    Awesome benefits and current CEO seems reasonable and cares about employees. Truly patient centered.

    Cons

    Job security. Frequent small lay offs have staff on edge.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on high performing employees. Sometimes they are overlooked and end up leaving the network. Also the communication cascade is working, staff is more informed and updated than with previous leadership.

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

    Pros

    Working in a specialty office allows me to be out of the office by 5:30 and off on the holidays. I started in a big office and was able to move to a smaller location which is a nice office. The manager I have and co-workers work well together.

    Cons

    Being part of a large organization the communication between our doctors, mangers and staff is weak. Sometimes the employees know things before the provider's. There is a lot of turn around with our providers and right now. They are pushing them to see to many patients and they b urn out easy.

    Advice to Management

    Our doctors need more time with our patients. Rather than focus on expanding, take care of the locations you already have. Staff them with more providers and the employees to support the patient load. A lot of the locations we have already aren't staffed appropriately for the space they have.
