    I have been working at Upstate Medical University full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    PEF Union benefits for RNs are the best in the organization. There is work being done to receive Magnet status which is improving the culture of the organization.

    Cons

    It is quite challenging to obtain an internal transfer because it is such a large organization. There is a lot of competition.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to and empower your staff.

      I worked at Upstate Medical University full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      The benefits are good, but its not worth it.

      Cons

      Several employees reported unlawful bias, HR investigated. During investigation severe forms of retaliation from managers ensued that included pulling salary support and not renewing contracts. All employees involved left Upstate.

      Advice to Management

      Know workers rights, treat everyone equally, pay equally, and reduce sexism. Learn what retaliation is and then don't do it.
