    Pros

    Exposure to multiple units and care settings.

    Cons

    No leadership from management. Pulled frequently to other units without any orientation. Come in on your day off and get pulled to another floor. Parking is a joke. Raises are far and few between. Benefits are poor.

    Days go fast. Pay is ok. Benefits ok. People ok

    Pros

    Great coworkers, some flexibility with schedule and reasonable vacation and personal time.

    Cons

    Worked here previously when it was WPAHS, however in a completely different department. I figured if Highmark was instilling millions of dollars into this organization, they would cut the fat (aka, eliminate poor manamgment and leadership); however, I was incorrect. I actually think it was worse than when I worked there years ago. Overall, endless hours, no bonus, clueless directors, arbitrary rules and a COMPLETE lack of appreciation for employees. Overall, you will be treated very, very poorly and work many, many unpaid hours.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciation and kindness go a long way, especially for employees who prove their dedicated and worth daily and consistently preform.

    Pros

    Great hours for corporate staff.
    Minimal supervision
    Willingness to invest in remodeling and upgrading facilities.
    Well educated and compassionate medical staff.

    Cons

    Taking away personal time because old timers hoard their time.
    Lack of communication with staff.
    Poor planning.
    Lack of raises, too many people start very low on the pay scales.
    No respect given for non-clinical degrees

    Advice to Management

    Make sure things that are initiated are followed through on. Just because a plan is created it does not mean it is being followed up on. I hear far too many if's, should's and supposed to's. Things sounded very promising but too much turn over with upper management causes plans that were initiated to be reevaluated every time new leaders are brought in.

    Pros

    I liked the people I worked with and the diversity of all of the employees

    Cons

    The upper management was divided with their vision and decision making. Due to the merger of Highmark and the hospitals the road ahead was very blurry. They also were laying off a lot of long time employees

    Advice to Management

    The upper management was un interested in caring for their loyal employees. This miss trust is observed by the younger employees and chases them out the door, Establish better relationships with the experienced employees and treat them with more respect.

    Pros

    Little down staffing, free parking

    Cons

    Benefits seem lacking, feel unappreciated. Often understaffed. Occasional lunches we would, likely benefit from a union. Things only seem to change in the direction of less staff more responsibility. No real concern for employee well being, and with pts leaving before being seen or discharged probably doesn't save the hospital money. It was much better before highmark and upmc east
