    I have been working at Universal Health Services full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Been with the company a few years now. My co workers are great. Everyone have good and bad days. Work flow is consistent. You could never say you don't have work to do. Everyone is very helpful.

    Cons

    The pay isn't that good. The raises are horrible. Now if you have a degree then I guess you would be pleased with the pay. No holiday bonus at all. But u do get every holiday off.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Universal Health Services full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Good PTO, sick hours, stock purchase benefits, 401k matching, decent place to start as a new grad RN. Able to move through floors through experience and timing (such as med/surg, IMC, ICU or ER). Seniority and loyalty pays off the longer you stay at the company

    Cons

    For-profit hospital that only protects its profits and not staff or patients. Hospital equipment is old while they go off and build new hospitals and facilities. Non-unionized and hospital abuses staff by pushing unsafe nurse-patient ratios which diminishes quality of care. Staffing and HR depts constantly giving attitude to nursing staff. Doctors disregard nurses and intimate them. Management of course takes their side....

      Current Employee - Sales and Business Development Representative 

      I have been working at Universal Health Services full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I truly enjoy working at one of their facilities and appreciate the awesome leadership that has been put in place. The CEO at my hospital facility is very engaged and likes to hear from their employees

      Cons

      It would be great to have more of a touch to corporate. I do understand they are very large, but an opportunity for continuing education to learn more about the corp would be great.

      I have been working at Universal Health Services full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      UHS has a lot to offer. They have great benefit packages (vision, dental, health, short-term disability, long-term disability, life insurance, etc.) and 401k matching. It's also a great company to learn from as they are the largest behavioral health company.

      Cons

      There's not a lot of room for growth unless you move departments. They are also old school, and don't like to budget on budgets. This doesn't mean they don't pay you well, they do pay fairly good, and offer raises every year. Just don't expect to make a million dollars while working with this company.

      Advice to Management

      Not a huge fan of the new PTO policy. It's almost like you are punishing employees if they get sick by taking away their vacation days.

      I have been working at Universal Health Services full-time for more than 2 years

      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...
