    Cons

    Communication between internal departments needs improvement. Management can also improve their directing style of leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate more efficiently & frequently with your subordinates.

    Pros

    Positive work environment/co-workers. Supports employee educational growth.

    Cons

    Consistently inadequate in dealing with poor performers. Annually expresses interest in employee input/engagement then squashes any changes that were made due to annual cutbacks etc.

    Advice to Management

    The seesaw of employee engagement vs. perceived short-term needs results in cynical employees.

    Pros

    Nurses are wonderful, caring, and hard working.

    Leadership is more interested in "how they look" than doing actual work.
    Nurses are under appreciated.

    Clean house.

    Pros

    If you find the right leader, you can grow and learn. You will work hard but it's all about your leader and team.

    Cons

    Used to be a place where people were concerned about the issue, not just how it looks. Some leaders are great and some do not have the core values you'd expect in this organization.. Also, resources are distributed based upon the past, not upon the need

    Advice to Management

    Remember that an organization is only as good as the people within it.

    Pros

    Very work/life balance conscious. Good overall benefits, flexible schedule, etc. On the surface, a good place to work. Great immediate manager and coworkers.

    Cons

    Good managers are few and far between. Too many layers of bureaucracy slow down ability to accomplish change. Repeated second guessing by unqualified middle management is discouraging to subject matter experts. Poorly executed reorganizations drive away the good people and entrenches the old guard.

    Advice to Management

    Review the tenure of the most senior management. Don't hesitate to weed out the less than stellar middle management. Encourage all management to trust the subject matter experts and stay out of the weeds.

    Pros

    Many excellent co-workers willing to share knowledge. Opportunities for advanced learning.
    Organization is doing many great things to advance medicine.

    Cons

    Extremely slow in getting decisions from senior leaders.
    Open positions take a very long time to fill.
    Management incentives far exceed the merit increases seen by the work staff.
