    I have been working at UMass Memorial Medical Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful staff, excellent doctors and nurses! Team work is excellent in my department

    Cons

    Never know if you will continue to have employment because of numerous layoffs. Poor financial management has gotten the best of this facility

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Immediate management excellent. This facility is more concerned with erecting new buildings than having enough staff to manage the care that truly sick patients require. Keep staffing levels adequate so that you can maintain a good reputation with the general public

    I worked at UMass Memorial Medical Center

    Pros

    The benefits at UMass are really good. Excellent health care, competitive PTO/sick leave, good low-cost day-care. The IT department is kept rather lean in its staffing levels, so there are enough avenues where a person can really take on new responsibility and carve their own path. It feels alot like a start-up company.

    Cons

    Politics abound. Not just at the C-level, but permeating through all levels of the organization. Reviews and raises are arbitrary, not based at all on your performance but on the discretion of the manager. People get hired because of who they know, not necessarily because they are qualified. Any form of promotion, raise, advancement, or betterment within the organization can only come after a good deal of politicking and selling oneself. As a result, there is a good deal of personal drama that is exposed throughout the work day, often to an unprofessional extent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Any senior level person who was there when UMass and Memorial merged in 2000 needs to go. Umass would be far better off if its managers were outsiders who were not part of any of the politics of the last 10 years. The place just needs a good house cleaning - the workers that are there are great.
