    I have been working at University of Miami

    Pros

    I work with a very passionate staff that understands how their contribution assist with providing a more improved patient experience. At UHealth Connect, the leadership is the best that I have ever worked for. They are open to new ideas, and they encourage and support your professional development. The work life balance is great, and the staff really makes coming to work a treat. The group overall just brings out the best in you.

    Cons

    Communication and documentation of procedures could be better, but we are working towards perfecting this

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    I have been working at University of Miami full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good And It's a good environment depending On department.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth unless you change departments. Also several cases where They have laid off propale that are good employees so not so much value for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are no promotion options unless you change departments. That is not a good approach to keep good employees. Also, when positions are postes sí aleatoria about who you know, not really what your qualifications are in the majority of the cases.
