    Reactive vs being a true leader in the world of healthcare from an Acute perspective.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Universal Health Services

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Several good leaders. Attempting to change culture to a quality driven organization.

    Cons

    Promote "yes men" and folks who just are content and stay.
    Do not fulfill promises
    Micromanagement from the top level, including C suite
    Professional accomplishments are overshadowed by personal feelings that are never based on facts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow your talent in house better. Develop leaders by creating actual plans that have real actionable goals. Think about the patients more than the bottom line.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Richmond, VA (US)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Richmond, VA (US)

    I worked at Universal Health Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits are great (PTO, ELB, health, dental, etc). In class training was good. Position was particularly an everyday challenge which I liked, not the same old routine over and over. I generally got along with everyone there. Service Excellence training was wired into everyone that worked there.

    Cons

    Pay does not match your workload. Managers like to pass along tasks rather than learn and show us on the floor. PTO was a battle to take even though it was your personal time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time-off needs to be less strict and management needs to realize that us floor people are not robots.

    Current Employee - Staff RN  in  Norfolk, VA (US)
    Current Employee - Staff RN in Norfolk, VA (US)

    I have been working at Universal Health Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Higher pay than other local corporations.

    Cons

    With the increase in pay comes lack of appreciation, poor and inexperienced management, no concern for patient safety (only monetary gain), lack of support from administration including no advocacy for employees and inefficient and poor HR management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to consider experience and education when hiring their managers. Many of the managers are Associates prepared or new nursing graduates who are supervising seasoned and more educated nurses, and it shows. Simple managerial tasks are poorly executed if at all. Leadership needs to be modeled positively. Hire intelligent people and then listen to them.

    I have been working at Universal Health Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I honestly can just say it's a job.

    Cons

    Benefits are horrible and constantly get cut. Only care about filling beds and how to profit from whose in them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should focus more on your employees. Happier work environment and perks make for better workers; therefore a better company. Look at Google.

    Increase salaries to be competitive with your competition.

    Pros

    Good benifits, good learning experience for most.

    Cons

    This is not a good place for new grads. Please go to acute care hospital first for a year. Management tends to try to cater to the newer nurses, even though those hired for their experience, are over looked for supervisory positions.
