    Pros

    You will learn at a pace that is wayyyyyy faster than any other position in the social work field. If you want to boost your career and become an extremely knowledgeable clinician, this is the right place for you. However, if you are lazy or expect an “easy” job where you can coast, this is NOT the opportunity for you.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is poor and work load is really difficult to manage. The expectations are really high, almost to a point where it feels unattainable at times. However, if you can find a way to make this job work and master it, you have gained life skills on how to manage your life in general, and that is the ultimate benefit. You will learn to set boundaries, you will learn human behavior to a degree that no book can teach, and you will have the skills to manage yourself and to work smart.

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting and teaching your employees, as this is a HUGE benefit that people value deeply.

    I worked at Universal Health Services full-time

    Pros

    The only pro I can think of is that I no longer work there.

    Cons

    The women are horrible to each other! Very catty and extremely unprofessional. If you even have any decent looks to you, you will be targeted for whispers and write ups because your sleeves were 1/8" shorter than what's accepted, your heels are too loud, your dress is too short, etc....The staff were way worse than the patients.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more professional ladies in the HR department.

    I have been working at Universal Health Services full-time

    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.
