    I have been working at Allegheny Health Network full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is average. Raises are not per your work effort, it's just for being on the books - so if you don't like to put forth an effort, apply here.

    Cons

    If you are not a nurse or not salaried - you are treated like lower class. No respect for those who are not nurses.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone is not salaried it should not mean they cannot work from home - especially someone who is very honest about their hours and has the means to do the same work @ home - i.e., hospital issued computer.

    I have been working at Allegheny Health Network full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with the best team I have ever worked with in my career. The staff is the organizations biggest asset and the only reason people continue to work here.

    Cons

    Leadership does not value or care about employees, unless they are on the clinical side (MDs, Nurses, etc.). Leadership is constantly talking about change to improve employee morale and culture at the organization but they never take action. Pay scales are low. Constant turnover, especially at the manager and director levels.


  7. "Horribly managed, short-sighted organization - avoid any non-clinical positions"

    Pros

    Good health insurance and PTO policy.
    Decent pay and 401k contribution.
    A few fantastic employees willing to teach, coach, and mentor younger staff.
    One or two fantastic managers that believe in their employees and projects.

    Cons

    Morale is incredibly low - Constant layoffs (only to rehire several months later) do not help.
    Management is short-sighted, out of touch, and place no value on work ethic, loyalty, or performance.
    A huge wave of recent high level departures is telling of the organizations future outlook.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so quick to layoff 10% of the workforce when it's obvious you'll be rehiring for half of those positions in three future months.
