Clinical Support Tech II (Former Employee), Rochester, NY – November 20, 2013
Pros: long breaks, intelligent and dedicated employees.
Cons: i was to hot in the lab coats and the chairs were not comfortable.
Microbiology Specimen Receiving Technicians work the evening shift (4pm - 12:30) and alternating weekends.
I loved the pace and the impact that my work had on the health of patients. Just the right balance of variety and repetition. I loved the opportunity to see the real world applications of the sciences courses that I had taken in school.
I learn – more... best from reading material independently and then practicing it. Most topics were taught verbally and dependent upon what specimens were received and staffing. The work environment was too distracting for me.

Systems Admistrator (Current Employee), Rochester, NY – November 12, 2013
Pros: tuition benefit (while we still have one)
Cons: pay for parking, low pay, no place to advance
The University of Rochester is the largest employer in the city of Rochester but it is far from the best. Parking is and always will be an issue as well as low pay and no ability to advance your career here. I enjoy working with my coworkers but that is where the pros stop.
Good place to work if you can tune out upper management.
Food and Nutrition Supervisor (Current Employee), Rochester, NY – November 12, 2013
Pros: good vacation time, benefits, healthcare
Cons: schedules, the union, management.
It's a rewarding yet frustrating experience. Every day is different but yet it's the same results. Management from top to bottom is unorganized and sometimes very unprofessional. The supervisor teams are the reasons for the success but it goes unnoticed. The supervisor coworkers are great to work with and the union staff is good for the most park. The – more... hardest part of the job is the overwhelming variety of shifts. In any given week, a supervisor could work four different shifts, including an overnight. Doesn't make for a wonderful sleep schedule. The best part is the benefits and vacation time. It accumulates pretty quickly and the health insurance is cheap but very good. The overall experience has been slightly above average. If you can tune out management while still getting the job done and improving the operation, it's a good place to work. Just have to keep that fine line. – less
Food and Nutrition Supervisor (Former Employee), Rochester, NY – November 6, 2013
Pros: every other weekend off. in food service that is rare
No day was ever the same working in a hospital. Having restaurant management experience then going here for every other weekend off was nice. Its can be very organized and chaotic at the same time with such a large operation. Management will back there supervisors in any case. I developed great relationships with my superiors. They are a union house – more... and there is management v union seen a lot. Hardest part of my job was getting to know some patients, seeing them daily or weekly, and you know why they aren't there anymore. – less
