increasing competitve pay, but no compensation or change in pay scale for those already working there. Rumor is, you have to quit and get rehired for your experience to be compensated for and that just isn't the right way to do things.

    Advice to Management

    Show a little more appreciation for senior staff and it will go a long way! Many feel disposable/replacable. It doesnt have to be in the form of pay (although that's nice), but any incentives would be appreciated.
