CHP is a beautiful hospital
Patient Information Coordinator (Current Employee), PittsburghApril 20, 2015
I love CHP, its a beautiful hospital, but in my current dept there is no respect or recognition from physician to staff. It's very sad. Unless your a physician or a nurse, your looked down upon

Hard to Move UP
Patient Information Coordinator (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PaApril 7, 2015
Pros: PTO
Cons: Hard to move up, Have to use PTO for Sick Days
UPMC is not to bad to work for, however it is hard to move up in the Company unless you are related to someone higher up. Hours are not bad, it is nice to not work nights or weeekends. The pay is not great at all and the benefits are not the best as well. Also it it unfair to have been hired for one office but forced to travel with out travel pay until recently.

Choose anywhere else
Children's Hospital Patient Access Specialist II (Current Employee), Pittsburgh,PAMarch 26, 2015
Pros: Very little is expected of you.
Cons: Very little is given to you.
Turnover is incredibly high for a reason. The pay is lower than you would receive working anywhere else. The only point in working here is to gain experience to move on to a better company.

Progressive Healthcare IDN
Finance Director (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAMarch 25, 2015
Pros: Exceptional Leadership
UPMC was an organization that was constantly transforming and looking into the future of healthcare. The organization was not only focused on delivering the right care at the right time, but the finance division was filled with top talent. Not only did they focus on the financial stability of the organization, but they also valued talent management, development, recognition and retention.

Multiple Roles (Mental Health)
Crisis Clinician & Milieu Therapist (Former Employee), Pittsburgh (Mainly) and Seneca, PAMarch 18, 2015
Pros: decent insurance, pto accrual begins at day 1
Cons: breaks as a crisis clinician are a rarity, non-traditional hours
In mental health you rarely expect a routine day. It generally changes from day to day. However, management for the most part was genuine and supportive of their staff. I enjoyed being able to work with very experienced colleagues who were excellent assets in our line of work.

Lacks IT leadership and vision
SENIOR PROGRAMMER (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAMarch 12, 2015
Pros: was once an upbeat environment to work focused on patient care.
Cons: now an arguably toxic environment for it workers - depending on your supervisor.
The IT organization is in the midst of a multi-year restructuring. The early phases consisted of cost-cutting by eliminating the higher salaries. What remains are the cheaper, less experienced, questionably motivated folks who are only concerned about the bottom line and preservation of their own job.

Stressful
Systems Analyst (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAMarch 11, 2015
Stressful work environment that will run you into the ground if you allow. Treated like a number and expected to drop everything for your job when you should not even be working. Bad benefits for a health care organization.

Intense and busy place to work
Surgical Technologist (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAMarch 5, 2015
Pros: facility was based within close proximity to the university of pittsburgh
Cons: very crowded
UPMC, a Level 1 trauma facility with world renowned reputation, was an interesting place to work. Each day there was fast paced and filled with many interesting cases. I l gained an enormous amount experience in many different disciplines including, but not limited to, neurosurgery, endocrine and general surgeries. My co workers were very well-versed in all aspects of their respective cases. At UPMC, I learned how best to manage my time as we were always very busy. I was able to become proficient at each case I was assigned to. The hardest part of the job was probably, just having graduating from school, was to adjust to such a fast paced environment. The most enjoyable part of my time there was knowing I was part of a team doing our best to provide the best care available.
