    Pros

    Nice people, easy to work across departments, easy to express concerns. Good pay.

    Cons

    Very overwhelming work load, location/traffic can mean a bad commute, work space outdated and uninspiring.

    Advice to Management

    Effort should go in to modernizing work spaces and corporate culture. Add staff to understaffed departments.

    Pros

    The facility provides good working conditions and the employees are dedicated to the welfare of their patients. The CEO is quite involved in the day to day operations of the facility providing guidance and oversight.

    Cons

    They don't have a mature IT system. many documents have to be completed by hand and there are no digital copies kept for these documents.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    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.

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

    Pros

    -Very hands-on experience with patients
    -Pay for certifications related to the job, physicals, etc.
    -Sense of comradery amongst floor coworkers
    -Work/life balance if you're lucky enough to land morning shifts (each are 8 hours)
    -Working with Patients can be rewarding if you get a good group

    Cons

    -Complete separation between floor and higher-up positions; I can't name anyone in the front office except the HR department, and that even takes thought
    -A&R takes in patients that we are not trained to treat (countless children afflicted with difficulties in daily functioning, dangerous and aggressive behaviors, other short stays for money grabs)
    -Extreme ratios of patients to staff, two techs can be in charge of 13 patients EACH at times depending on how many people A&R could rake in after discharges
    -Because of the above two, patients can be both hostile and rude which can make the workplace dangerous; supervisors can be hesitant to restrain (physical holds, no artificial restraints) aggressive patients that should not have been placed in hospital in the first place, which results in worker injuries at times.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to take in patients with autism or are in transition to juvenile, train us or let us know in orientation rather than just taking in every possible patient to fill beds for money

    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

    Consistent, high work flow, co workers are helpful and friendly for the most part, food on site, vacation start at 12 days per year

    Cons

    strict work life balance, aka NO WORK LIFE BALANCE. If you want to work from home for inclement weather you have to take a half a vacation day, very conservative, tie and shirt for all employees, strict promotions, if you get promoted from within they will not pay as high as if you were an external candidate
