I worked at Universal Health Services full-time (More than a year)

Pros

There is lots of potential for overtime. Raises are predictable and consistent (for the most part), if low, however expect those who are being hired in to make more than you, even if you have been with the company for years.

Cons

The environment is toxic. You will suffer physical and mental abuse. Taking time off is nearly impossible if you are good at your job. If you excel you will be promised promotion and never given a raise until you finally quit. They remain understaffed on some of the most challenging shifts due to their insanely high turnaround. This results in situations that result in no one getting a break for 16 hour shifts. They are neither respectful nor appreciative of their employee's and the CEO and upper management are verbally abusive and use the individuals who work the hardest for them. The turnaround is caused by both this and constant firings when inevitable situations arise with residents due to tired staff and short staffed units. There is no job security here even though they cannot manage to keep people. I worked here for a year out of my two years here waiting on the promise of an interview and saw several others (particularly men) with less experience and more overall complaints promoted within weeks- while I was still holding a supervisory position. They acknowledge the fact that the environment is unbearable by attempting to make you sign a 'no lawsuit' agreement.

Advice to Management

Consider showing more appreciation for your employees. Show respect for those under you. Do not cut the allowable amount of floor staff for the sake of profit. Focus on safety and not profit.

    Pros

    don't have any pros to give about this company

    Cons

    They lie about your performance. They buy the company and rid of the longer term excellent employees with lies so they leave without unemployment and hire new college graduates for pennies. They will ruin your long term career!! Beware

    Advice to Management

    Apply what you preach. The culture of this company is the worst!
