Mental Health Associate (Mental Health Worker) (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – January 18, 2018
it has its pro and cons. I think working here is a great experience if your working under the right management direction. Compensation is great. Only thing that I do wish they change is more overtime because that is not offered.
I enjoyed working as a team Learned new things Helped train new staff members Management needs to work as a unit and not as individuals There need to be adequate coverage when staff members go to lunch or leave to go home
Meet great people, learned new things, good benefits
understaffed, no communication, couldn't leave area during break
At university of Maryland medical center we work as a family and we treat our patient as if they were our family
Bone Morrow Tech/Phlebotomy Tech/Patient Care Tech (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – November 30, 2017
The pay was good if I need time off for any emergency they were understand. I love that they has cousler for us if we had problems at home or work. If I need help finically I could depend on my coworker to help knowing that I was a single mom
I enjoyed working for this company but the management were too friendly with the staff and it caused a lot of conflict. Also when I was supplemental staffing I only received $4.50 for working holidays and it was pretty tough working there.
Susan Carey - Manager (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD 21201 – November 26, 2017
I like working at University of Maryland. I would only like to be compensated comfortably enough to pay bills without it being a struggle. Working in my department is rewarding and has allowed me to consider other options to broaden my experience. I like working with educators.

Electronic Medical Records volunteer (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – November 8, 2017
Over the course of many years, when I volunteered at HIM UMMC, I have build confidence and I have developed knowledge and skills during that time that would serve me well in transitioning to the role of Medical Record
Overall UMMC is a good place to work. It is fast-paced environment with many protocols in place to ensure safe practice to both the health care providers and the clients. Education is very important and the facility promotes it along with team work.
Clinical Nurse II (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – November 6, 2017
Working on an acute care unit is fast paced and can be stressful but also very rewarding. I have learned a lot about team building and the importance of contributing input via unit based governance to provide better care to patients. The manager promotes a caring work culture to benefit the patients and also the employees. The hardest part of the job are the hours. The most enjoyable part of the job is having relationships with patients and the rapport among the staff.
This is a great place to develop a lot of clinical skills and hone critical thinking skills.
I had some great co-workers there, some people have various race, religions or creed that can make them easy to offend even with regular conversation, however this is also something that is becoming more and more in regular life now. Over all I had a great experience. Just wish I had more room to move around to different departments. Moving up, or lateral in the facility can be a real challenge, I felt a little pigeon held into my position.
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – October 30, 2017
On the unit I worked on things worked well as long as you are willing to be a tattletale. I am an adult and I know how to work out problems with other adults without getting physical or emotional about it. Sometime adults do not get along and when they do not you need to know how to defuse the problem before it gets any more out of hand.
Scheduling management, getting authorizations for all radiology studies,and scheduling appointments. The work environment is great, there is really no hard part and the most enjoyable part is working with the patients
The real saving grace to this place is that it is close to home. Since everyone knows everyone, there's no real discipline. Even though this hospital is affiliated with the University of Maryland, it doesn't follow the guidelines for a University. The majority of the lifers there are still stuck in the Fallston General mindset and can't seem to understand that the times are changing. Free parking is a bonus. I wouldn't be treated here if I were on my deathbed. The pay is terrible, offset only by the fact that I save money on gas and parking.
