Suggestions for improvement

  • Better staffing to avoid backing up the ER and causing unhappy patients. Better recruitment team. More incentives for staff who have been there for a long time.

What I like about the company

AHN puts forth an effort to make employees feel appreciated. The recruitment team could use some improvement but overall I have had a good experience working here. I would choose this company over other hospitals in the area.

What I dislike about the company

The recruitment team is awful. There is a staffing issue, so the poor recruitment does not help. They often offer sign on bonuses for new employees but do not offer any incentive for employees who have been there for long periods.

Company Culture

I definitely felt as though the company represented our culture well. Initiatives were taken place in order to create open communication between staff and administration.

Teamwork

We had a few unit initiatives covering this topic. Overall you could see administration pushing for an open and honest manner.

Freedom to work independently

Independence was encouraged.

Internal Communication

Absolutely 5/5. Communication was very open and encouraged.

Office / Work Environment

Probably one of the most comfortable workplaces I’ve ever been in.

Environmental Friendliness

Not 100% sure about this. However, I had never once seen a recycling can.

Work-Life Balance

Scheduling was not too much of an issue, if at all. Lunches were mandatory and always occurred. Small breaks were seen when work was caught up on.

Company Image

Working with this company has definitely grew my skills, knowledge, and abilities. I also know that the culture and honesty of this facility was stellar. I have the upmost respect for AHN.

Workplace Safety

Work environments were safe. Accident prevention elearnings and staff meetings were conducted.

Challenging Work

I would say my work was pretty challenging, being that I am new to my field. However, the atmosphere was very “help out where you can,” which made it easy for me to learn and accomplish tasks when I needed help.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I believe the company should work on the diversity in staff, due to the population we work with. I also think that policy issues could be handled in a quicker, more efficient manner.

What I like about the company

Overall my company operated in a very friendly manner. Personal emergencies did not occur often, but when they did, shift coverage was usually available. If not, the manager and or HOA would be on the floor helping us out. Also, not many companies encourage involvement from the employees, and ask for employee opinions. Committees were continuously motivating us to get involved in a higher level so that we could better our work environment. Finally I will say that opportunities to meet with administrators were present.

What I dislike about the company

I will honestly say that my company had little to disapprove of. As many know this company is currently unionized, which can make positions and necessary fires a bit sticky due to the whole seniority bit. But that would be my only issue.

Company Culture

This is not a nice place to work. The employee means nothing to the company. Most managers have a click of a few employees they like. If you are not in the click then working here is pure hell.

Support from management

NEVER. you are told to deal with it or leave

Teamwork

they encourage employees to tell on each other if you dare to talk about the job if your unhappy about something. They strongly encourage reporting your co workers for everything.

Freedom to work independently

never. they are always sending the click to check on you and belittle you

Internal Communication

They will pull in the office daily and yell at you that is their communication

Gender Equality

You only get opportunities if tour managements best friend

Attitude towards older colleagues

They treat older employees horrible and will make their life hell until they quit

Career Development

You can only advance if you prove that you are a narc and will turn everyone in for everything

Overall compensation for your work

I am very under paid. i have been here eleven years and people starting in my position start out making more money then me. NOT FAIR

Office / Work Environment

Its very cold and only managers can have a heater .

Environmental Friendliness

Thats funny. Hell no they dont. The only people allowed to take a break every half hour is smokers. The encourage smokers to take as many breaks as they need to smoke but non smokers are only allowed a lunch break

Work-Life Balance

They only care about the company. Your needs mean nothing and they tell you that to your face

Company Image

I am embarrassed to admit i work for allegheny health network.

Handicapped Accessibility

Employees are not allowed to park in handicap parking . If you are handicap you are not allowed to work here . You are considered a liability. An employees who walked with a cane was told her cane was a weapon and was not allowed to use it . If she had to have the cane then she did not have a job

Workplace Safety

If your lucky you get trained properly. Mostly you are thrown with someone who does not talk to you and does not want to be around you. Training last 1-2 days then you are on your own

Challenging Work

very challenging no one helps anyone and you are not allowed to complain or ask for help

Inclusive / Diverse

you are not allowed to have an opinion about anything. if you do have an opinion and you say it. you will be pulled into the office and told about it

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire new management . Do not hire from with in. Mandatory training yearly on how to treat people. Strict policies on bullying including from management. Somewhere to report this that is neutral not connected to AHN because they can not be trusted. Handicap parking for employees.

What I like about the company

I have worked for them for eleven years and i have no positive experiences. I did lose weight from being told i am over the weight limit to do my job. i am a medical secretary. I have taken up smoking so i can have a break . you dont get one if you dont smoke. I no longer speak to people because anything you say will be used against you some how. I dont celebrate holidays because i only get 1 a year off some one has to work holidays im told. I also learned that what is written on paper is not what truely happens. They are professional liars. Very Very sneaky .

What I dislike about the company

Managers need to stop harrassing the employees and they need to stop having their little clicks. They all have them . They wont admit to it. Lorraine Azzaroni is the biggest and worst of the bunch she has Bill Englert wrapped around her little finger. He is well aware of all the harrassing going on i have written to him personally about it . I reported Lorraine to him he is her boss. Bill had lorraine call me from his office and put me on speaker phone and she yelled at me for reporting her and when i tried to defend myself she hung up on me then the next day she pulled me in the office and i was screamed at for over 1 hour until i was in tears and lorraine was smiling. Lorraine and Bill allow smokers to have a break every half hour and non smokers are not allowed to leave their post unless its their half hour lunch . Lorraine also allowed only 1 of 2 secretaries to take every holiday off from thanksgiving to new years off including having a weeks vacation from christmas to new year. The two secretaries were suppose to work every other holiday and no one was allowed vacation during this time but this secretary is in lorraines click and the other who was me was not. I reported this to bill and when it got back to lorraine i got screamed at again and i had to work every holiday alone. This is how it works although they will deny it. I am also handicap and was not allowed to park in a handicap parking . Horrible company. Only a good place if your the bosses family or close friend. This place needs to have all new management and they need alot of training on how to treat people because they are very rude to employees who are not in the managements clicks.
