Worst Job Ever
Psychiatric RN (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVDecember 8, 2014
Spring Mountain and UHS are horrible to work for. Management sets the tone and a culture of playing favorites. If you're not a submissive person then you're on the outside looking in. The DON and ADON aren't leaders. The worst experience of my life.

Stay away
mental health associate (Former Employee), Birmingham alDecember 4, 2014
Cons: everything
Horrible position. No room for advancement. Expect to be physically assaulted by patients and exploited by staff. Horrible pay also. This company is always hiring. That should tell u something. I only work there a couple months and I saw 3 job orientation during my time spent there.

Great people but not worth the pay
Mental Health Tech (Former Employee), N. Charleston, SCDecember 2, 2014
Pros: schedule, coworkers, patients
Cons: pay, benefits
I really wanted to love this job, I was so excited to get the job but its a very mentally exhausting job and their pay is not in line with the responsibilities. My co workers were great as well as the patients. I enjoyed helping the patients and hearing their stories, most of them have had very traumatic lives. Most staff is great, there are some nurses – more... that aren't so pleasant but just a few bad apples. The schedule was accommodating, but pay was terrible. The mental health techs basically do everything, from every part of interacting and monitoring the patients to counseling/groups, diet regulation, enforcing rules and schedule, sometimes even personal care. The nurses get to sit back and do meds, some counseling but mostly paperwork. So the techs have the most important and stressful job, most interaction with patients, most risk, and yet the pay is barely over minimum wage. Compensation was not equal to the stress of the job. Which explains their extremely high turnover. – less

Corrupt and Evil
Mental health worker (Former Employee), meridian mississippiNovember 23, 2014
Cons: many
Management all stick together and will get rid of anyone they see as a threat. I will tell any one to get out when you can find something better. No one is safe, you can work over time and be a well rounded employee, but just let one thing happen, they will fire you. A learning experience for me, but will never be loyal again. Most definitely was a – more... bad decision working for this evil place – less

hr (Former Employee), savannah, gaNovember 19, 2014
This company only sees one thing, $. The upper management really doesn't have a clue what they are doing. As soon as you disagree with the COO or CEO, you're out the door.

Awesome co-workers, great company, new leadership
RTC (Current Employee), Turning Point Youth Center, MINovember 17, 2014
Pros: great leadership
New CEO is taking the facility to a new level. He has already made quite a few changes and it's all for the better. Flexible work schedule, as much overtime as you would like. You can move up easily.

This company only cares about $$$. Not patients or employees.
RN Case Manager (Former Employee), Lexington SCNovember 11, 2014
Cons: everything
UHS repeatedly encouraged lying about bed availability when referrals without a payor source came in. Management often placed patients in rooms without promise of a bed. The facility in Lexington SC is old, depressing, and badly in need of updating. And why that's not happening is confusing since this place doesn't pay employees their worth or provide – more... innovative treatment or care.
Management is only concerned about sales and seems to have NO clue about managing human services staff or a treatment facility. Staff often work with no breaks and there is no real training for fast paced positions. The culture of the company is GREED and IGNORANCE. – less

Upper management has no sense of direction, but are quick to over react.
Behavioral Health Tech (Current Employee), Valley Hospital Phoenix ArizonaOctober 15, 2014
Pros: free meals, tons of overtime, most of the employees are good to work with.
Cons: under staffed, overworked, overreacting management
Just not a great place to work. As an employee your license is constantly at risk. No sense of direction from upper management. Very uncomfortable work environment. Instead of being proactive they have a reactive approach. Worst DON ever. Too many employees with sugar in their tank, including management.

Pros: nice facility
Cons: terrible management.
I worked for Case Management. Terrible director. I've been a case manager for 15 years and this was the worst treatment I have ever experienced. He has no empathy for his staff. Don't work for this company. Especially case management department.

Poor Upper Mgt...EXTREMELY Bias
Clerical (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZSeptember 23, 2014
Pros: pays higher wages than most in the phoenx area
Cons: too many to list...see below
If you are not liked by the upper management, then you might as well quit. It will be just a matter of time before they will push you out the door. Unethical practices, unfair treatment (both patient & employees), unprofessional management, under staffed & over worked healthcare providers, make it up as we go along environment, and the list goes on – more... and on. The turn over here is off the charts. Even sadder....the hospital I worked at (Valley Hospital Phoenix, AZ) is owned by a HUGE Corporation that is clueless to the aforementioned practices. – less

Enjoyed patient interactions and learning about various conditions. Profit-driven focus and poor resources for providing proper recreation programs
Recreational Therapist (Former Employee), Savannah, GASeptember 23, 2014
Pros: great place to gain exposure to various health conditions
Cons: too focused on money and facility was poorly maintained
Devoted over four years to help develop an adequate recreation therapy program. I had to beg for adequate funding and management was oblivious to the requiements of providing quality recreation programs. Profit- driven mentality resulted in poor quality programs and a low morale. Building was poorly ventilated and patients were provided excessive smoke – more... breaks causing smoke to filter into building space causing me to have headaches and other health conditions. I reported mold and ventilation concerns, but little was done to provide a healthy environment. I would not recommend working for a company that devotes all focus on profits. People's lives are more valuable and CEO's are blinded by $$$. – less

