    Poorly managed E.S. department, great co-workers, EXCELLENT shift differential

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Tampa, FL

    Prosthey have the BEST shift differential pay in the entire area from polk, pasco, pinellas, etc.
    They have benefits NOW (not when I worked there) starting at 10 hours for some regular employees and they do have a decent cancer screening program for employees and a wellness/sick clinic that is open; they also used to have a way for you to buy a babysitter on-call with small fee copay as their onsite daycare is always full for smaller kids and has no openings during later shifts when it's closed, obviously
    they E.S. department had some of the best trainers in the business, including persons who had been there years, formerly were in management but could run circles around the top brass with their keen understanding of people and knowledge of the way the hospital operations and budgeting ran
    you truly feel you are making a difference and the do have great ways to advance you, if you have good attendance (*caveat in cons)

    Consthis company does not really promote work-life balance and should never have been a working mother of the year company back when it was because most of the women who had no office and breastfed were not allowed to use the breastfed rooms as they were for cancer clients and their families only.
    this company made newbies work 9 days straight with no day off when you first started years ago...seriously??? that was like so exhausting when you work in a hospital at a floor job on your feet! It's all good when you get advanced nursing or doctorate pay but when you are not, it's not so good because you cannot afford a day off to luxuriate when you are not scheduled to work, you must still do all the usual things that those who cannot afford "help" do like clean your home, car, yard, etc.

    Advice to Senior Managementplease remember this a cancer center, the patients need clean rooms and not cleaned with water, but real disinfectant

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

    It's stressful being new

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHave met some nice people. The mission is wonderful and working for a cancer center means a lot.

    ConsIm new to the company in the last quarter and since joining the company have realized that I'm almost on my own to learn my job. In every job I've ever had there has been a planned training for someone new to the company. But that is missing. It seems as if I am supposed to already know exactly how things go and be perfect. It has been quite disheartening because I had such high hopes for myself. Not sure how it will go but I can say it stinks to be new here

    Advice to Senior ManagementPrepare for new folks, set up clear trainings, think outside of the box on how we can help make this new person comfortable don't always leave them to it.

    Heavy on process; disorganized and dishonest management

    Developer (Current Employee)
    Tampa, FL

    ProsExcellent flexible work arrangement possibilities for some IT staff--work from home one or more days per week, or have a compressed work week (i.e. work more hours a few days per week or pay period and have one weekday per week or pay period off).

    Very good pay for certain positions.

    Fairly generous time-off accrual and a PTO 'cash-in' option mean one rarely can't take time off or benefit financially from not taking time off.

    The environment is fairly casual with respect to expectations. Anybody with any competence is very likely to find it easy to appear much more capable than his co-workers (but: see the 'con' re: tolerance of inferior performance for why).

    ConsThe benefits package underwent a huge downward 'adjustment' in the 2012/2013 year; I would rate them at well below average

    Communication from the executive level down to the lowest supervisor is painfully absent. Frequently direct supervisors and their immediate supervisors provide conflicting information regarding policies or new initiatives.

    Within my department it is clear that the managers and their director are frequently on completely separate pages. I have been told two different things by my supervisor and his boss on more than one occasion. It is also very clear that my immediate supervisor, his peers and their boss do not have a unified direction in mind for the department. There is nothing that binds our teams together, or even that binds the individuals on my team, to work toward a common goal, so I often find myself wondering why we're organized the way we are. I work directly with individuals in other teams and departments, and it seems this isn't just my department.

    There is a high tolerance for continued inferior performance and competence among management and non-management alike. I often find myself thinking it's subconsciously deliberate so that an environment of expected mediocrity is the norm: that's demoralizing. Compounding this is a glib and ready hand to hint at the prospect for promotion, but it always seems to be "6 to 8 months" down the road.

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

    The general workforce were mostly committed to the institutional mission while leadership was not.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Tampa, FL

    ProsDedicated employees are genuinely proud of the Center and its mission and patients for the most part have positive experiences.

    ConsImpressions are more valued than substance and truth. Patient care is not truly valued. Leadership has been essentially clueless about some key issues for 25 years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTruly attend to all of those employee survey data. There is great skepticism and mistrust because of the lack of genuine response.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
