    Pros

    Health benefits. Great Neuro Surgeons, most ortho surgeons.

    Cons

    Management may not be as experienced as other places. Making it difficult to cope.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need more experience.

    Former Employee - Mental Health Therapist in Arlington, TX

    I worked at Universal Health Services full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I liked having regular morning meetings with staff so that I knew what was going on each day (even though this might mean finding out that morning that I was going to be doing someone else's job that day because they did't come to work). I think they 'tried' to give some little 'reward incentives' occasionally, but they were very little "rewards"

    Cons

    The pay is very low compared to other companies. The work load was ridiculous....because there were not enough paid staff to get everything done. Most of my coworkers put in overtime hours (unpaid, of course) regularly....simply because there was too much work to be done in each day. "Training" was almost non exsistant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put your employees first ....above your own interest in large profits...and don't treat us like we are disposable.

    Pros

    The overwork atmosphere was okay. I never saw the head of our group the entire of my employment.

    Cons

    There was no formal training or trainers manual for your actual job, just the computer system that is known in the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to get a trainers manual for your new employees and get a trainer for each department.

    Pros

    Great upper management, gets involved in the day to days operations of the organization. Good support from corporate office.

    Cons

    Lower levels are not adequately heard by the upper levels. Upper management need more involvement with staff vs. operation/mechanics of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the counselors, techs , etc. Hear their grievances and act upon it rather than ignoring it.

    Pros

    Great team of Behavioral Health staff trying to make a difference in kids lives. Beautiful new facility. Pay is fair.

    Cons

    Too many changes in administration!! We finally had a great CEO and she was caring, compassionate, visionary, and always available. UHS came in and let her go for no good reason. Best leader I ever worked for in all my years. Inspiring! Now just one leader after another and the regional corporate staff is disrespectful and disruptive and knows very little about what is really going on in Chicago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to the staff that work at the facility before making useless decisions. Have some consistency in facility leaders.

    Pros

    This is a good stable growing company to work at. People are very nice. The company is very informative to the Employees regarding company meetings and news reports. Good Benefits.

    Cons

    This company needs more collaboration between departments. The new building needs security, upgrades, and a Mail room. Management needs to listen to the employees requests more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees requests more.

    Pros

    Hard to find one. I do think I was paid competitively.

    Cons

    Spread you too thin. Lack of respect, especially for women. Uncomfortable recommending referrals due to lack of safety and cleanliness at The Vines Hospital.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some help for making your workplace safer. Make it a place clients will want to return to. A place they can actually get better in. Make it a place where employees aren't so fearful. Where employees can make suggestions and you take them seriously
