    I worked at Universal Health Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Excellent shift differentials
    Generous PTO
    Staff can be like family

    Cons

    Administration sucks
    Schedules are not flexible
    A lot of favoritism amongst managers and staff
    Little to NO opportunity for advancement
    Very RN centric company even though others works just as hard.
    No patient to staff ratios.
    Underpaid for the amount of work and personal risk to your safety you have to take working there.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the extreme nepotism in your facilities. Learn to show your employees you appreciate them.

    Pros

    Wonderful interview and professionally handled.

    Cons

    Was told they would call and let me know if I got the job. Never received any communication whatsoever. Extremely disappointed. I expected much more from them, considering they expected as much from me.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional and communicate! Supervisors and directors, at the very least, should contact by email when they promise, those candidates who were not chosen. If you're seeking professionals, and your current hiring staff is not professional, how can you ever rise above subpar standards.

    I have been working at Universal Health Services full-time

    Pros

    Caring staff, top level management do care about staff as well as patients we serve.

    Cons

    Cost of insurance, top level management are also smart business people and the bottom line is the bottom line - ya gotta make them money.

    Advice to Management

    Look to even costs across the corporation in regard to healthcare costs and pricing and salaries, let some of the cream settle down to the bottom of the cup a bit.
