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

    Pros

    Health benefits are solid.

    Cons

    True innovation at WellSpan is stifled in large part for three reasons:

    1) Homegrown VPs/SVPs responsible for aspects of the business for which they are unprepared. Leadership recruited from outside of WellSpan and the healthcare industry often encounter resistance and/or passive aggressive hostility when they attempt to implement new processes and programs. Many VPs use their title as currency to prove they know more than their newly hired experts--even if said VP has never had one day of experience in the new hire's area specialty (apparently reading a few articles and throwing around a few buzzwords is enough).

    2) Personality is often prized over performance. Having alternate opinions than your VP/SVP, even when expressed respectfully and in the context of making smart business decisions often gets you marked as a troublemaker, while those who are overly agreeable (IMO) and reflect the preferred image projected by the VP/SVP are showered with praise, promotions and plum projects.

    Advice to Management

    You organization (and the healthcare industry at large) needs to tap into experts with more experience than WellSpan lifers and non-healthcare industry experts who can bring real and lasting transformation to WellSpan. In short, hire smart people, and get out of their way. Live the concept of the matrix organization you purport to be. Leaders need to be saavy enough to recognize good idea from any level of his or her corner of the organization.

    Pros

    Organization's commitment to patients and patient satisfaction.

    Cons

    Many changes w/o support. Knee-jerk policies. Organization Leaders generally don't trust/respect their providers. Work you hard and they ask for more. New compensation plan-ridiculous. Go elsewhere if you want work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Go back a few years when organizational leaders cared about employees rather than acquiring more hospital entities

    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

    Salary and benefits were good.

    Cons

    Awful management at most levels. Never seen an organization with so many computer systems. The same group of leaders keep promoting each other straight to the top. The organization makes you get a mandatory flu shot and doesn't hire nicotine users anymore. They will most likely stop hire overweight people next!

    Advice to Management

    Merge with Hershey ASAP!

    I have been working at WellSpan Health (Less than a year)

    Pros

    For a part-time, entry-level job, the benefits at this company are FANTASTIC!
    Company minimum wage is 10.50 per hour. If you work even one minute after 7pm you get the evening rate of 11.55 for your entire shift. 403b retirement, health insurance, life insurance, EDUCATION benefits, FREE MASSAGES, and a lot of other crap too!

    Cons

    For any of the Service and Trade departments, what little training you receive is not very good. Nobody here knows how to work as a team to get things done, or to provide quality service. All that people care about is what they have to do to leave as soon as possible. In healthcare, or any patient care oriented work environment, that is just unacceptable.

    Advice to Management

    All employees should be trained on all positions, and training time should be more thorough and more time. Also, team leaders should have experience in the area they are supervising and should not be hired from outside the department.

    I have been working at WellSpan Health full-time

    Pros

    The pay rates are pretty good and there is a decent amount of job flexibility when transferring jobs within the system.

    Cons

    Poor management, poor staffing; they make clinical advancement very difficult or impossible depending on which department you work in.

    Advice to Management

    A little communication would be nice, and Being in management is not about seeing how many meetings you can cram into one day or how much of your work you can delegate

    Pros

    Great Nurses and providers who provide amazing care! Overall good benefits for employees. The Emergency Department is receiving an overdue renovation.

    Cons

    This Health system is Top Heavy with very Incompetent Management. They are not experienced enough to run a health care system. We used to have shared decision making but now you are just told what to do with very little support.

    Advice to Management

    This house of cards will start falling down unless you begin listening to your Providers and Nurses. It is shocking to see what has happened to Wellspan.

    Pros

    Great community. Co-workers are kind and hard working individuals but tend to get hired right out of school so they don't come with bad habits.

    Cons

    Failing equipment. incompetent management. Must be part of the "in crowd" to have your voice heard. Little room for career growth unless you kiss up to the right people.

    Advice to Management

    Hire nurses who have experience. people in management positions should have ample experience in the area they manage. Med/surg should not be managed by a maternity nurse. Doctors and nurses should not be sleeping together in the hospital while on the clock.
