    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.

    I worked at Universal Health Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Leadership involvement, salaries ( employees are paid well here for RN and Techs), benefits, flexibility, some wonderful team mates who put patients first, it could be patient centered- I hear this often from directors, they put patients first, directors are helpful, employee activities and fun games

    Cons

    if you are only there for a check its not for you, communication is a problem, some staff are entitled and negative and it can impact the rest of the department,

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

    Pros

    My coworkers and management are awesome.
    Floor staff always have your back, and for the most part management is always willing to help.
    Rewarding work.
    Usually overtime you can pick up.
    Many opportunities for advancement.
    Competitive pay.

    Cons

    Inconsistencies with rules on units per different nurses.
    Work/Life balance can be really bad sometimes.
    Highly stressful atmosphere.
    Upper management seems a bit out of touch with how units are ran. Sometimes creating ridiculously difficult to enforce policies, and unrealistic rules.
    Benefits are pretty expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Take a day to work on the units before questioning why certain parts of the job aren't done in a timely manner. Other than that, you guys are absolutely awesome.

    Pros

    The nurses and techs are amazing to work with! A Close knit environment where coworkers help and connect with one another.
    Floor staff is very open to new employees questions and concerns.
    Floor staff (techs, nurses, therapists) always have one another’s backs. You will never be alone in a situation, and can always call for help.
    Working in a controlled/scheduled patient environment.
    Extensive orientation and trainings. You know what you will be doing and how to do it before you reach the floor.
    Very generous PTO hours.

    Cons

    Horrible management!!! Management has no clue what’s going on, no one is on the same page with one another about schedules, procedures and rules. Most office workers/management act as if they are better than you and don’t want to give you the time of day.
    They have very generous PTO time but it’s like pulling teeth trying to use the hours, you practically have to beg for weeks and up until the day before you requested off to get it approved. They are horrible with working around schedules (school, work, dr. Etc)
    Always understaffed! Very high turnover rate with employees!
    Low pay with little room and much resistance for raises/promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate your employees, not by gifts but by actions. It happing a lot more often than you see but employees are being pushed away from a job they love doing just because of they way they are being treated by people above them on the ladder.
