Pros: great co-workers, newer technology, customer service oriented.
Cons: certain departments are poorly managed, lower compensation than competitors, benefits seem to be a source of frustration, missed meals often during workday, tense work environment, difficult to get time off or consecutive days off for vacations.
Seems Lancaster General is having management issues, and has for a few years now. Poor communication between staff and management. Staff were treated well historically at their facility, but not in recent years. Parts of the hospital give great reviews of their department, but unfortunately the radiology department has been plagued by problems and has – more... experienced high turnover as a result of chronic frustration. Historically, Lancaster General was a great place to work while having a family. That has changed dramatically over the years and is now considered a place you do not want to work if you are raising a family. The compensation is not on par with its competitors but boasts about large annual profits. Morale in many parts of the hospital are pretty good but in other parts extremely low leaving many parts of the hospital feeling deserted. Co-workers getting along in all the departments is strong, and many relationships seem to extend to outside work time. Very nice to see when work environment is struggling. The care they give is good but again, not on par with its competitors. It is a decent facility which given time and opening up to improvements like changing management and adopting older practices that were working well for them will probably produce an exceptional facility. Just not there at this point, so if interested in working at Lancaster General, just do your research and talk if you can with current employees about how their experience has been. A business will rarely maintain negative practices as it results in negative outcomes for everyone, so usually it will change over time and once that happens, it will be a wonderful and respected facility once again. – less
