    Pros

    Quality hard working employees who strive to make it all work. Reasonable Pay.

    Cons

    Terrible benefits, worse every year. Obsession with image, the best staff are leaving or forced out for cheaper, younger staff who cost less but look good on paper. Care quality a constant struggle to maintain for those of us who are left. Chronic understaffing. Abuse of staff by doctors who care little about following the rules.

    Advice to Management

    Stop obsessing over what degrees we have. 20 years experience beats 4 years of college when it hits the fan. You insult us with your attitude to experience. Fix the useless computer system that fails daily. Stop overcharging for care, and at least offer the employees some cancer treatment discounts. We can't afford to be treated here.

    Pros

    Helping People and the physicians are some of the best in the area

    Cons

    Management, benefits declined including educational assistance unless you're a nurse going for a bachelors degree, do not promote from within unless youre in the right click, and there is no work-life balance for some while others in the same role do 40 hours and leave

    Advice to Management

    The culture has declined dramatically, turnover is costly when do you start to listen to your employees

    Pros

    Great care for cancer patients. Staff really concerned for patients well being.

    Cons

    Understaffed, overworked, promised more help that never happened. Additional physician with no additional support staff. Management sleeps their way to the top running around with dresses so short totally unprofessional. Some departments much better than others.

    Advice to Management

    HR was a nightmare and did not listen to staff. Try to retain your good employees training and hiring is very expensive.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, co-workers that really work together. Patient's that appreciate what we do. Feeling like you are making a difference.

    Cons

    Benefits have shrunk year over year. Clinical Ladder is unbelieveably complicated and requires way too much to maintain level. If you don't meet requirements, you are dropped a level and suffer at least a 5% pay cut, possibly more if you are placed in the low end of a lower level. Lack of adequate staffing. High nursing turnover. Management does not understand what the nurses do, or how hard they work. Low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Raise nursing salaries across the board by at least $2/hr. Be kind to your staff. It's cheaper to make your staff happy and encourage them to want to stay. Much more expensive to advertise, interview, and train new staff....and then they only stay for a short time. Offer long term employees perks. Loyalty SHOULD have its privileges.

    Pros

    Nice location, shared location with University of South Florida,

    Cons

    Office policies are ridiculous. The leadership is non-visible, in their offices, while the rest of the people sit in these dark cubicles (unless you are working in a research lab, then you have windows). Corporate culture trumps anything else. For example, there used to be water coolers which were removed to cut cost, but coffee machines are still available, as is free coffee.

    Advice to Management

    I've heard over and over how promotions from within are not the norm, but it seems that it depends on who you are working under.

    Pros

    they 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)

    Cons

    this 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 Management

    please remember this a cancer center, the patients need clean rooms and not cleaned with water, but real disinfectant

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Im 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 Management

    Prepare 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.
