I've been here for 3 years. 3 years too long. I have never worked for a company that works so hard to keep their employees down and as far from advancement as possible. You have no voice here and unfortunately patients don't seem to come first.
Medical Receptionist (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – June 19, 2018
My work nights was calm and quiet. I learned to work productively and alone. Management was trust worthy, because I was allowed to work alone and manage myself at night. The workplace culture was very goaled oriented and pleasant. The hardest part of the job was staying busy, because I worked the hours of 10pm-6am and it was not much work for me to do, so I created work for myself. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alone.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Minneapolis, MN outpatient surgery – May 30, 2018
The work life balance is amazing! I don’t work weekends, holidays, or call. My compensation was matched from my last job, benefits are wide range. Management is what crashes this employment rating. My manager doesn’t enforce rules and policies well, is very lax on everything, and always says he doesn’t want to micromanage, but doesn’t manage in general. Plus a director who feels she has always one up you.
Compensation, work/life balance, benefits
Management, policies being followed only when it benefits managemebt
I loved working for UMP. The organization was always working on very unique projects and truly making a difference in people's lives. The people who work in the accounting & finance departments are really great. Awesome place to work!
I interviewed for this position twice. The UMP clinic seems to have high turn over because this position has been posted twice before. During my interviewing I received rude, condescending and ridiculing behavior. I even witnessed eye rolling between two staff members during the interview process. Very belittling.
Not nice to prospective employees during the interview
Indexer (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – March 29, 2018
I learned a lot about indexing in this position. My team leaders were very helpful in teaching me about this position. My supervisor did not communicate with me very much in helping me or directing me in my work. He seemed more interested in working with the full time staff, than me who was part time. He did not seem very certain about what my hours should be. I was working as a contract worker with Fairview Hospital Ridges in Burnsville. I was receiving my work through the computer from Fairview Ridges. They did not always have enough work for me, and my supervisor called me and told me that I was being laid off within a week of being employed. I thought the productivity standards were a little high which were 90 pages to be indexed an hour on the computer.
Very friendly helpful staff. An excellent learning experience
Productivity standards were too high. Staff uncertain about the amount of work to be distributed.
Pediatric Cardiac Unit Volunteer (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – March 26, 2018
Volunteered with children in the pediatric-cardiac unit. One of the most rewarding and fulfilling volunteer positions around. Able to play, hold and spend quality time with young ones who await surgery, transplant or treatment.
Certified Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – February 22, 2018
It was a fun and fast pace work environment and there was something new everyday. I love working with pediatric patients. I realized how much I learned from working there. You learn something new everyday.
Surgery Scheduling Coordinator (Current Employee) – Edina, MN – January 9, 2018
A very wonderful company to work for. I have been blessed to work with some of the top Cardiologists/Electrophysiologist in this region. This is a FANTASTIC job that I really do not want to leave, but I have children in their upper 20's that work in the Dallas area and I want to move back to Dallas to be closer to them.
Specialist in scheduling TAVR procedures in cardiology, for which I was specifically asked to do
QA (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – January 9, 2018
My day was of one; I was given a lot of information on the culture and management of the business from those who have been there a long time; it was much less than positive. There are a lot of ideas and desires but nothing being set into motion. I think the potential is there and success is not impossible.
Stimulating work, good colleagues and patients; poor work/life balance
RN Care Coordinator (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – December 28, 2017
I worked as an RN Coordinator in a hospital-based clinic on the University grounds. The work was mentally stimulating, and colleagues and patients were a positive part of the job. The work-life balance was more than I had bargained for, and I was regularly working much longer than the stated expectation just to get necessities done. I felt that we were spread much too thin regarding our team duties. Despite working with my manager about this problem, I grew to feel that things were not going to change anytime in the near or distant future, and I eventually made a decision to leave. This was disappointing because I felt that I was making a positive contribution to my patients, and I was learning much, but my family was paying too high of a price and I was increasingly exhausted. Additionally, as a new employee, I was on an extremely long wait list to get a contract parking spot (which still would have cost $75+ a month),. and my spot was years off; therefore, I walked about 3/4 of a mile from a remote parking lot into work each day which still cost just as much. The exercise was fine, but this only added to an already long work day. Even though a nice FTO package was included in my employment, it was difficult to prepare to take time off. The clinic had collaborative work spaces to promote a paperless environment so one didn't ever really know where you might sit each day or if there would even be a spot available. I often went to other areas of the building to set up my work space for a portion or all of the day.
Fun and mentally stimulating work; nice colleagues and patients
