Great place to work! The hardest part of the job was understanding and reading the doctors writing. Management in my department could have been a little better, but others were awesome!

Great place to work. Voted top 10 hospitals in the country.
Administrative Assistant/Program Coordinator (Current Employee), Nashville, TNMay 21, 2014
Pros: good benefits, discount on vanderbilt football/baseball tickets, advancement is always a possibility
Cons: have to pay for parking to come to work, unless you ride public transportation
My typical day changes hour by hour, minute by minute. Because of my longevity of 16 years with the Institution, I'm a go-to person for questions and troubleshooting, especially within my department of over 200 staff members. Communication is mostly through emails, so I'm on the computer answering emails, setting up meetings for the department Administrative – more... Director, and composing documents most of the day. I supervisor four clerical staff helping them through situations that require my assistance on a daily basis, mostly answering questions. The hardest part of my job is trying to complete all tasks that need to be done in an eight hour period, which is why prioritizing and organizing is so important. The most enjoyable part of my job is the team atmosphere that is within the department and hospital as a whole. Everyone is always looking out for each other. – less

Worst Place To Work
Accounting (Current Employee), Nashville, TNMay 19, 2014
Pros: location
Cons: pay, benefits, communication, management, pto/worklife balance
In the past 2 years VUMC has taken away vacation time accrual, changed our future PTO accruals to much less than ever before, restricted promotions and growth, increased the amount you pay on healthcare coverage, and they refuse to pay reasonable salaries. I received 1 raise in the last 3 years, and it wasn't even enough to offset tax increases and – more... increases in what I have to pay for my health insurance. At one time VUMC was a wonderful place to work, but, since 2012, this place has gone down hill fast.

STAY AWAY! Especially administrative folks. They don't care a thing about you, and management is so disconnected from reality that it's scary. Communication and Pay are the worst I've ever seen. – less
