Team member (Former Employee) – Erie, PA – November 15, 2018
I was a trauma nurse at UPMC in the operating room. My typical day consisted of interviewing my patients, setting up the operating room, and collaborating with my team members. I learned a great deal at my job and absolutely loved it! Management was okay at the time I was there. The workplace culture is fun at times however, is tense and stressful at other times when a trauma comes in. However, the team members all got along and worked together well as a team to give quality of care to our patients. The hardest part of the job was multitasking when I had two surgeons in room at same time doing a big case. However, I was able to do it effectively and efficiently. The most enjoyable part was doing something I absolutely loved and having teammates as my work family.
LPN (Former Employee) – Jamestown, NY – November 14, 2018
If you want to work in an environment that the RN's are allowed to bully you on a daily basis and stay working there here is the place to be. Being told "that your not a real nurse." Charge nurses treating staff poorly in front of coworkers and patients. Also poor patient care. Comments like "they should've tried harder" when an attempted suicide was brought in. I wouldn't recommend this job to my worst enemy.UPMC should be ashamed to have these people representing their hospital.

Registered Nurse/Case Manager (Former Employee) – West Mifflin, PA – November 11, 2018
All full time home care is little work life balance. up 5-6 am working, till 4-6pm then charting till 9-11pm. Learned alot about myself and how the best way is to use resources available. my direst manager who was middle management was amazing. upper management not so much. hardest part was keeping up with all the charting. Other then the verylong days i loved everything about my job.
Director of Surgical Services (Former Employee) – Seneca, PA – November 8, 2018
UPMC acquired our two community hospitals, merging services and eventually building a new facility to consolidate services in a central location. This allowed for implementation of the most current technologies available at the time. Unfortunately, one result of this corporate culture was the elimination of many jobs held by long-term employees of the community facilities. The position of Director of Surgical Services was eliminated and I was terminated during the corporate restructuring.
