    Pros

    Daylight working hours with weekends and holidays off in the physician office positions. One night a week open late. Employer uses Electronic Medical Record and uses e-scribe for prescriptions. Coworkers usually work together for the common goal. Physicians are very approachable and appreciate hard work.

    Cons

    Small staff ratio to patient load. High volume of patient contact if you prefer to work away from the public.

    Advice to Management

    Create the benefit packages that are consistent across the board. Better wages for the physician group offices. Better ability to utilize your sick and personal time. Enforce office policy to all employees.

    Poor staffing , high turn over rate , low staff morale

    Advice to Management

    Since you stress patient satisfaction . In order to provide that you must provide proper staffing ! Increases pt satisfaction & staff morale.

    Pros

    pay is decent. Benefits are ok

    Cons

    are expected to stay after your shift to complete pt exams, then leave early another day to compensate. You are reminded how easily you could be replaced. Management treats you as a number and not a human being. Constant " write ups" for simple mistakes. Management has too much time on their hands to nit pick, all while dept. is crushed and employees expected to stay late while management leaves for the day.

    Advice to Management

    Quick to have the non caring attitude and like to remind people that they can be replaced, but yet come to depts to teach us ways to better serve the pt. for a higher pt. satisfaction resulting in a BONUS FOR YOU. Please learn the simple concept of give and take. Unhappy, uncared for employees don't care to go out of their way for you!

    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 Management

    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.

  8. Management is a mess

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.
