      Pros

      Management is wonderful!! The company leadership is very committed to making this a company that really does work as one to improve patient care and I feel as if they really do care about the patient's that they care for and also for their employees. Benefits are great for employees!!!

      Cons

      I really have not experienced any cons while working for this company. The work schedule can increase at times of high patient census, but that is really to be expected in order to give excellent patient care with medical records that are ready and up-to-date for caregivers to review when making medical decisions for their patients.

      Pros

      Each program is like a family. Working as one happens often. The health benefits are amazing, which is the main reason I'm still there. Outpatient recently changed it's entire structure to one that promises to show true progress. Our Day Hospital and Inpatient services are often coveted and specifically requested because the lower level employees are excellent and truly care.

      Cons

      A majority of the programs are not self-sufficient which decreases efficiency across multiple programs. Most upper management is incompetent, inefficient, and ineffective. They only care about money but they're really bad at making it. There is at least one actual psychopath among them who runs her department using fear and threats. Plenty falsification of documentation, provided something was actually documented. Patient care is not only ignored but patients are often knowingly put in harms way. Employees only matter when they start making waves. They are placed in highly dangerous situations and then fired for expressing their concern. Many employees have been fired in order to cover up malpractice and/or various scandals. The wrong people tend to be promoted. Employee engagement surveys consistently show that employees are regularly being asked to do things they believe are unethical and/or that go against their personal morals. An overall pretty terrible environment, especially for people who care about other people. Do not work here if you are someone who cares...about anything. Also, raises are a joke. There's no mathematical explanation for them.

      Pros

      Integrated health system across all specialties.

      Cons

      Patients do not come first business comes first. Money trumps all patient care or experience.

      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.

      I work here only because of the location, otherwise I would not recommend it.

      Pros

      It is within close proximity to my home, so that makes it convenient. They let their employees eat and drink as much food in the units as they want.

      Cons

      It is very cliquey and I do not feel that the nursing practice keeps up with best practice for patient care. If the group you work with does not like you, then you are doomed. I have managed to try to keep my distance from the clique in my unit and I have been OK. But I have seen other nice and competent workers come and go because false statements were made. There are a few nurses who have actually fabricated complaints about others. It does not seem to be addressed here.

      Pros

      Competitive Pay, great benefits, treated very well by the company and superiors. Lots of employee support, programs and activities.

      Cons

      Patient care jobs can often be mentally and physically taxing, not much sick time offered, unusual hours.

      Very difficult place to work if you like people and value patients and want to see them do well

      Pros

      The benefits package is awesome - but I recently started getting collections notices in the mail for things that should have been sent to my insurance. I called the insurance company and they said they didn't accept the bill because there was a form missing that I didn't know about (because, telepathy?) So wellspan can't even get that right.

      Cons

      1- Management and leadership home grown from wellspan who are uneducated, not qualified, and incompetent. Any other viewpoint is seen as a threat and vehemently opposed. They then spend huge amounts of energy to protect themselves and save their ego while patients continue being hurt. No home grown wellspanner ever gets fired - they waste obscene amounts of money creating positions and moving people around to keep the incompetent protected. The best way to get promoted here is to disastrously fail at the job you are currently doing. 2- Patient care is atrocious and they care more about their own feelings/egos than doing the right thing. Providers are protected to a fault and celebrated for giving dangerous care. Nursing has no voice and are at a loss on the front lines watching harm happen and unable to do anything about it. Nurses are miserable, have no support, and their care and attitude is a result of this. 3- If you are an outsider, there is a target on you. If you are a minority or woman, forget it.

      Mostly a positive experience with the exception of the past few years.

      Pros

      Great benefits. Massages are covered in the health plan and generous PTO time can be banked to 1 1/2 your annual amount.

      Cons

      Restructuring over past year or so has led to a lot of confusion with staff. Money (budget) seems more important than patient care and patient outcomes.
