Lead Technician/Time keeper Payroll (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – September 2, 2018
UPMC was a very good employer for me. The culture there was all about taking care of patients. My job there often was a very educational experience for me. At the end of the day, I would work for them again. Highly recommend to anyone.
Team Leader (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – July 27, 2018
Pay and benefits good. Constantly short handed. Employees spend a lot of time slacking. Poor management. Terrible culture. Nurses are flat out mean. HR is useless and management doesn't care. Pay is good but you are likely to work like two or three people so it isn't worth it.
Culture. Too much work. Slacking employees. Weak management and weaker HR.

UPMC Pinnacle is a fun place to work with good people. The culture is far better and more cooperative than other places I have seen. UPMC Pinnacle pays far less than most similar organizations for the same work.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – July 17, 2018
When I worked here, the job and the people were both great. Great atmosphere, relaxed environment. Daily situations will occur and cause some stress here and there but all in all, this was a great place to work. The only thing that was an issue for me was the commute.
Talent Acquisition and Management is Inexperienced and Unskilled
HR Generalist (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – July 3, 2018
Management is extremely poor in Human Resources, specifically on the “talent acquisition” team at Harrisburg. Promotions were handed to people that were not qualified to do a job when other qualified candidates were overlooked. Promotions are solely based on politics and not skill. Poor morale among the team. Extremely overwhelming and overworked. The same old stale management style is continuously passed down. They need new and fresh management on the team. Preferably people that haven’t been employed by Pinnacle their whole entire lives. How can a talent acquisition team successfully attract new employees to a company that allows “management” to take advantage of their employees the way they do? Management is indecisive and they are not assertive. Very unfair, political and they don’t even follow all the rules and practice what they preach.....

If you live in the Pittsburgh area and love healthcare, UPMC is the place for you. They're fantastic and work well with all different cultures and people. UPMC lives their mission statement and make sure that employees know of its importance. UPMC is amazing!
Activities Assistant (Former Employee) – Seneca Place Verona, Pa – June 27, 2018
My last position only lasted a few months but I really enjoyed seeing our patients and listening to their story. During this time I would always ask if there was anything I could do to make their ER visit easier. This courtesy was extended to family as well because of the nature their visit. My reason for leaving was the 12 hour shifts. I was certain that I could handle the shift but quickly realized that this was not a good fit. As far as workplace culture there is a different atmosphere when you add an older customer relation person to a staff of younger unexperienced staff. The blending was left for the senior in age because the younger are not aware yet of what true customer service means. Getting past the language barrier is definitely a challenge but maturity moved past this issue.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – June 17, 2018
A typical work day was very busy with little time for lunch. I learned how to manage my time and my work assignments along with dealing with difficult patients and caring for very ill patients.. Every day was a learning experience with the frailty of life. Work culture was often pressured with number of nurses per patient ratio; lots of stress. The stress of the job was the hardest part. The most enjoyable was being able to care for a patient and see them get well and go home.
The people I worked with worked as a team always working together.
