    Stay current on evidence based care and take a firm zero tolerance stance with unprofessional physician behaviors.

    I have been working at Susquehanna Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice people up at SSMH. Everyone usually works pretty well together, and personal/career advancement is not only available, but highly encouraged. The pay is also pretty nice.

    Cons

    Charting system (soarian) is absolutely lousy. There is a possible merger with UPMC in the future. Also, it's a very small town, so expect small town mentality.

    Pros

    Offers benefits but they aren't that great.

    Cons

    Horrible Pay....overworked and under paid. They do not care about employees or the pts. It's all about the almighty dollar. Poorly managed company.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees.

    "Thought I had my prayers answered"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Registered Nurse in Williamsport, PA

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Faith-based, patient centered care provider
    Competitive salary
    Benefits and PTO accrual start upon hire
    Department I worked in was M-F first shift, perfect for a working mother
    Cutting-edge technology in place
    Thoughtful, helpful physicians to work with

    Cons

    The nurse managers pick favorites from the start, if you don't "fit in" you can tell immediately and they will do what they can to get you out the door. Policies are only enforced on those said employees. The cost of benefits are absolutely outrageous and are crap, they barely pay for anything. Tuition reimbursement, child care assistance is a joke. They put you on a waiting list for tuition and it is next to nothing and child care assistance is something like $5/week. It costs $160/wk per child for full-time care at the near-by childcare facility! The nurses are intimidated by newcomers who form good relationships with the docs, they let you know it real quick. The gossip and banter is ridiculous. The older nurses think they put their time in, get paid double the new nurses, if not more and do absolutely no work, so you better pray you don't get one as your preceptor... you'll be up poop creek without a paddle.

    Advice to Management

    Enforce policies equally.
    Stop playing favorites.
    The turn-over rate wouldn't be so high if you would actually look at the employee's circumstances on an individualized basis, but then again, I wasn't one of the "favorites" so I didn't matter. Neither did the fact that all my patient surveys came back with excellence, the physicians loved me, they actually fought over who was going to have me on their team. It is what it is. I doubt anything will change, because your "values" are so deeply engrained, that it's not even funny!

    Pros

    Close to everything and good pay compared to other hospitals. There seems to be more than enough startup training for new employees.

    Cons

    There seems to be plenty of training for the job, but not in social etiquette. Gossip is rampant and there are racially biased undercurrents too. Not used to being in a professional setting and hear that Mexicans are good for cleaning houses and having ignorant nicknames for students. This could be reported to the Labor & Industry board in Harrisburg.

    Advice to Management

    Put some hidden listening devices around, get a sense of what's really going on and then cut out the diseased wood.
