    Pros

    Sufficient benefits package and competitive wage rates

    Cons

    Very weak management. Examples of poor leadership that I have personally witnessed: managers committing rampant time theft by altering their attendance records, overt favoritism, taking credit for staff's ideas when they had insulted them in private, and assigning punitive measures and corrective action for known mental disabilities to discourage the employee enough to quit.

    Advice to Management

    Vet your middle management much more thoroughly to ensure leadership skills. Perform efficiency audits for supervisors and utilize entry-level staff for reviews. I've watched so many intelligent and motivated staff leave positions due to weak management - and its painful to watch such qualified employees leave.

    Overall, working here has been a painfully frustrating experience. People are promoted because of who they know, regardless of suitability. The systems and policies are dangerously scattered and disorganized, and frankly put patients in danger. I've witnessed several egregious occasions when patients' welfare has been recklessly ignored because of laziness and pettiness.
    I continually submit anonymous feedback to our compliance line, because I have been openly punished for pointing out faulty policies that put patients in danger. I've watched my boss question my fellow coworkers to ferret out who "squealed" so I'm well aware of backlash for whistle blowing.

    I've been repeatedly denied career advancement despite my credentials and am currently looking for employment somewhere that values ethics over ego.

    Pros

    Small unit. Have time to interact with the patients. Feel like the staff is family. Easy to communicate with other shifts.

    Cons

    No per diem staff to fill in for sick or vacation time. Some people try to be managers when indeed, they are not.

    Advice to Management

    Need per diem staff desperately. This causes real morale problems amongst the staff.

    Great place to work, good benefits, good people

    Its always demanding because of being so full

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, if we could expand both facilities and staffing it may help.

    I worked at WellSpan Health part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great health insurance. Good pto, and retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Management is seriously lacking. I found the workplace to be extremely clique-y, not very warm to "outsiders". Staff was EXTREMELY judgmental to the certain patients, therefore affecting the care that was provided to them. Nursing assistants were performing tests and procedures that were COMPLETELY out of their scope. My position was a new one to the particular office, and the orientation was sub par.

    Advice to Management

    Educate your employees on cultural awareness.

    Pros

    This is an amazing company to work for because of the people. They are always pleasant and helpful regardless of your stress at the moment. Managers have your back, support and team work has been unprecedented in my career thus far.

    Cons

    It is a large organization and sometimes things fall through the cracks despite the best processes actively put in place. Humans make mistakes anywhere you go.

    I worked at WellSpan Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working in the Data Center Operations group for a number of years my co-workers were great people, and supervisors were fair. Constantly learning something new. Casual environment.
    Health benefits are fantastic as long as you use an in network provider. Growing and constantly working to keep up with current technologies.

    Cons

    There are no consistent skill levels or expectations of co-workers. If you were skilled and made a mistake the manager would come down hard, if you were relatively low skill and did so, rarely a word was said. Lack of communications between the different IT areas was lacking. It was almost impossible to move from the IT Operations area into a more technical area.

    Decent pay and great benefits. Plenty of positions to choose from.

    Cons

    You're just a number. Management's hands are tied due to policies.

    Advice to Management

    Let upper management know what you're employees need and stick up for them
