    Easy going people, very friendly.

    Hire good quality people and bring in a consultant to teach you how to run a business.

    Pros

    Competitive Salary, Good union for Nursing, Flexible hours depending on your position.

    Cons

    Heritage Valley is not for anyone looking for a long term career. The organization is quick to outsource non-clinical departments with individuals paid at a low salary. Senior employees that make a decent salary will find them self replaced or suggested to take a early retirement. Heritage Valley has no loyalty to its employees. There is a disconnect with management and the CEO. The CEO does not seem to know what is going on in the organization and has no interest in finding out. The CEO is being told what he wants to hear, but not what is actually happening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The employees need management staff that they can respect. There are a few managers that don't receive any respect from there staff because they never earned it.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    This organization is not interested in long term employees. They are quick to let employees go that have many years service and make a decent wage.. Don't expect to retire from here. Management is not interested in employee concerns. It is pointless to go to the Human Resources. They can't or won't do much to resolve any issues. Heritage Valley Health System is know to lay off employees in small numbers a few times a year, so that they do not get bad press.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees concerns and try to make a work environment where employees enjoy going to work.

    I worked at Heritage Valley Health full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay was ok but that was it!!!

    Cons

    Worked at Sewickley Campus no room for advancement! Cared about Beaver don't care about employees, always understaffed and expected to work more for less pay. Human Resources is a JOKE!!!!! Norm Mitry is also a Joke unless your his buddy, you could never go to management about anything. I would never go to that hospital after working there and seeing and hearing what the physicians said about the patients....they act like a bunch of 10 year olds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees.. respect them more. QUIT OUTSOURCING

    Pros

    One of the best paying hospitals in the local area. We are union and our union reps fight hard to keep our hospital one of the best ones to work at.

    Cons

    A lot of downsizing. Management putting "pay for performance" into play. Just not possible to make everyone happy.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling allows for a great work/life balance

    Cons

    Bill themselves as the premier employer in the industry, compensation based upon the industry average. Very poor work environment, anyone who stands up to the workplace bullies is disciplined by managment/HR. Mediocre performance is not only acceptable, it is rewarded. Make sure you completely understand the pay scale BEFORE accepting a position with Heritage Valley.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop allowing the lunatics to run the asylum, It's time for you to step up and actually MANAGE!

    I have been working at Heritage Valley Health full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits (for now), uniform allowance, cheap/free parking, self scheduling, family like atmosphere. 403b matching after a year.

    Cons

    One hospital is union, the other is not. The one without has little to no work rules.

    Chronic under staffing, chronic being pulled to other units.

    Nepotism that I've never seen before. Many mom/daughter/sister/MIL working on the same unit/same shifts. Favoritism due to the nepotism and small family like atmosphere.

    Little to no career advancement at the RN level, limited continuing education.

    Self scheduling that is at the mangers discretion. Self scheduling that has limited flexibility due to chronic under-staffing.

    Must work every other weekend regardless of F/T or P/T. Poor holiday scheduling due to chronic under-staffing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They know they have issues, they know they have significant financial issues. They are well aware of staffing issues.

    Think ahead, the core aging population that fills the beds are not going to be around for many years.

    Get competitive and that means hire talent, do not promote from the current company gene pool.
