    I have been working at WellSpan Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    WellSpan is a wonderful place to work. It is a very caring, compassionate employer that really does care about work/life balance. Lots of high ranking women with leadership roles. WellSpan cares about advancing your career development, even if it means you leave the organization. The benefits are AMAZING and the leadership team is made up of some just really nice and down to earth people. Our mantra is "Assume Goodwill" and people genuinely do just that, always assume that we all have the best of intentions.

    Cons

    As is with all very large organizations, there is no shortage of work to be done. Working at WellSpan is not an exception to this. There are times when we feel understaffed but understanding the need to keep budgets in mind you learn to make the best with less. The good thing is, management knows this and recognizes that everyone is doing their best.

    Pros

    If you have a good manager it might be an OK place to work.

    Cons

    Upper management totally NOT transparent. Layoffs solely to save a few dollars, even though quality of patient care and of the patient record suffered as a result. Way too concerned about the bottom line, rather than people. Pay is low too.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to make $$ at your patient and employee's expense. Try actually being transparent.

    I worked at WellSpan Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and if your supervisor isn't passive-agressive or a bully, the work-life balance

    Cons

    Pretty much everything else...
    Place was run by managers devoid of ethics or decency. Bullying is Standard Operating Procedure. But if you are a first class suck up, you will shine here!

    Advice to Management

    Hire decent human beings to replace yourselves

    Pros

    Free supervision for licensure
    Many resources in terms of CE credits
    Generally pleasant staff culture
    Beautiful Main Campus

    Cons

    Because the company is so large, you often run into difficulties with frequent changes in protocol that are always requiring you to relearn processes. It is difficult to feel connected with any of the decisions that are being made that really affect you.

    Pros

    The Benefits are very good.

    Cons

    Wellspan is to large of a company. They don't care about their employees as a person but look at the employees as a number. A number that will bring in more money. The bottom line is about all they care about. It's a toxic environment to work in and employee harassment is very prevalent. And nothing is ever done about the harassment. Managers only care if the employees are making them look good. Not if their employees are happy with their working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees. Not the bottom line.

    I worked at WellSpan Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Comparable salary and benefits for position

    Cons

    Administration scrutinizes and records your every transgression (whether your fault or not) and is duplicitous in its dealings with physicians, willing to change contract conditions without negotiation, and hold you to unrealistic performance goals without providing the mechanism/workplace to meet those goals. The administration is bloated,high-handed, opaque and certain of their infallibility. It is a toxic corporate culture that preaches engagement and patient care but really only worries about the bottom line and their bonuses. Caveat emptor!

    Advice to Management

    Don't take 20 administrators on road trips to your clinics to check out how 'lean' your organization is. The incongruity is offensive to those whose work actually pays your salaries.
