    I have been working at Greenville Hospital System full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, dedicated co workers, excellent surgeons, clean environment, awesome food court, Pharmacy, credit union and childcare($$$$) on site. Lobby looks like it belongs in a Ritz Carlton.

    Cons

    Management!! They don't follow HR policies ( and HR will ALWAYS back them) they never thank you for your efforts, think getting a lunch break is a privilege, and they don't care if you get relieved on time. Do not voice an opinion or disagree with them. I have seen many great long term employees let go for this reason. At this time I would NOT recommend working here in the Operating Room. Too frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously, know your policies. There's too much focus on gossiping and not enough on having competent employees. Supervisors and Nurse Managers have no clue what goes on in the OR. They don't speak to employees about their jobs, don't give any positive feedback, and couldn't circulate or scrub if you had a gun to their heads.

    Pros

    There are good healthcare benefits.

    Cons

    As a professional employee, one of the most difficult things is to work for an unprofessional Manager. My manager would discuss in detail about her personal business to everyone and was more concerned about becoming a friend then being the Boss. There were a lot of very uncomfortable conversations which made coming to work stressful. Also, the salaries are very low at this hospital.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is to listen to employees when they come to you with problems regarding their managers or supervisors and do something productive about the situation.

    Grow up and be fair.

    Biggest employer in the Upstate, but do not treat their employees with the same respect that they want the employees to

    Pros

    Working within the hospital system allows you to become familiar with the physicians in the area and in the network, so that you know who you would want to participate in your healthcare if needed.

    Cons

    Poor utilization of the physician office nurses, with no advancement available. This is especially true for the LPN's which are only used in these offices. If you work outside of the hospital in one of the physician offices, there is no "true" time off for what they consider paid holidays. If the office is closed and you do not have enough hours in your own PTO bank to cover the day off, you do not get paid, so in order to get paid for a so-called holiday, you have to use your own PTO......that is not providing paid holidays. Only hospital staff, really get paid hoilday time off, as they may work the holiday, get paid time and a half for working, and then get another day off with pay without using their own PTO at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to have opportunities for LPN's to move from clinical care to other areas of nursing, as the RN"s do without telling them that if they are requesting this, they may have loss their compassionate if they request to do so. Also, all clinical staff should be rewarded the same amount of PTO accrual. Currently, LPN's are looked down on within this organization, and do not rget the same respect as the RN's . That is why, they are only allowed to work in the physician offices, and do not accrue time as quickly as other clinical staff, they are listed under the non- professional catargory. ****************when you have a good nurse, value her/him without regard to LPN or RN.............alot of LPN's have more knowledge, and/or experience then the RN's .

    I worked at Greenville Hospital System

    Pros

    Top salaries for the region. Great learning experiences seeing the most challenging cases. Prestige received from community.

    Cons

    Very impersonal and cutthroat environment. Too much hostility and back-stabbing from fellow employees. Upper management fails to reign in unfair middle management making the work environment hostile causing a large turnover of staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn from the Studer Group and change the way you treat your employees. Get rid of managers who have no business managing people. They may know how to run an office but have terrible people skills when it comes to how they treat their subordinates.
