    I have been working at Altoona Regional Health System part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Long term employer in a difficult economy. Good benefits and decent saleries. Multiple shifts that work with your family life.

    Cons

    Being a good worker doesn't lead to better salaries or better jobs. Being a union facility, there are employees that need to be reprimanded or dismissed but are protected by the unions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees before making desicions that effect them. We recently had a lot of construction and there are areas that are not user freindly. If someone would have asked the people using the areas things might be easier to work with.

    I worked at Altoona Regional Health System part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good health benefits, PTO. Co workers are very helpful however, it depends on which unit you are in. Salary raise every year.

    Cons

    Poor staffing. No consideration with patient's equity. I work in a Palliative/Medical Oncology Unit with no CNA or just 1. No help given. Management turns a blind eye to existing issues. Employees are just numbers, replaceable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to your employees especially the nurses. They are the backbone of the business.

    I have been working at Altoona Regional Health System

    Pros

    Pay is fair for the area
    Co-Workers are fantastic on some floors

    Cons

    Management on some floors can act as bullies
    Little recognition for hard work
    Frequent nit-picking
    VERY poor, frequently unsafe staffing
    Low patient satisfaction rates due to poor staffing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This hospital has several issues but the biggest one is staffing. An RN taking up to 8 acutely ill patients alone with no aid or helper is ridiculous and unsafe... so don't ask your staff why your floor's satisfaction rating is down.
