Management Analyst (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – February 5, 2018
At UMC in the IT department, the work environment is very hostile. Coworkers team up against others as well as management picks favorites. If you are not among the favorites, they work hard to pick apart your work and personality to find problems where they can fire you. I would not recommend working at UMC in the IT department. I do not have experience with the rest of the hospital so I am unable to review other departments.

Patient Account Representative (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – February 3, 2018
I’ve worked in the Business Office for years now it can be a decent place to work however upper management (the director) is very rude and unprofessional! Everyone knows it but does nothing about it probably out of fear of losing their job. Then you have the management that we must report to and most of them are also very unprofessional as well. They all abuse their authority and use the majority of the day socializing with the exception of one. The focus in my department is bringing in the money but unlike the private sector we do not receive bonuses when we make goal. From what I’ve heard upper management gets the bonus but what did they do to get the goal? They don’t put the work in. We already don’t get paid what we truly deserve. Only those who have been there 10+ are making good money.
Management Analyst (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – January 14, 2018
Typical 8 hour work day and a great place to learn facets of Heathcare, the middle management that exists acts as buffer from current new management that is trying to change the culture. The most difficult part of working there is the existing middle management that manages with the McGregor theory x attitude. The people that work there are very talented and take pride in there responsibilities, I might add that this is only my opinion.

UMC is a great place to work from great co-workers and other ancillary staff. The medical benefits out way the salary with( cal days )which are vacation days that can take off when you want to if you have accrued enough hours by working your full time hours. The emergency department never has a dull moment its a nonstop rollercoaster ride from start to finish with a diverse amount patients from all backgrounds and ethnicity.

Witheld (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – April 9, 2017
UMC is uniquely positioned to provide premium health care services including Level 1 Trauma and Burn for the region. It is undergoing great changes and opportunities are available to participate in the change.
Challenges exist as a County organization, with management having to work with overhead and having to compete against private sector hospitals whom are nimble and endowed with newer facilities. When the challenges are overcome, UMC will become a greater power in the region in providing first class health care with an exceptional EMR solution.
