What employees say

Employees like

Coming together during this covid pandemic to still make the best healthcare for all of our patients coming in. The EVS staff cleaning extra to make sure stuff is clean as can be, nurses either helping out on other floors or screening people when they come in. The thing with healthcare is it doesn’t stop during a pandemic like everything else does. So gotta keep everybody upbeat to have the best experience
I think the most positive experiences I have are interactions with patients and nurses. It’s great holding the door for patients or helping them get where they need to be. It can be scary going in for work at hospitals so seeing someone care the moment you get there is great. Nurses are always so greatful for my work and always let me know
My department cares for each other. I didn't get in trouble for missing work during covid 19 when I lost child care. Some of my co workers even got together and bought my diapers and formula. It's a big company but yet very personal and caring. I've been there for 14 years now.
Overall the dept is personable, great director. Staff works well together. Job skills remain sharp and up to date considering acuity of care and patient population. We are a teching hospital so we are always trying new things. It's a great place to work
I really appreciated the benefits that I received through UPMC. I feel the benefits package was top notch compared to where I’ve worked in the past. I do wish they would listen to employees a little more when it came to issues with management.

Employees don't like

The salary is not competitive for athletic training. They try to force a business model which doesn’t work well with the profession. They should allow more room for growth professionally outside of management positions and titles. They need to treat employees well based on doing their jobs, not for participating in outside work obligations that seem to encourage a friend based positive reinforcement system.
Expecting 1 person to do multiple jobs. Management expects so much out of it's employees, but does not do it themselves. Multiple meetings where so many people who do not have to be involved in when there is other work that needs to be completed. Some people who are involved in patient care worry more about getting to meetings than working with their patients.
The parking for general employees is terrible. There's public transportation but waiting for it in the dead of winter for hours is not fun. I wish there were more perks for healthy behavior, or healthy snacks at work for free or reduced cost. I wish there were more flexible or remote options.
I don't like that our company doesn't seem to get it right with how to keep employees. We are always hiring new people, they take 2+ months to train and then someone else quits. Management says they care but nothing seems to change.
In Wellsboro we do a very good job caring for our patients and our community. The administration in Williamsport tries to micromanage despite not being on site and knowing how things are run at such a smaller facility.

Suggestions for improvement

The culture needs to be far more mainstream and there should be more options for food, at least in my building. They just keep cutting perks more and more. There should also be far more of an emphasis of working from suburban locations.
More options for benefits including an employee lounge, free food and drinks, more allowed vacation time. It is shocking there are so few specs to safely and securely talk with colleagues that are truly HIPPA compliant areas.
Better compensation, more levels of advancement as a nurse, hire night only staff, have an age limit on the requirement to work nights (not required over 40)
Improve payMore consistent communication with employees answering all questions on town halls. Currently questions are filtered and answers are spun
Asking workers to do a little less. Most people do a job of many others and people are getting burned out and it affects patient carr
