    Pros

    Compensation, Benefits, I don't have anymore positive things to say about Bryn Mawr Hospital. If you are lucky enough to get hired, the money and benefits are good.

    Cons

    I am very happy to be moving on to organizations that value my skills, knowledge, and experience. I wish the organization the best with accomplishing it's mission.

    Advice to Management

    Promote educated people. Don't base promotions on gender, personal relationships, or race. Stop discriminating against males also. It's going to bite you in the future. You will see.

    apply some consistency for each employee whether full time/day shift or part time. day shifted ten get away with leaving their work for the night shift

    Pros

    I retired in 2015 after almost 40 to the day years of service at Paoli Hospital. For those seeking positions and a career in the security department I would recommend it. It was a "never a dull moment" type atmosphere.. The campus , a Level 2 Trauma Center , is one of the best in the nation in my opinion. Your daily routine is composed of random foot and mobile patrol of the campus , securing the helipad landing zone for incoming helicopters and assisting the flight crew down into the trauma bays with patients. Add that to the duties of securing sensitive areas , responding to emergency situations , monitoring the CCTV and alarms in the state of the art Dispatch Center just to name a few. The staff to work with are great along with a great security director. Pay and benefits are excellent and may I mention the pension is pretty good. Remember, if hired you may the first impression a visitor, staff or patient comes away with. There is plenty of interaction with public.Remember you are also a public relations officer in the role of security officer at Paoli Hospital. Do great job and good luck !

    Cons

    Weekend coverage may be an issue for some but that is the nature of working in healthcare. But you will get used to it and it is nice to have days off during the week.

    Advice to Management

    Right people in the right position = success
