Disapproves of CEO

Pros

-Good leadership training programs, if you are made aware of them and given the option to participate.
-Good benefits if you are in the correct states to access them.

Cons

-Extremely poor benefits if you are not in a state with a UHS hospital
-Upper management micro-manages from across the country
-Upper management will not take responsibility in writing for questionable decisions - passes the blame to the facility level

Advice to Management

Learn to trust your facilities. There is no point in having "managing/director" level postiions at facilities if regionals are going to make all the decisions but not take any of the responsibility for those decisions.
