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

    Pros

    Team was the best I've worked with so far. Management supports you and gives you opportunity to grow. Within the department itself, they encourage cross-training with other analysts and furthering your education / certifications. The team itself is fun and light-hearted. Great group of people to work with. It was a small security team so lots of opportunity to work on a variety of projects so you're never bored. Opportunities to lead projects and grow as an analyst. CISO has an open door policy and cares about you as a person and what you want to do career wise.

    Vacation: 3 weeks

    Pros: 3 weeks vacation, great team to work with, diverse work and opportunity to grow, good work life balance

    Cons

    Traditional organization - you are not allowed to work remote or work from home ever. Pay also sucks compared to other opportunities in Philly and other cities. Dress is business casual with ties depending on whether you're at HQ or not.

    Cons: pay sucks, dress is formal, remote work or work from home is prohibited

    Advice to Management

    In order to attract the next generation you need to loosen up a bit. Work from home on Fridays or have a set amount of remote days is a necessity. Pay also needs to be considered as I was doing double the amount of work as my peers in other industries and they were easily getting paid $20k-$30k more.

    Pros

    Company is fair and consistent. Good salaries. Great opportunity for advancement. Able to be creative. Talents are recognized by upper management.

    Cons

    Doesn’t really understand community based behavioral healthcare. Leadership not invested in community and not focused on fiscal responsibility. Poor resources for getting work done considering it’s a for profit.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. It's in a very nice Inland Empire location. No traffic if you live in the area.

    Cons

    Low quality of life. This company does not allow family time. Why??? They will schedule you 6 days a week which is impossible for a night shifter. It's split over a weekend so as not to pay you overtime. Then they only give 1 day off in between, schedule you to work 3 days, then 1 day off before the cycle repeats. I'm literally in this building every single day. Complaints to management will be ignored. They treat temps better than full time employees. Work here as part time or PRN only. Otherwise... steer clear! They don't respect you.

    Advice to Management

    You'll retain employees if you provide flexible schedules.

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

    Pros

    The great many patients I have worked with. Since it's a smaller hospital, the staff is like family. Everyone is so friendly and helps one another.

    Cons

    The staffing issues. Not a lot of people want to work in the Mental health field. It's hard to keep a staff.

    I worked at Universal Health Services full-time

    Pros

    I loved working with the patients and some of th techs.

    Cons

    Very clicky for it being a big hospital. Management has their favorites. New hires are on probation for 90 days. If they don't like you, they will try to fire you for any reason. Pray you don't get sick during that 90 days or have an emergency because you'll get fired for giving reasonable notice and even having a note. Everyone does not have an equal voice, If you are going to be a tech, shut your mouth and do what the nurse says. You may be right at times but you'll get fired for even raising a question.

    Advice to Management

    So many policies but you're selective on how you follow them. Be just and fair. You play a big role that effects people's personal lives. Upper management does not even know the on the floor staff.
