    HMA

    Medical Technologist (Former Employee) Monroe, GA

    ProsThe particular HMA hospital that I worked for was accomodating to working mothers and flexible with scheduling.

    ConsThe pay rate compared to surrounding hospitals was far less than competitive. Management would act like they cared and that employees opinions mattered but it was clear that they didn't.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBecome more visible by department rounding and implement a better competitive salary package.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    This company does not support their employees.

    Emergency Room Nurse (Current Employee) Spring Hill, FL

    ProsSelf Scheduling, flexible uniform code.

    ConsLow pay, lack of management support and visibility, lack of credible CEU's only provides the basic requirements. Slow ER process of patients, no working system.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be applicable education for the department. Upper management needs to be more visible to be plugged into what works and doesn't work in the department and who is an effective worker and who is just taking up space with very little productivity. Increase pay to be more competitive instead of sending out emails that state you are giving pay equitable raises and then not following thru. You will have an increase in job satisfaction if you do these simple steps and retain your nurses instead of losing employees to all other local hospitals and being short staffed on a day to day basis.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
