Prominence Health Plan (part of UHS) - Steer Clear
Prior Employee (Former Employee) –  Reno, NVJanuary 10, 2019
There are other good places to work. Company has many layoffs. Employees are constantly moved around the office, and this causes a poor work environment. Office space on first floor is cramped and noisy. Managers are awful. Steer clear of this place.

Great people
behavioral healthcare (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYJanuary 9, 2019
Great people, love helping patients, pay very low, high turnover in several areas, don't see advancement much. The people for the most part a great to work with. Most have a real calling for the work they do. Coworkers will be there to help you, cover for you when you are off and begin to feel like a family after awhile
Pros
coworkers and patients
Cons
low pay, no benefits, many part time, prn, flex hires

Food Service Worker at BCA
Chef (Current Employee) –  Bonners Ferry, IDJanuary 8, 2019
Feeding 60 to 80 people of all ages, kids to adult, multiple meals during the day. Lots of change in menu, and variety. Quick paced at times, and some heavy lifting. I've learned tons of different styles of cooking, and how to help kids with autism relate to food.

Good management, and staff. Everyone is kind, and trys to complete their job to the best of their ability. The kids are enjoyable, although I only see them at mealtime.
Pros
Free lunches, Pto, benefits, and job culture
Cons
Wages are a little low, can be out of the way to get to.

Food Service is allot of work for very low pay
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) –  Westampton, NJDecember 26, 2018
The dietitian adds on a bunch of extras for the aides to do and shows favoritism to certain people especially the cooks. She feels as if she can do what she wants and has a power Trip because her mother works there as well. Drug addicts work in the kitchen, play on their phones and come in and leave when they please. Allot gets swept under the rug with this company, it was said that a MHA worker was fired for stealing pills. So why aren't they randomly drug testing? Alot of the patients end up coming right back four and five times to the facility almost none are fully rehabilitated. This company needs to be investigated as a former patient stated on their site for reviews. however, these private companies feel as if they can do what they want.
Cons
Stressful, underpaid, call outs, shady staff, addicts

Owner wasnt a compassionate woman
Human Resources/Client Services (Former Employee) –  75 Ayer Avenue Marietta, GA 30060December 7, 2018
I was there from 9-5 alone. Doing the work, which I didnt mind. I can work alone easily. Workplace culture was horrible. Hardest part of the job was the nurse who was supposed to go see patients 90 days to review their health status. This was never done.

Great place to work
Addiction Counselor (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GADecember 4, 2018
Generally worked more than 40 hours: fast-paced day; always an opportunity to work with people: I learned how to deliver service in a way that helped people help themselves: the treatment team and management worked well together in most cases: the hardest part of the job was offering assistance to people who needed it for sure, but did not want it: the most enjoyable part of the job was working with those that wanted to learn
Pros
excellent opportunity to develop effective people skills and clinical operational modalities
Cons
not being able to turn work off when you get home

Growth opportunities

Experienced surgical technologist (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVNovember 19, 2018
Working at Summerlin Hospital, I learned that having two CVOR surgical technologist is opposite of what I am use to. In this organization, I was able to focus on the patient rather than being over whelmed.
Pros
Able to maintain skills in other surgical procedures
Cons
Will get sent home when there are not heart surgical cases

Mind Numbing
intern (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PANovember 11, 2018
the work i did was tedious and felt pointless. the environment in general wasn't a fun place to work. the people i worked around were, for the most part, fine. But as a whole, the company is a hostile place with a competitive culture. The management isn't very good either. Processes are outdated and over complicated because upper level management refuses to stray from what they've always done. It's quite annoying.
Pros
good pay
Cons
long hours, stressful environment

Compensation is good but the the culture is horrible.
Program Manager of Revenue Cycle Operations (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PANovember 8, 2018
UHS has great work/life balance but the culture sucks. Its a silo community and it isn't encouraged to reach out to people and make connections. This organization is more suited to the Senior Management.
Pros
Parking
Cons
Management, Culture

Pro:Comfortable working with truely 40 hours a week. Con: advancement opportunities are not based on talent or hard work.
Sr. Tax Analyst (Current Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAOctober 19, 2018
It is a perfect job for people who are in their pre retirement mode, very comfortable and cozy if you don't aspire to grow.
Talented and hard working people are not always valued and promoted.
Pros
40 hours a week job
Cons
Career growth is not based on your talent or hard work.

Systems Administrator II (Current Employee) –  Brentwood, KYOctober 8, 2018
UHS is committed to providing quality healthcare for those in need. As an employee I felt that mission in everything I did, and even though I didn't always feel that management was responding, I did feel they were listening.
Pros
Try hard to recognize employees
Cons
Very large organization

Great for part time staff, brutal for full time
Mental Health Specialist III (Current Employee) –  Anchorage, AKSeptember 25, 2018
All buildings within UHS are different-
As a floor manager, part time employees have better perks than full time where I was. Most employees have access to virtually unlimited overtime throughout year. Pool staff get to pick and choose when they want to work, and are still eligible for overtime if you get called in. Many staff bump down to pool or just 32 hours per week, with the expectation they will get more hours.

With a Master's degree and 2 years experience, I received $23 per hour. It doesn't get much higher than that, even for those floor staff who are licensed and have been there for longer.

Management is laughably terrible. They actually have incentives to see that you do not get a raise. (for profit company)
In the battle of treatment v.s budget, budget always wins at UHS. Patients are constantly neglected from both clinical therapists and floor staff. Upper management here is a nightmare, and they never try and retain good staff or nurses. Two of the evening managers are blatantly creeping on the female patients, one of which has been there for 15+years.

If you are a therapist, or other salaried clinician, expect to work 60+ hours per week. Average therapist turnover at my location was less than 1 year. Burnout rate is high.
I did not have a good experience at my location. I will say that very few people here love their job. Most tolerate until they find something better.
Pros
Flexible schedule, especially for part time employees
Cons
Poor management, difficult to get time off, no holidays off

used to be a good place to work, not anymore
RN Supervisor/Unit Manager (Former Employee) –  New Orleans, LASeptember 11, 2018
This was a great place to work for many years. staff was like family. The facility has deteriorated so much in the last year, it is dangerously understsffed and not safe for patients or staff. The new CEO doesnt seem to care about anything except "fill the beds and make money".
Pros
dedicated long term employees
Cons
poor administration, salaries non competative, staffing sub standard
