    Pros

    You get good benefits. Raise every year. If you work at a dr office full time, holidays are a paid day off.

    Cons

    Be prepared for things to change all the time.. Even rules. Watch what you tell other employees. Don't gossip, and leave personal life outside of work. You are replaceable at anytime.

    Advice to Management

    Icknowloging employees when they do something positive or right instead of always pointing out the negative. This will boast more employees self esteem which will portray better work ethics. Show more sympathy towards your employees when they face a traumatic event in there life, we do practice healthcare and are told to be sympathetic towards our patients. This is very hypocritical and we should be given at least 5 sick days a year, outside of our pto. Employees do get sick from talking care of other sick patients and also majority of the employees have kids, which did get sick also. Mangers and supervisors should treat all employees equal, which is not always the case.

    Pros

    Pay is fair, career advancement and educational opportunities

    Cons

    Benefits are awful for being hospital based and fairly expensive

    Advice to Management

    Not in touch with reality, every initiative is for show. There is no appreciation for bedside caregivers.

    Pros

    decent benefits, technology is up-to-date

    Cons

    company does not value employees- you are just a number on their financial budget no matter how hard you work to the top. when finances get tight, experienced RN's are the first to go to save money

    Advice to Management

    listen to your employees and find out when they are not happy, you will lose experienced talent by not valuing excellent employees

    Pros

    fun place, hospitals have a feel good environment

    Cons

    micromanaged, new leadership thinks you grow by cutting.

    Advice to Management

    While managing costs is important, so is managing employee morale. People talk, people will leave if they feel they are being used.

    Pros

    Close to home. Community involvement. Pay is satisfactory for the community size.

    Cons

    Little regard for employee satisfaction. More committed to fiscal responsibility then patient safety. Demands for social disconnect between management and staff. Uses shared governance as a way to implement what management wants, not what the staff needs.

    Pros

    This healthsystem really cares about the health and well being of the community and about its employees. Senior leadership is visionary and has made sure Reading Health System can succeed and continue to provide very high quality care to our families and our community.

    Cons

    Some employees may not understand that we have to change to be ready for the future. RHS leadership is doing a great job in educating its leadership team and our employees about what is happening in healthcare.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open and to educate the employees about your vision and our successes.
