    Pros

    Competitive wage, beautiful facilities, great benefits. Able to schedule self. Floor managers accessible.

    Cons

    Every other weekend commitment and not a lot of opportunity for day positions.

    Advice to Management

    Try to spread evenly the weekend commitment, versus having some every 4-5 weekends and others every other.

    Pros

    Fantastic work environment
    Growing organization
    Community impact
    Leadership understands current healthcare landscape and is making excellent decisions.
    Incredible amount of opportunities

    Cons

    While there aren't very many cons about this organization, I would say that while there are tons of opportunities to grow, it can be hard to make transitions once in the hospital.

    Advice to Management

    The right tools are in place to grow from within, but those tools don't seem to be utilized the way they could be. There is a lot of great talent already inside the organization.

    Pros

    Supervisor is responsive to any issues that arise with clients. Vacation time is available to take. Working independently is a plus.

    Cons

    Initial training is lacking. Curriculum needs to be updated. Replacement coverage is difficult to obtain. Office space is needed. EHR needs to be instituted asap
