    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits, great atmosphere of teamwork and concern for patient care. This is a delightful place to work on the whole.

    The things you'd experience anywhere. The occasional difficult coworker, shift work, weekend work. Nothing really specific to the university that I would complain about.

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

    Pros

    Fantastic working staff. Ability to truly help patients and make an impact on their future. Decent salary with CME opportunities.

    Cons

    Little movement for salary increase, dealing with supervisor drama, lack of collaboration, some lazy staff. Need extreme self confidence in yourself to make it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and become involved.

    I have been working at University of Rochester Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are really great. Health insurance and 4013b/Roth ira match is excellent. Tuition waiver program is also amazing: 90-95% covered.

    Cons

    The UofR is very siloed. It is hard to get departments to work well with each other. This can make working there difficult since there is a necessity for cross-departmental collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    There isn't enough transparency and most people feel as though leadership is out of touch. There is a very us vs them mentality.
