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

    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

    UHS is dedicated to its Mission to provide the best care to all patients. The same commitment translates to treating dedicated employees well. UHS offers educational opportunities and encourages employees to take advantage of Tuition Assistance Programs

    Cons

    None, if an employee wants to work, learn new concepts and dedicate oneself to exceeding expectations, opportunities are endless. Todays, younger work force is a little entitled so it is expected that one who has not earned their positon will likely be disappointed where ever the employee finds a position.

    Advice to Management

    Expand to regions in the center of the country. There appears to be a great shortage of providers, especially in behavioral health. Thank you, you are doing a great job!

    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

    If you like working with kids then this is the job for you. It is mentally and physically exhausting but truly a great experience to make a difference in these kids lives. Plus, my co-workers are a second family.

    Cons

    The management is horrible. There is a new Chief Nursing Officer that does nothing but delegate to everyone else and micromanage. This certainly is not the Willow Way or way to get the respect of your employees. Severely short staffed, nurses are over worked.

    Advice to Management

    Raise salaries for nursing, recruit more, find a new Chief nursing officer. Appreciate your employees and let them know you appreciate them. It really goes a long way. Offer more incentives like other local hospitals.
