Medical Support Assistant (Former Employee) –  Hershey, PAJanuary 4, 2018
My first year as a float management was great. Radiology management is either to personal or not enough depending on the person. Obvious favouritism in the unit. Not enough following the rules for all employees. Harder you work the more they want and the less you GE back.

Hershey Medical Center Management is horrible!
Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (Current Employee) –  Hershey, PADecember 7, 2017
Providing nursing care to my patients is the most enjoyable part of the job. Unfortunately management is very cut throat. They are not truthful with their employees. The staff that work in my department are not team players and are out for themselves. If a family member had to come to my department, I would not recommend them to come here because I do not believe great care is always given.
Pros
The patients
Cons
The Management

NMR Center
Summer Clinical Intern (Former Employee) –  Hershey, PANovember 26, 2017
I was a research intern at the NMR center -- my boss was a bit sexist, did not give great instruction and all the researchers tended to overestimate what 1st year undergrads knew.

A great organization - but
Network Analyst - Senior (Current Employee) –  Hershey, PANovember 11, 2017
A great organization, but the Healthcare industry is in a time of transition.
The next few years will be especially challenging with a LOT of corporate mergers, and acquisitions; as well as the fundamental changes in the ways in which healthcare is delivered.

Mostly faced pace with occasional layed back work assignments
Clinical Laboratory Scientist II (Former Employee) –  Hershey, PANovember 1, 2017
Hardest part of the job is the limited Holiday & Summer PTO usage. Between Thanksgiving week & Christmas, you can only use 2 vacatinon days. During the summer, you can only use 10 days, 5 days at a time.
Pros
Cheap health/dental/eye insurance especially if you are single
Cons
Parking is a pain.

Excellent academic medical center
Nurse Manager (Former Employee) –  Hershey, PANovember 1, 2017
PSHMC has many opportunities for new nurses starting their careers. This is a Magnet facility dedicated to the professional growth of their nurses. This is a higher acuity hospital with a very fast pace. One has to be highly motivated and patient focused to work there. They have recently started a vibrant graduate nurse program in their amazing emergency department. If you are in nursing school and the ED is where you want to work, this is the ED for you! Iif you want a competitive salary and the opportunity to care for the sickest of the sick patients, you need to work at Hershey. They really are the next level!! You won't regret your choice!
Pros
Excellent orientation programs.
Cons
Salaries are not as competitive as other local hospitals. They are working on that.
