    May 20, 2020Director, Client Services

    We are so happy to hear that you value your colleagues and patients! We feel so lucky to have employees who work as a team to provide great care to the people within the communities we serve. However, we are very concerned to hear that you do not feel valued and that you do not have work life balance. We are committed to ensuring that staff feel valued and have the time they need and want to care not only for their family but themselves. We strongly encourage you to talk with your manager and or an HR Business partner to share your concerns so they can be addressed. Thanks for all you do to care for members of our community.

    I have been working at Reading Hospital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are decent, they need to be to attract talent

    Cons

    Operating in the past. Upper management is so busy looking at the future, they are ignoring the present. Middle management is so focused on the past and what they have accomplished, they are not preparing for the future. Everything is reactionary. If you like high school, you will love it here. Advancement is based on your friendships and your managers opinion, not on your abilities or accomplishments. Stand up to make a change against the wrong person and you ware gone. Too many bullies pushing their view on others when the bullies truly do not know what they are doing. Hollywood could learn something about drama from this place. Very few people here understand the difference between a small community hospital and being a regional health system, and management does not want to know the difference.
