    Take, take, take from the employees. Some places invest in their employees and others do not.

    Pros

    Remodeling the entire hospital. Technology and equipment are a priority. Approachable senior leaders focused on addressing issues, especially with patient care.

    Cons

    Pay was inadequate. Decreasing the paid time off accrual rate was a bit underhanded. Sense of malaise and detachment from more employees than any other place I've worked. That may be sloooowwwwly changing. The RN's they deemed capped out salary-wise received a laughable, insulting bonus that angered a lot of them. Worse yet, they paid it to them in 26 installments!

    Advice to Management

    What can I say there Methodist. If you have a department that employees keep leaving from, maybe they're not the problem.

    Pros

    Loved my job and the patients, great feeling helping them get through procedures and easing their fears, great radiologists

    Cons

    Co-workers more interested in gossip than following HCA's mission. Lack of work ethics and personal boundaries, hostile work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of what is going on with patient care, your long term employees are taking advantage of your company and you.

    Pros

    competent, knowledgeable and helpful peers

    Cons

    Perceived disrespect for professional employees and other staff; eg. customer service rep's.
    Not really listening to concerns and/or ideas of staff. POOR PAY.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to the professionals you hired and stop paying 'lip service' to staff concerns. Also STOP changing the procedures and 'rules' so frequently- this is terribly confusing and ineffective for employees AND CUSTOMER SERVICE.

    Pros

    Decent healthcare, and the hospital itself works towards creating a good environment.

    Cons

    Greatest job duties have nothing to do with my title. Hospital accounting is so specific that it is difficult to move on to other types of companies. The PTO could be much better. Expect to work during holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Work on making every person feel like they are part of the team, not just the favorites.

    Pros

    I like the people I work around daily.

    Cons

    Not nurse friendly, Unfairly compensated for area. Don't care about experience for nursing care.
    Yet they always make a hefty profit.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate nursing and treat us like you actually realize that it is our hard work that actually runs your hospital. Pay experience. It is worth it. Than we can recommend to our colleagues who would help make your business rock it!

    Pros

    It's national. Allows the flexibility to transfer after six months. Flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    I find my floor understaffed 4 out of 5 shifts I work. The days with adequate staffing are great. Patients are cared for, documentation is completed, and you just might leave at 7:30. Other days, not so much. Patients are angry due to lack of attention, overworked nurses and staff,

    Advice to Management

    Staff your floors! Ratings will be better. Patients AND staff will be happier. Less call outs due to an "I just can't deal with it today." attitude.
