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

    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.

    Pros

    There is nothing good about Hill Crest. Not being a part of managements in crowd will have you out of the door. I see the worst form of healthcare 5 days a week. You wouldn't believe how bad this place is. Criminal behavior. When the truth is about to come out about wrong doings, corporate will fly in and cover it up.

    Cons

    Please read my pro comments.

    Advice to Management

    Your good , if your a liar,and cover unethical behavior up.

    Pros

    A step back in time? Its like you are walking back into the 1980s. You learn what you don't want in an employer.

    Cons

    No work life balance. No communication. No organization. No direction. No teamwork. No transparency. Full of paranoia. Secrets. Employee moral is terrible. People are sad and downtrodden. Organization hides behind facility names (which aren't branded as UHS on purpose) to try and protect itself. Look up the lawsuits and terrible reviews of the facilities under the UHS umbrella. Or look at the Buzzfeed article. There is no focus on patient care. Constant turnover. Constant lawsuits. Positions are vacant for months, even years. Just do some research.

    Advice to Management

    If they cared I wouldn't be writing this review.

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

    Pros

    Supposed fortune 500 company so I suppose if you were high enough up you could afford to purchase stock

    Cons

    Very poor treatment of employees and recipients of services. Known for sudden closures of their facilities amd extremely low compensation.

    Advice to Management

    If you treat employees better and use real incentives you will be able to retain good staff.

    Pros

    Good people in the company that are fun to work with

    Cons

    I am primarily putting in this review because the company is so bad that they spread their job postings over 3 different account names, their corporate name (posted here), or just "UHS", or whatever their local business is called (in my case BCH Fairfax Behavioral Hospital in Kirkland, WA). They do this because the local ones generally have low reviews of the company while the corporate one does not (They do not put the UHS name in any of their facilities trying to keep the connection covert. If you would like to see why this company is terrible please look up BCH Fairfax Behavioral Hospital in Kirkland, WA for my review there

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so shady, start caring more about the patients than about your pay check

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

    Pros

    Great pay for CO, good benefits. Can't get to 20 wd minimum with pros. This is the worst company I have ever worked for and I've been an RN for decades. Their own long term employees trash the place to new orientees as soon as they can.

    Cons

    RNs are 2 legs and a license, patients are just $$$$. Orientation is horrible and there is no designated charge nurse on a shift. Even the desk nurse will say she is not the charge RN. Techs fill out the assignment sheets even though online classes say a nurse is supposed to. Nurses are expected to chart on patients they have had absolutely no contact with. Mandatory overtime, for which you do not get paid OT. They do not follow any of their own P&Ps, so if something amiss were to happen you better have great malpractice insurance as you will be found culpable if anything were to go wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Leave, because you do not manage/lead or know how to, doing paperwork is not supervising, being snarky is not addressing staff concerns. And do not put new nurses on the floor without complete orientation checklists, they are no help to anyone, especially due to chronic under staffing because everyone leaves once they get the drift.

    Pros

    None. Do yourself a favor and don't work there.

    Cons

    Profits over people is the UHS way. You don't need to work in the behavioral health division to know this. The King of Prussia offices are dismal. Lack of basic respect for employees. No work life balance. Abusers and enablers.

    Advice to Management

    Read up on karma.

    Pros

    The employees are sweet other than that nothing good

    Cons

    There is no therapy treatment. The kids leave worse than when they came. It's about money/insurance, not the productivity of the clients . The kids are allowed to attack each other and staff with no reprocussions.

    Advice to Management

    Staff to client ratio, safer controlled environment to maintain therapy

    Pros

    My coworkers were great and some of the benefits were nice too. They did have special events to raise employee moral which were fun

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Management were not easy to work with. rules and policies were always changing. negative work environment.

    Advice to Management

    listen to employees concerns. make more room for advancement and maybe be more caring towards employees instead of cold and heartless.
