    Pros

    Good health benefits, 401 K, paid time off.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't care about the employees their only concerned with the bottom line and their HCAHPS.

    Advice to Management

    Consider listening to your employees when they have suggestions. Stop adding more work on your already overworked employees. Do away with the ancient software.

    I have been working at Universal Health Services full-time

    Pros

    Opportunities for overtime. Health insurance. Paid time off.

    Cons

    Poor communication in general. High turnover resulting in unprofessional and inexperienced staff. Lacks consistency.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new staff with more experience and provide better teeing to new employees. Provide better opportunities for current staff such as higher pay, promotions, and other incentives. Rethink program for residents, it's not effective because staff do not use it properly and there's very little consequences for positive and negative behavior. I think

    I worked at Universal Health Services part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours. The doctors were great. I liked most of my managers.

    Cons

    No employment reference! Too many green nurses.

    Advice to Management

    Dig in your pockets and provide a standard employment reference--not the Work Number. This amounts to a 'hole' in the resume.

    I worked at Universal Health Services full-time

    Pros

    Guaranteed money jobs Are always available

    Cons

    They are very incompetent with mental health laws, all about the money, don’t care about patient care, a lot of gaslighting and broken promises, lies crossed all over the place. If you don’t believe me suit yourself and research the federal investigations former employees placed against ucbh.

    Advice to Management

    Learn mental health law and practice it before requesting licensed therapists

    Pros

    On one hand h.r. worked with you if time off. Good company can advance if you run in right circles.

    Cons

    Some mgrs. and supervisors should not have been in their position couldn't answer questions always had to get back to you. Also gave out work they didn't even know how how to do or never worked. Not so forgiving on having to be out of office as h.r. Favoritism shown in the office. Attitude when trying to get assistance with accounts from supv. and mgrs . Too much to put down.

    Advice to Management

    Too much to put down.

    Pros

    There are no pros only cons

    Cons

    It was a complete nightmare! No repercussions for children except taking away points that don’t matter anyways. Workers are treated like a trained pack of dogs. You taught to be horrible to the children. This place needs shut down! It was the biggest mistake of my life to ever step foot in that building.

    Advice to Management

    Stop telling new hires that is getting better than what you see on reviews online! It’s not!

    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.
