    Flex Time in Collections Department

    Constantly changing policies. Change workload to whatever it is they want you doing you never get a chance to complete a project.

    Advice to Management

    Assigning work to people who have never worked the payer before. Some people have a lot of experience with that payer and could be a great benefit to you but you have that person not working what they know best.

    I worked at Allegheny General Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can learn a lot in Vascular Interventional and Neuro Radiology! The doctors that I worked with were great, and so were my coworkers! Beyond that, nothing was good about this place stay away!

    Cons

    They worked us to death, I felt it was an unsafe environment for the patients. One day I worked 20 hours straight and was called back in after I got home to do a stroke procedure extremely unsafe. Management does not care at all! Call was ridiculous! I would never work for AHN or Allegheny General Hospital, again ever! They don't deserve a great employee like me.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees more! Take care of them so they can take care of your patients!
