RN (Current Employee) – Morgantown, WV – July 17, 2018
Overall WVU Medicine is a great place to work with many opportunities to improve nursing skill and growing as a nurse. The floor that I currently work on has such great teamwork and management. It is truly a wonderful place to be.
The management is very unprofessional. The staff does the job of the program coordinator because she was given a job she can't perform. She is very degrading if you ask questions or make suggestions. You are expected to perform 2 or more jobs with no raise or appreciation. Compensation is low and the insurance is expensive.
I thoroughly enjoy working for this company. The only thing is where I am in the company there is no where else to advance to, so in order to advance tounhabe to move to another position in the company.
Medical Staff Coordinator (Former Employee) – Morgantown, WV – July 10, 2018
To advance there you better know someone or have an "in" as they say. Management is horrible, they don't know what they are doing. They promote the people who make mistakes and terminate the employees who work hard and are good at their job. Most managers don't even know what or how to do the job of the people they are in charge over. There are some employees that are making more than degreed employees
Billing/Coding Supervisor, Dep. of Orthopaedics (Former Employee) – Morgantown, WV – July 1, 2018
It was a pleasure working at WVU. I worked with some of the greatest people who were willing to teach me all that I was willing to learn. In the medical billing/coding field, onsite training is a must.
Support Associate (Former Employee) – Morgantown, WV – July 1, 2018
When you clock in, you are assigned a phone and you use a pager. You call the system for job assignments. Assignments will appear on your pager. During assignments, you have to call the system for everything or you will be hounded by the dispatcher or management. Take too long on a job, you will get hounded for that as well. If you do not like working on your feet, this is not the job for you as you will walk 10 to 15 miles each shift. Parking is a joke as they want employees parking at the off-site locations. Work mid-shift? Good luck finding a place to park. Game days are a nightmare as employees are not permitted to park at the hospital and no shuttles run on game days or weekends. Communication is lacking and makes employees vulnerable to contracting illnesses. The co-workers are a good group to work with, but management needs some serious overhaul. The doctors are not aware of surroundings as they always stand in your way and will not move when trying to do your job.
Insurance Specialist (Current Employee) – Work from home – June 19, 2018
I love my job and find it challenging and I continue to take on new projects. The insurance industry is every changing so keeps the job interesting and never boring. I am able to work from home which is a big plus.
As a patient, I love WVU Medicine because they always provide exceptional care. As a former employee, I can say that I am happier now that I no longer work there. Employees are offered a multitude of benefits, such as Paid Time Off, Health Insurance, Retirement, Discounts, annual raises, and an annual bonus. That comes at a cost though. You are constantly working in a fast-paced, stressful environment. The patient is ALWAYS right, the doctors are catered to, and the cost of their health insurance has increased significantly. I (mostly) enjoyed the people I worked with and my supervisors, but I was also always stressed out to the max hoping I didn't do or say something wrong. Also, most new employees have to park off-site, meaning you park a few miles away and have to ride a shuttle to work. Be prepared to come to work extra early. If you are a regular, hourly employee, then you get a 30 minute lunch. On another note, WVU Medicine is ever-growing. They NEED their employees, so unless you are a frequent rule-breaker, then you should always have a job with them.
WVU Medicine provides a multitude of professional and clinical experiences in an unique rural setting. The organization is a complex University Medical Center providing a wide range of clinical services both inpatient, outpatient and rural outreach. It is supported by multiple disciplines of the WVU Medical School. Technology is supported and I find it more advanced than most medical centers across the nation.
WVU MEDICINE internship (Former Employee) – Morgantown, WV – May 15, 2018
This internship helped me gain the opportunity to build strong client relationships and communication skills . I was able to effectively use time management skills to excel in a full course load of classes and a collegiate sport. Through WVU cardiac rehab i was given the ability to work and connect with all age groups, and help them achieve goals to improve their health and lifestyle.
Thick skin go for it, otherwise chose another department. They want to learn but belittle you if you make a mistake. Decided that I would not continue with this department and most likely any department in the medical arena.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Morgantown, WV – April 29, 2018
Changes in management and failure to properly approve new hires left me doing the job of 3 people. They cooperated with my disability requests and Unum paid for 3 leaves of absences, but all those absences were a direct result of the stress from doing too much work. Upper management was not supportive. I was happy when I started and miserable when I left.
Perioperative Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Morgantown, WV – April 23, 2018
I loved the job and getting to work closely with doctors/nurses in the Operating Room. The job was fast paced. Most coworkers were friendly and great people but there was a ton of drama which made the work environment unfavorable.
CLINICAL ASSOCIATE WVU MEDICINE (Current Employee) – Morgantown, WV – April 18, 2018
With the things you have to put up with in my position, it's not worth the money. Very stressful position. Management will listen to complaints but that's all thats done. They listen. Action is never taken and our stresses are no concern to them.
