    I worked at Universal Health Services

    Pros

    Lots of positive feedback from the DNS. She really goes to bat for all nurses! Her attitude gives us something to aspire toward!

    Cons

    Staffing sucks! Hire more experienced nurses! Pay competitive salaries and give good incentives to retain nurses! Hire on bonus???? Why not? Retain those hired with hire on bonuses for a couple years at least.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of all

    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 Management

    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.

    PTO is the only good thing

    Cons

    To many 2 count... I would rather fall on a rusty butcher knife than go to work for UHS

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat people...and you wonder why there is such a high turn over... This company basically sucks....

    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 Management

    It's ok to promote from within.

    Excellent treatment of non-clinical staff in Las Vegas Facilities.
