Pros

The industry is booming even as the economy is not. There's always a certain level of job security when the demand for the type of healthcare services you provide is only going to continue to grow.

Cons

Divisional and Corporate department heads come in to make changes even if the current system you are using is successful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

See an employee as a face with a skill set, not an FTE. If you are going to make a departmental cut, do so to an individual based on work performance, not on how long someone has been employed. Lay-off dead weight that's been employed for 5 years, not a bright, innovative, and talented employee just because they are inside their 90 day period.

    I worked at Universal Health Services full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It stayed on top of the latest technology within reason. Employees are encouraged to improve processes by utilizing technology and reducing overall cost to the company and the environment.

    From an organization perspective I feel UHS is an excellent company with good financials. If you are part of upper management it is very lucrative.

    Cons

    IS Department morale is low overall. Management is never content with the work that is performed by the teams. Many of us put between 50 and 60 hours on average a week and get little or no merit increase at the end of the year. We are told telecommuting is not allowed, so everyone has to come in the office for 40 hours. However, just about everyone in IT/IS work from home to keep up with the work load past the 40 hours. We are constantly reminded that we are lucky to have a job!

    The department/company wasn't always this way. . . Lot has changed in the last 5 years!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management has no clue what goes on in the department at least in IT/IS from my experience. Perhaps, they should have conversations with the employees and not just the Directors and VPs.

    Pros

    I'd like to be able to say some nice things about this company, after all I invested a significant portion of my life here. They have a great benefits program and have done a great job of controlling costs to employees.

    Cons

    The Kansas City Campus (Two Rivers Psychiatric Hospital) has been in a state of turmoil for over four years and the drama continues. There have been 9 new CEOs of this facility in the last four years. The facility has battled to remain in compliance with State and Federal Regulations, but always seems to fall short. CMS has issued 90-day notices on several occasions, which would end Medicare Fudning and effectively shut down the facility. Several key senior management positions have turned over, leaving a sophomore class of inexperienced leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at this facility--do you even want to be in this market? Get an electronic medical record system in place. Learn to treat employees like the professionals you'd like them to be. Suggest that the CEO leave his office on occasion and get out among staff.
