    I worked at Universal Health Services

    Pros

    Not much. My manager was a decent person but it went as far as following what the terrible CEOS said, which was profit before care

    Cons

    No support from management.
    Unsafe patient assignments.
    High turnover (like 1 employee per month).
    Disrespectful management.
    Insulting pay (19/hr for RN-Bsn)
    Unrealistic workload (30 acute care psych patients to 1 nurse, preparing and passing medications to all, pulling mess out of a bin and having to label envelopes and prepare and pass for 30 while taking admissions, covering breaks, discharges, taking non-stop faxes from assessment, drawing blood, assessment, ect).
    Unprofessional management and staff with loads of drama.
    Money over quality of care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can't believe what they are allowed to operate and treat people. It is disgusting what they do to people's lives and careers.

    I worked at Universal Health Services full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    IT is given the latest and greatest tools. Training and knowledge transfer within the team is paramount. The management staff is always available for questions, concerns or suggestions. Job security. Benefits are ok. They embrace the latest technologies. Travel to remote locations within the US. Large IT staff if you include all of the facility staff.

    Cons

    Heavy workload and somewhat understaffed at corp.
    Room for advancement.
    Salary level below baseline for position, but I knew this going in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's ok to promote from within.

    -Hospital management should be more involved with daily issues that staff face

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Hire people who really know the industry
    - More newsletters - don't publish enough
    - Recruit more doctors - never seem to do a good job getting doctors - always excuses
    - Some of the internal managers lie about what is happening and when corporate comes in don't always get the real truth

    I have been working at Universal Health Services

    Pros

    This is a well-run company that is conservative in its management style. The company does not adopt the fad-of-the-week, like many businesses do, but has maintained its focus during up and down business cycles. There are plenty of opportunities for growth within the company for people who seek out opportunities.

    Cons

    Not as flexible with work schedules as other companies, does not allow working from home, dress code is not casual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication from senior management to employees has improved in recent months but could still use improvement. More casual dress code would be appreciated.
