    I have been working at Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues are very professional and caring. Magnet facility, Nursing is valued and leads many valuable initiatives. Supportive environment for learning and gaining new skills

    Cons

    Salaries can lag at times; Medical insurance is ok. Facility is overwhelmed with demand, delays in service frustrating for patients and staff.

    Advice to Management

    Make all unit practices consistent and supportive; some units with high turnover. The turnover drains all other units.

    Pros

    18 dollars and hour plus 10% shift diff. Treated well by medical staff. Much needed profession in such a large hospital, like a small city.

    Cons

    Work for 12 hrs straight not much down time More like hospital police then security.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the patrol officers on the floor

    Pros

    You get to work with a lot of really smart and hard working people that go above and beyond to help their community. Good pay and benefits - not top of the market but very competitive in this area. I think one of the best things about working here is the collaboration between the different groups in the hospital.

    Cons

    Starting to get a little top heavy with all of the senior level colleagues (VP and above) being added or promoted. Might not look that great to your front line staff.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the caring work that you do and don't forget about all of the people below you that make the machine run every day.
