    I have been working at Main Line Health part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working for a Magnet Hospital has it perks and there is a strong sense of feeling appreciated and being cared about as an employee. Only here PRN on the off tours, I have enjoyed multiple complimentary meals and have even met the Chief Nursing Officer, all things that I have never accomplished at my other job working full time for the past 5 years.

    Cons

    Mainline Health strives for all of their nurses to excel, however; only provides educational opportunities or tuition reimbursement to their full time employees. There are so many changes that occur on a daily basis and clear communication to all disciplines of staff is difficult resulting in many surprises, desirable or not. No raises to PRN staff despite having to complete all the required elements that full time staff do (reviews, etc.).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more perks to PRN staff as raises (have not received a raise in 3 years, etc.).

    I have been working at Main Line Health (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay...not great. Good benefits but very expensive. Tuition reimbursement is a joke. Major decline in past 5-7years.

    Cons

    Haven't had a raise in 9 years. Management is awful and patient safety is not considered, only worried about making money and not the employees. Most of the nurses are looking elsewhere for jobs as the staff are all miserable with main line health. Was a great place to work at one time. Wouldnt recommend this place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and not place making money the top priority. It is the staff who will make or break a business and right now we are angry and frusterated.

    I have been working at Main Line Health

    Pros

    Not a bad place to work. Although the pay is kind of low, the benefits for MLH are great.

    Cons

    Very minimal place to grow it seems. Pay is kind of low, even as a credentialed worker.

    Pros

    Benefits are great, employees are wonderful

    Cons

    Middle management has favorites. They seem to pick and choice who is on the chopping block. They disregard the thoughts of certain of employees. They see want they want to see and close their eyes on things they don't want to see. If sr management looks at the turn over on certain units they should know something is wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and see middle management is doing.

    Pros

    Benefits; Physicians are wonderful. Focus on patient satisfaction.

    Cons

    Poor communication company wide. Middle management and HR need work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that the middle management is communicating to their staff. Human resources staff needs to work on their communication and follow up skills in their dealings with employees.

    Pros

    Nice health benefits, vacation plans, and pension.

    Cons

    1. I rarely see any African American nurses around, maybe they have them all hidden on the night shifts. So, if you are African American, don't expect to be a nurse here. 2. The management in the IS department doesn't seem to care about communication. We rarely hear from our Director, we barely hear from our Manager, and our direct supervisor is hardly at his desk and loves to work remotely from home (he forwards his office calls to his cell phone). It's basically a sad state of events.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that the flow of information is reaching your lower level employees. Also, learn to utilize the skill-sets of your employees. Some of them are doing lower level jobs and their skills are not being utilized correctly.
