    I have been working at Allegheny General Hospital part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great location, salary, parking (on site and off), highmark making it better

    Cons

    Nursing union!! Contributes to struggle for managers to make staff accountable....Don't want to deal w "grievances". Pay a lot of dues.....no worth. Nursing is no place for a union, especially a non nursing/non professional union

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dissolve that union!
    Uniforms! (Not white)

    Pros

    Other doctors share your struggle

    Cons

    Poorly run financially, management reacts rather making calculated moves. No physician/ employee loyalty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are still some good doctors and nurses there. Take care of them, and they'll take care of you. You let a lot of good doctors go in the past years. It's a mistake that you're still paying for. It is more productive to evaluate and mentor young doctors rather than continuously try to replace them in hopes that the next batch will better serve your needs. Doctors don't grow on trees.

    Transparency. Enough said.

     You'll never be UPMC. Stop trying, it's foolish.

    I have been working at Allegheny General Hospital full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Gain experience because of the level one trauma status, flexibility of shifts and scheduling

    Cons

    Shuttle you to and from work, health benefits have declined over the past few years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make employees feel valued for their dedication, commitment, and service to the organization instead of feeling like they're replaceable.
