    Pros

    More time off than you can possibly use. Great family environment. They really try hard to create and excellent culture.

    Cons

    HR IS A JOKE. Unions are ruining this place. There is a major discrepancy in the way employees are treated based on job class.

    Advice to Management

    Help create equality amongst bargaining and non-bargaining

  6. If micromanagement, phony upper management and a sub-par hospital is your thing, this place is perfect

    Pros

    The only perk is the employee gym.

    Cons

    In order to be successful here, you must drink the kool aid and be a lemming. If you have any ideas outside of the box of upper management, you will not succeed here. Not only that, the hospital environment is very dirty. I personally saw some of the filthiest things in this hospital I've ever seen.

    Advice to Management

    Open up your tiny little minds.

  7. There is no organization in this organization

    Don't allow staffing levels to be so dismal that you can't keep your employees
