Social Media and Marketing Assistant (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – October 30, 2017
I worked part-time in Gables one. It was interesting to see the technicalities behind the university, and how much work goes into keeping the University into what it is. The workspace is flexible and a comfortable environment. Not too intimidating, everyone is just there to do their jobs.
Content heavy stimulating pastoral workplace in the heart of Coral Gables
Assoc Director Communications and PR (Current Employee) – Coral Gables, FL – October 27, 2017
For my brain which wants to be stimulated and learn new things every day higher education is the only place to work. On a daily basis I would go in not expecting any day to be typical in the UM Communications office. The number of possible media contacts that I would connect with daily could range from 5 to 25 and the subject matter experts they were seeking to interview on a variety of breaking news stories equally as wide ranging and sometimes unpredictable.
Beautiful location, great benefits, stimulating subject matter and co-workers, students, professors and campus vistors.
Politcs 101, low level of training especially in mangement roles, heavy administrative layer, hierarchical, hard to get promoted due to unfair nature of political environment at times.

I was involved in research at the department of gastroenterology. The research was to find the connections between autism and the microbiome. The University of Miami is a stron institution for research.
Service Response Representative (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – October 19, 2017
I must honestly say that while employed at The University of Miami Hospital, I learned how to be more compassionated. To see first hand the urgency and the need of the patients caused me to be more humble. However, the position was demanding and sometimes stressful, and at the same time exhilarating; with a diverse culture. The hardest part of the job was the division within the departments, and the most enjoyable part of the job, was knowing that I succeeded in making a patients' stay a little more comfortable.
Good place to learn about international relations as well as the best way to teach international relations as well as run a classroom, handle students, and maintain all logistics for the class as well as grading.
It was a great experience working with UM. For the position I took on the salary was reasonable base on my experience. We did have dead lines to meet, but what job doesn't. The best part I like was I was able to work self sufficiently. My superiors was not always down my throat on what I was doing. I got the job done and that is what mattered.

RN (Former Employee) – Florida – September 16, 2017
Potential to be a great place to work. You'll do fine if you show up and do what you're told with no question. When you start to question things you know are not right, you place a target on your back. Definitely a "this is how we've always done it" environment. Most employees have been with the company forever and do not appreciate correction. Language barriers in certain department make it a challenge to communicate important aspects of patient care. A very top heavy company in which those at the top are not in sync with the true operations of those they make decisions for. Company has done a great job in branding but once you're in and if you have any type of experience in an environment where nurses count you'll quickly see you're no longer there. Nurses have no voice. Nurse administrators do not speak up for what is right concerning nursing roles (ie.nurses placing orders for physicians that are clearly visible but just won't do it) as they are trying to keep their job. If you have a question about a policy/protocol, good luck trying to find one that has been properly reviewed and updated. If you're ready to be quiet in your nursing role or just do what you're told in effort to advance your career this is the place for you. If you want a place to take care of patients and go home, this is the place for you. If you're one that is highly motivated, driven by efforts to improve processes, an advocate for nursing you'll be okay for a short period and then find yourself exhausted when you learn your efforts aren't supported. No job is perfect, just depends what you're willingmore... to put up with.less
Data entry (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – September 1, 2017
The work is important but everything else is a typical job. Staff is friendly and helpful but management is sneaky and only promote and hire friends and family. No real chance for advancement if you not a friend.
