    "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.

    I have been working at Universal Health Services part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Potential for tuition assistance and progressive learning opportunities...IF you have regular access to a computer.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay, critically understaffed, so much that positions are overlapping in several areas, making everyone overwhelmed and exhaustively overworked. Meal times are far and few between.... 10-15 minute break...ha, good luck! Opportunity to convert from Per Diem to Part-Time or better, fat chance! Almost seems like they push it as far as they can to avoid paying any benefits. This business would benefit greatly from a union presence, nobody is looking out for the worker bee!! If you're a puppet type personality, this is the place for you. If looking for growth, don't waste your time.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more, commensurate with the level of work they're doing. If you're crossing two, three and four different roles, the employee should be paid those wage rates when doing those functions. Make cross training, and career growth opportunity more accessible to those that don't see the computer everyday. Highly recommend leadership be sent to interpersonal skills training. There's more to being a leader than just having the word manager in your title.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, loved working with the kids, overtime if I wanted it. I worked as a FLEX staff counselor at a boarding school for problem kids and it was the perfect arrangement. I could tell staff really cared and the kids were great!

    Cons

    Oftentimes we were understaffed and could have used an extra couple counselors.

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

    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.
