I have been working at Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network (More than 3 years)

Pros

LVHHN was a great place to work from '01 to '06 - very much a family environment that promoted well from within. Loved working there. Moved on for personal reasons.

Cons

Hard to say any cons since it has been a while since I worked there, but it might be the oncall support that is needed at times.

    I have been working at Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network full-time

    Pros

    The culture is the biggest perk. People are genuinely happy and like what they do. Lots of opportunity for development and advancement. Good for education and clinical experience. I referred family and friends there, quality is the best I know.

    Cons

    The large size, makes for a good amount of walking in a day and parking can sometimes be far

    I worked at Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Longevity pays in benefits earned. Vacation, etc are pretty unbeatable once you hit the 5 year mark. The hospital really has excellent clinicians and top-notch facilities. Potential for advancement if you are patient.

    Cons

    Tone deaf management. Numerous non-producing positions in the network. Departments that don't treat patients have several layers of managers, directors, coordinators, etc. Could easily eliminate 10% of positions and have no adverse effect on patient care.
    Lots of bureaucracy.
    Competing priorities of the network, physicians and the patient can keep you guessing who you work for at times.
    There are several people in leadership roles that are thing for no other reason than the fact they have worked there 20+ years.
    They are probably the best in their region and very much act like it. Look, it's pretty typical of any hospital. I put this out there so you don't get hit sideways when the honeymoon phase of your employment is over. If you want a pretty stable place to work with decent pay and great benefits- go ahead.
    If you are can't tolerate arrogance and nepotism, you should keep looking.

    Advice to Management

    Live your organizational values, don't just recite them. Develop some personal courage to stand by your convictions. Consider pruning management down to the coordinator level.
