      I have been working at Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Tuition reimbursement 401K free gym memberships $500 worth of wellness incentives per year adequate PTO and sick time. Leave increases as your sonority with the company increases. Plenty of opportunity to grow within the company.

      The only downside of the benefits is the pharmacy portion of health benefits. It's only acceptable at the hospital pharmacies which is inconvenient and the staff is not always friendly at those pharmacies.

      I worked at Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network full-time

      Pros

      Loved the flex time start, you can choose to start the work day anywhere between 6 and 9 am.

      Cons

      Work from home was offered for qualifying employees and then was completely taken away from everyone even though the individuals who were working from home always had high productivity.

      Advice to Management

      The flex time start hours are great but do not take perks (like working from home) away from hard working employees for no reason.
