Janitorial Worker (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – May 7, 2017
I enjoyed working there they always kept me on my feet. Showed me the importance of respect as well as work can be fun. The hardest part for me was working around patients andto make them feel as comfortable as possible.

UPMC is a great place to work, I have been able to advance in my career and the tuition benefits are great. I feel that nurses, in general, are not paid well, this is not a UPMC phenomenon, it is a national one.
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – April 12, 2017
This job is really good for getting to know patient's and having an understanding of how to speak to people. It is crucial experience for anyone hoping to be a nurse, doctor, or work in the healthcare field.
Contact center specialist 2 (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – April 12, 2017
I enjoyed working for the company and the people that I worked with, there is an opportunity for advancement after 1 year of service , once you receive your annual raise you must wait 6 months before you can apply for another position so basically you cannot advance for 18 months from your current position
Referral Communications Coordinator (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – April 7, 2017
A very stressful yet rewarding position. Requires fine attention to detail and the ability to work under constant stress. Rewarding due to the fact that once a case is opened, the ref-com agent is responsible for a patient's transfer from one facility to another under the premise that the patient is suffering from a life threatening condition.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Squirrel Hill, PA – April 2, 2017
Be sure to choose which part of UPMC you are working for wisely. I have worked at Heritage and Seneca long term care skilled facilities and both places were terrible. Resident to Aid ratio daylight is 10-15/1 and overnight is 25-30/1. Not enough staffing and coworkers treat each other terrible.
Nurse Practitioner (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – March 31, 2017
This company is out of control. Providers are just commodities. No one is valued. We are all disposable. The only people that are successful are people that will overlook the good of the people to fall in line with what is best for the UPMC bottom line. The management and leadership are simply awful. The only thing UPMC has going for it is the number of jobs, but there are more options available now. UPMC is not the only job option. Many non-upmc jobs pay significantly more anyway. When I left a weight was lifted. Do not do it. It is not worth the frustration. Employees deserve better. Attend a local NP networking event or the PA Coalition of NP conference and do your research before accepting a position with UPMC.
Claims Examiner (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – March 29, 2017
I love my job and the people I work with. UPMC is a great company to work for. the management are friendly and very great to work with. when I request time off or need to take care of things for my son they are always willing to make things work.
Manager (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – March 23, 2017
Under paid and even more alerting UNDER VALUED! I would never recommend someone to work for this greedy company. The annual raises are at most 3% making obtaining the upper range for a position impossible. They have healthcare professionals over a barrel because there are limited places to work.
