Have witnessed many changes

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

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

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

ConsNursing 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 Senior ManagementDissolve that union!
Uniforms! (Not white)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Bad administration, financial instability

Physician (Former Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

I worked at Allegheny General Hospital full-time for more than 5 years

ProsOther doctors share your struggle

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

Advice to Senior ManagementThere 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

It's like riding a roller coaster; there are ups and downs, fast paced, and an adrenaline rush.