Like being in an abusive relationship!
LPN (Former Employee), Little Rock, ARSeptember 23, 2014
Pros: salary is good.
Cons: extremely stressful environment & almost-impossible workload.
Supervisors have been there a while & have little high-school 'cliques'. They give more shifts to their 'friends'. Opportunities are not available to those equally or more qualified. Overwhelming workload & short-staffed most of the time, making a dangerous situation even worse. Staff get injured on a regular basis. Hard work is NOT rewarded! Minor – more... human mistakes are blown out of proportion, & these people are vindictive. They will ruin your reputation in the blink of an eye! Run! – less

Behavioral Health facility, fair workplace.
Foods & Nutritional Services Director/RD (Former Employee), Fremont CA and Sacaramento CASeptember 5, 2014
Pros: great employees
Cons: lack of employee recognition affected morale in the workplace
Dual function as Director/RD, there were no dull moment.
Learned how to wear multiple hats;
Could be improved by appreciating the warm bodies that gets the jobs done;
Co-Workers can be caring and they are of each other
Juggling of FTE; budget, staffing, flexing for low census days, clinical responsibilities, performance improvement are part of job functions, – more... to get help by hiring per diem or part-time, took more time than necessary;
Completing my daily tasks, but above all spending time with the patients and making a difference in their lives were my most enjoyable moments. – less

Not a good place to work-mental health worker
Mental health worker (Former Employee), Brynn marr hospital jacksonville north carolibaSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: free meal in cafeteria
Cons: no breaks..no help..over worked..under paid
I worked as a mental health worker and basically had to do everyone's job. I took vitals signs for all patients yet they have rn's there. I was told rn"s had to much paperwork...then I gave all groups ex.life goals, teaching skills to the patients etc etc.. I was their mentor ..counselor and teacher..I did the social workers job. All their shifts are – more... 12 hours so your their 7am-7pm.. They have a high turnover rate! Working 12 hours I rarely EVER got to take a break because there not enough workers to relieve you. Your breaks are suppose to be 2 15 min and a 30 minute lunch which you rarely get to take. The pay is Horrible!!!! Basic pay is between 10-12hr depending on experience however for everything that I was doing it should have been more like 17-18$ hr. You walk and sit with patients for breakfast lunch and dinner..you do all their vitals..you security check all their rooms. When you have a group of patients you are by yourself at all times..one day it could be you and 13 adolescent boys or 12 adults.. There is no security either in this mental health facility so if your alone and a group of patients start to fight you have to run down the hall to the phone...I could go on and on....just beware – less

Employees are treated as pawns
Licensed Staff (Current Employee), Heritage Oaks HospitalAugust 22, 2014
Cons: poor morale, mismanagement, low retention
I have worked for Heritage Oaks for over 3 years and within that time I have had only 3 days that I ever called out or missed work, and nothing but positive feedback from the clients, MD's, RN's and other staff that I have supported there as well as the community contracts that Heritage Oaks holds. However I was unceremoniously replaced by less qualified – more... staff to do my job (A bachelors level staff with 6 weeks training in mental health, versus a masters level, Licensed staff.) with little to no explanation as to why, nor any offering of other positions within the company. Then, when they were short-staffed because the new hires were quitting in droves they asked me to come back, I agreed and when they hired enough cheaper staff they replaced me again!

Bottom Line:
Poor morale
Poor management
Bad Karma – less

This is a horrible company
Just a peon (Current Employee), Houston, TXAugust 19, 2014
Pros: there are good people that work here.
Cons: management, compensation, boundaries, unrealistic expectations, fraud!
I work at Cypress Creek Hospital in Houston, TX. This is a HORRIBLE place to work. The CEO and HR director are corrupt. They have no qualms when it comes to lying to protect themselves or finding someone else to blame when they need to cover up the fraud they commit on a daily basis...and the fraud they allow to happen. Universal Health Services does – more... not seem to care that Cypress Creek Hospital is run by tyrants.The CEO is a smooth talker and can weasel his way out of anything. I have nothing positive to say about this company or the hospital. Quality care and hard work are not rewarded. It is so sad that the employees AND patients are so disrespected at this facility. It really is all about the money. I thought that when UHS bought PSI Solutions, things would get better. But everything has gotten worse. UHS stocks keeps climbing...yet they continue with cutbacks. Their mission statement of this company is a terrible lie. Stay away...they don't care about anyone but themselves. – less

Work there if you must, then get out ASAP!!
Mental Heath Tech (Former Employee), Orlando, FL at University Behavioral CenterAugust 19, 2014
Staff are not all treated equally. Administration plays favorites and bends the rules for certain staff. There are several lead techs that are unprofessional that you have to work with. Management overlooks what they want to overlook. Certain staff are promoted to positions that they do not have the qualifications for.
