Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Wynnewood, PA – October 2, 2018
There are a LOT of hardworking employees at MLH. The physicians are appreciative of staff and it makes for a collaborative work environment. I believe there are management deficiencies that can easily be remedied, especially those who aren't suitable for management. Just because you have an advanced degree with no experience doesn't make you a good fit. I also feel that there are deserving persons who are not given advancement opportunities and those great workers leave as a result of being overlooked and underpaid. I have benefitted from great exposure and I also work an awful lot but I love what I do.
collaboration, hardworking team players, great benefits
IV Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Wynnewood, PA – August 27, 2018
Since I started my position at MLH there has been a dramatic shift in the focus of management. Everything is about cutting the budget despite the growing size of the healthcare system. Employees are increasingly burnt out and not given any incentives to care much about their jobs. Management and higher ups continue to receive bonuses while the rest of the workforce experiences the elimination of bonuses and reduction of raises and shift differentials.
High cost of benefits, lack of support from management
Telecommunications Operator (Former Employee) – Wynnewood, PA – November 21, 2018
Main Line Health offers great benefits and has a great atmosphere to grow with in employment. The only problem I did see was that there are times that the pay does not equal the importance of the the job. For instance, as a telecommunications operator, the job requires quick responses to emergency but more training is needed and a higher pay scale
Telecommunications Supervisor (Current Employee) – Wynnewood, PA – November 1, 2018
I like the health benefits and love the tuition reimbursement. There needs to be improvement on opportunity growth and hiring from within. The hospitals need to follow the same policies and procedures across the board.
Constantly being asked to perform more tasks. Becoming focused on the financial bottom line. The benefits and colleagues were fantastic.
Schedule Coordinator (Current Employee) – Paoli, PA – June 3, 2018
Constantly being asked to perform more tasks. Management becoming too focused on the bottom line and losing focus on patient care. The best part of my job is the people I work with and the benefits Main Line Health offers.
Becoming more focused on the business aspect of patient care.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Wynnewood, PA – June 25, 2018

Pay and Healthcare plan was great along with yearly bonuses They gave special events and had stuff for there employee around the holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners that were very nice.
FirstCALL Employee Assistance Program (Former Employee) – Bryn Mawr, PA – June 28, 2018
I enjoyed working at Main Line Health. I was an EAP consultant with responsibility for many companies access to benefits, provided CISD's, in-services/trainings, management referrals, and direct counseling
Site Leader (Current Employee) – Wynnewood, PA – June 14, 2018
I thoroughly enjoyed my eleven plus years working at Main Line Health. The workplace was very fair, encouraging and always worked towards achieving excellence. Main Line Health is very customer focused and consistently strived towards being a leader in both healthcare and technology.
Good benefits, safe environment, good company moral.
Practice Manager CT Surgery & Electrophysiology (Current Employee) – Wynnewood, PA – January 31, 2018
I run a practice that brings in over 40% of the business to Main Line Health. It is a multi-specialty practice, yet I'm paid at a single specialty grade. The employees and people I work with are amazing which is the main reason why I have stayed. This past year I've been asked to work 50+ hr weeks without extra compensation. I have taken on an increased roll and manage two practices. I have over 38 direct reports, yet still being paid at a single practice grade level.
People and relationships built with team
Workplace Environment, Space, Stress, long hours without pay
Help Desk Analyst (Former Employee) – Berwyn – October 10, 2018
Mgmt has no interest in keeping good talent. I've never seen such lack of communication anywhere. Help desk is litterally and figuratively walled off from the rest of the IT dept. Stress is high and help is not coming. Things I heard other people say on the phone to end users would get you fired most places. Or at least a visit from HR. Unless you are just beginning your career I would avoid this place like the plague.

Job Work/Life Balance
Work hard in a laboratory setting
Senior Clinical Lab Assistant (Current Employee) – Paoli, PA – August 7, 2018
Work hard daily in a fast pace laboratory setting to provide excellent patient care and provide results in a timely fashion. At times, there are staffing issues such as not enough staff that can cause some stress in the workplace. The management does there best to make sure their employees are taking care of and satisfied as best as they can within such circumstances.
job stability, friendly co workers
no more extended leave, lower shift differential, straight basic leave pay
Employee (Current Employee) – Pennsylvania – July 16, 2018
Unrealistic job expectations from Management. No work-life balance even though this is what they pledge to new employees. Inability to think outside the box and consider change. The only way to get anything done is to continue with the old processes...forward thinking is frowned upon. If you like being micro managed, this company is for you.
Long days and work weeks and no recognition for a job well done
Unit Clerk - Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (Current Employee) – Wynnewood, PA – August 22, 2018
The hardest part of this job is remembering all of the doctors and nurses. Since I work part time and only two days per week, I do not see everyone on a daily basis. But once I got to know everyone I really appreciate the team environment fostered at Lankenau Hospital.
ability to work more hours
no set hours (hours/days fluctuate) - difficult to manage work/life balance
Housekeeping (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 11, 2018
A typical day is working in the ER department where patients are in and out all day. My responsibility and duties consist of keeping a clean and sterile environment. The job can become overwhelming at times but I am flexible and able to work well under stress. Management and staff work well together.
