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

    Pros

    Flexible work hours and scheduling. It worked well with my degree pursuit. They also have a work study program for nurses to get their nursing education.

    Cons

    Occasionally disorganized management, out of ratio staffing, and the pay for MHT's, while competitive and often better than many facilities in the area, it could be better. The health insurance could be cheaper as well.

    Advice to Management

    Raise MHT pay.

    Pros

    Learn fast or perish. There is no training or onboarding.

    Cons

    Too many to mention. Sick environment. Run by cliques and dumb, under qualified CEO. Sooo many current lawsuits from past employees due to bad management decisions.
    Will blame underlings for everything negative; negate all positive contributions of employees, or take credit.

    The management from Corporate told employees to go on Glassdoor as and flood with positive reviews to counteract all the (truthful) negative reviews. So, keep that in mind as you read the blithely positive ones listed here for this corrupt company.

    Advice to Management

    No matter ypur attempt to avoid acknowledging this, you are solely a "heads in beds" company, purely motivated by profit.
    You will need a complete culture shift in order to survive.
    The UHS (parent company) reputation in the field is terrible, and your psych wards are appalling.

    "Great place to start out but not the best to stay forever"

    I worked at Universal Health Services full-time

    Pros

    Cross-trained in many Cerner applications which allows you to be more rounded to understand how the various applications/systems interface the same data. Great place to start your HIT career as a new grad.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive to the market, or at least not for those who have been employed here for a few years. Work from home is not allowed though exceptions are made for some to work and live remotely. If you need to work from home, you take 4hrs of PTO to work an 8hr day from home. Inclement weather policy -- as long as the parking lots are clear, we are open and to be in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Flexible work hours and competitive pay would help retain employees. Perhaps looking at years of employment and percentage of travel within job descriptions would provide a way to determine flexibility with both.
