    I have been working at Reading Health System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are many opportunities to learn and grow professionally and personally. Internal promotion and advancement is highly promoted. A competitive benefits package is offered including items such as educational assistance, a generous paid leave program, paid holidays, excellent health insurance, and a matching 403 B plan. The organization does many wonderful things for their employees, patients, and the community. There are many perks as an employee including holiday events, monthly trips, discounted meals and gift shop purchases, free parking, and daycare services.

    Cons

    The organization is heading in the right direction, but still has a long way to go. There have been many challenges faced as numerous changes have been implemented throughout the organization. Everyone needs to pull together to work as a team to embrace the changes, be adaptable and flexible, and move forward in a positive manner. There is a lot of potential for the road ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership needs to continue to work with employee's to become even stronger. Increased communication organization-wide to allow for continuous growth and improvement.

    Pros

    The pay was good.

    Cons

    Upper management who give lip service. Lots of Lies in this organization. High Drama everywhere! They are still escorting the best of the best to the door and saying GOODBYE... Not sure when they will wake up and realize that YOU need experienced people to stay ... NOT LEAVE... something else that has been bothering me... The HR department is just plain awful there... no caring ..no compassionate or kind people in this department.. just call the HR department on the phone.. and listen to how they speak to you or how they talk to you... and quite honestly.. its everyone in HR. They speak to the employees as if they are worthless... its a shame. Its a hospital... listen to your nurses people!! Without nurses it wouldn't be a hospital!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    why let good people go? encourage retention... keep the experienced nurses there please!!!!
    Oh... and when you are supposed to be sitting in a meeting.. maybe you could put your phones and tablets away and listen to what is being said.. that might help..
