This is not a good place to work unless you are a professor/manager/doctor.
Administrative Coordinator, Dean's Office (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYApril 22, 2019
This is not a good place to work unless you are a professor/manager/doctor.
One of the worst aspects of working here is PARKING, where you have to park near the airport and take a shuttle in to wherever you work. For me, this added at least 20 minutes to the commute and worse if you miss the shuttle and have to take the next one.
Extremely hierarchical culture. Not much room for advancement. Compensation is relatively low, although benefits are decent.

Will take care of you as long as you are never challenge and willing to put your ethics in your back pocket. Never try and question the old culture or pay the ultimate price
Pros
Most of the people outside leadership are great
Cons
Leadership cares more about money then doing the right thing

good place to study
staff (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYMarch 21, 2019
a good university to study, but a bit of stressful, people are nice and helpful. Hardest part will be how to advance your career after that, not that much opportunities.

Hectic but fun
OR Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYMarch 14, 2019
Working at the University where I work is always fun. You never know what type of day you're walking into or what you're walking into. Everyone is fun to work with and it's a safe and effective work environment.

toxic environment and very low pay
Area Administrator, Residential Life (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYFebruary 28, 2019
Toxic environment and very low pay.
Very little room for advancement unless you know the right people.
Cronyism is the culture. Very little training. Lacks diversity in management.

Fast paced
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYFebruary 25, 2019
The hardest part of this job was managing the work load as well as keeping up with the pace.
The best part about this job is that I was able to manage the work load and keep up with the pace.
University of Rochester allowed me to see and build on my potential to succeed

Good place to work
Health Project Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYJanuary 25, 2019
Workplace culture is different depending if you work in the music school, edu side or hospital. Each is it's own entity. With a company this large there is variety of different environments.
Pros
Lots of different room for advancement
Cons
Parking is expensive. Too light on workplace discipline

great workplace
Outpatient Access Specialist (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYDecember 17, 2018
Great workplace. Everyone speak when walking through halls. Working with patients is the best part besides having good co workers. There isn't really anything hard about the job.

Great place for PhD student
Graduate Student Researcher (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYNovember 15, 2018
Low cost of living, collaborative environment, lots of research support, huge biomedical resources. People tend to work together instead against each other, it's not a very competitive environment. Support from the department itself is minimal however, therefore it's crucial to find a good advisor as a PhD student, as the case in any educational institute.

Productive workplace
HR Representative (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYOctober 15, 2018
Nice place to work, but the pay is poor. Co workers are very nice.
The organization is so large, it is hard to really get to know people.

My work location could be better.

Parking is too expensive, especially given the poor salary.
Pros
friendly
Cons
pay

Excellent organization as a whole
Office Manager (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYSeptember 24, 2018
As the culture moves toward the "de-silo" approach to each position, more staff are able to do more jobs well.
The training opportunities are plentiful, plenty of room for advancement.

Ivy league like private school with outdated morals
Visiting assistant professor (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYSeptember 8, 2018
A great workplace if and only if you are tenure track. If you are a visiting or non-tenure track academic, there is no job security and one does not have a say in anything. Great support staff and wonderful students. Still a white male dominant academic culture
Pros
great conditions to work
Cons
no job security if non-tenure track

Hit the floor-Running!
Registered Nurse III (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYSeptember 7, 2018
A typical day in the Emergency Department would include a patient care assignment of 6 patients to 1 nurse. The goal is to have 4:1 which is an occasional occurrence. If 6:1 you may have a patient care technician for assistance. I learned to adapt quickly to change, how to care for a diverse population, how to provide care to the least ill to most critical including traumas. Management has open door policy and for the most part available to lend a hand throughout each shift. The culture is such to help each other and to support growth for each individual. The hardest part of the job has got to be the high acuity with high census throughout each day. The most enjoyable part of the day is knowing that I made a difference in someones life no matter how small or big that difference is.
Pros
Room for growth
Cons
patient ratios for acuity

University of Rochester Medical Center
RESEARCH COORDINATOR (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYAugust 20, 2018
I loved working at the Medical Center. I felt honored to be part of an intelligent, supportive, friendly environment. I was sad when the grant that supported me was not renewed, but a family medical issue required me to return to CT. I actually worked on line for my team in a related research grant for 2 more years. I miss everyone....
Pros
Supportive, interesting work, great people
Cons
none

Provides exceptional medical treatments
Physician Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYAugust 14, 2018
URMC has top-notch physicians and clinicians, however, culture is typically an issue. Also, new offices and locations are needed to allow for growth but, the organization seems to be concerned with getting big, not getting better.
