    I have been working at Universal Health Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company has good benefits and decent pay, they hire competent workers and seem to encourage staff members to give input in certain areas.

    Cons

    Administration constantly looking to make cuts, and it is always focused on staff, and cutting staff positions. Too many redundant upper management positions. Also the people making decisions affecting the floor staff typically have never worked or worked very little on the floor and are out of touch.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting the floor staff short, look elsewhere for budget cuts, the nursing staff are the backbone

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

    Pros

    Very supportive management and upper management. Always helpful, and knowledgeable. Departments work together and communicate well with one another to resolve patient issues. Good pay. Debbie Zepeda and Diane Acheff are top notch supervision! I genuinely enjoyed my time with the company. It was a great team atmosphere!

    Cons

    Just like any other position there will be some things you do not like. I think the only con would be short lunch breaks but I still consider this to be something trivial.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be supportive of the staff and continue to be awesome at what you do!

    I have been working at Universal Health Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Can't think of any besides the few times we have opportunities to help the patients

    Cons

    Extremely low pay. Techs are treated like they do not matter. Most of us have undergraduate degrees yet they still treat us like imbeciles. Dangerous work environment. High patient to staff ratios. Management only cares when corporate or state is here. Favoritism is rampant regardless of how hard you work. They work the good workers to death and discard them like yesterday's trash if they dare complain. Management cares only about the bottom line. Very unethical ways to make patients have increased stays and "run their insurance out" Truly horrific morally and ethically

    Advice to Management

    Your turn over rate wouldn't be so high if you actually treated your staff with the slightest bit of respect or empathy for the situations you put them in. Higher pay for dangerous work.
    Could go on but as most of is know, management couldn't care less about their floor employees

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

    Pros

    I strongly cared about the employees I worked with and the patients that truly were there for help. Most days are pretty consistant.

    Cons

    Some employees who have been there along time tend to stick together. Things that are clearly unacceptable for us to do as employees don't seem to apply to then. Pay is low just above the minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Newer employees shouldn't feel afraid to tell mgt. about misconduct of senior employees. The turn around is high because standards are not routinely followed by everyone.

    A great resume builder and learning experience

    Cons

    If you aren't friends with the right people, you are treat like an outcast.

    Advice to Management

    People need more motivation to stay employed as a Tech. This position does so much and gets talked down to constantly
