Loads of uncertainty and unease among the surviving employees

I worked at West Penn Allegheny Health System full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat team atmosphere for the most part across the entire health system

ConsRecent affiliation with Highmark has created an atmosphere of doubt and trust in longevity of employment.
Employee satisfaction is eroding.
New upper management seems to make sweeping changes without a lot of forethought.
Aggressive schedule in place for some impending changes to the electronic environment requires an excessive amount of hours on the job for not a lot of reward or appreciation.

Advice to Senior ManagementStaffing reductions (layoffs) should be done with the input of the direct managers affected. This would allow them to offload non-performers rather than hard working, dedicated employees with years of service.

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