    Pros

    Awesome acute care experience. Great reputation with this hospital. Some good days and good co-workers.

    Cons

    Favoritism, politics but that's everywhere. The nurse to patient ratio becoming unsafe.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the nurses and the work, not what a bug in your ear tells you just because you like that certain bug.

    Pros

    They offer flexible scheduling. They also offer really great benefits. The training was very thorough and well though out. I would highly recommend working here.

    Cons

    After thinking about what I could possibly list as a negative, I was unable to think of anything. I would highly recommend working here.

    Pros

    This is a well located hospital which supports a diverse community of Abington.

    Cons

    After 3 years, there remains virtually no diversity amongst the professional staff at this hospital accept for housekeeping and maintenance of course. Throughout the hospital, i have not met one person of color in a management role. Nurses are all white except for a very small few. There are no initiatives to promote a spirit of inclusion just a nice title for people about diversity. Considering the locale, this is unfortunate. Considering the bad publicity this hospital received a few years back i was surprised to see that nothing has changed. It seems that some employees are afraid of losing their jobs if they say anything. The most diverse group of people you will see at Abington is on their website.

    Advice to Management

    Try a spirit of inclusion. Make sure that your new employees as well as the students you hire from your nursing school reflects the clientele that you serve.

    Pros

    Good benefits-medical, dental, and vision, yearly 'cost of living raise', opportunity for advancement or to move to other departments, helpful colleagues,

    Cons

    high stress for not enough pay, difficult to get needed time off, people in department are 'clique-y' making it uncomfortable to work at times, recommend the company, just not the department.

    Advice to Management

    be more open to suggestions

    Pros

    If you have a good supervisor like I do, working here is tolerable. My supervisor is very liberal with scheduling and . Will always help you out if an emergency arises.

    Cons

    Healthcare benefits are getting lower and lower, upper management can be very deceiving, more Worried about the almighty dollar than patient care.

    Advice to Management

    A good employer is give and take, not just take, take, take. If you want your employees to be happy so they will treat their patients with happy faces, listen to your employees and actually make an attempt to try their ideas. Also, when an employee has an idea, acknowledge the employee instead of raking credit for th he idea.
