I worked at Universal Health Services full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

I'd like to be able to say some nice things about this company, after all I invested a significant portion of my life here. They have a great benefits program and have done a great job of controlling costs to employees.

Cons

The Kansas City Campus (Two Rivers Psychiatric Hospital) has been in a state of turmoil for over four years and the drama continues. There have been 9 new CEOs of this facility in the last four years. The facility has battled to remain in compliance with State and Federal Regulations, but always seems to fall short. CMS has issued 90-day notices on several occasions, which would end Medicare Fudning and effectively shut down the facility. Several key senior management positions have turned over, leaving a sophomore class of inexperienced leaders.

Advice to Management

Take a hard look at this facility--do you even want to be in this market? Get an electronic medical record system in place. Learn to treat employees like the professionals you'd like them to be. Suggest that the CEO leave his office on occasion and get out among staff.

    I worked at Universal Health Services full-time

    Pros

    Loved the people there. They become your family. Hated to leave but I needed more money.

    Cons

    Make you feel like you're lucky to be there. Not that they are lucky to have you.

    Pros

    The company is stable and offers opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    The shifts are entirely too long, creating the opportunity for medical errors.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff and go to 8 and/or 10 hour shifts.
