    I have been working at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis

    Pros

    New hospital with new electronic medical record system implemented September 2014. Excellent leadership throughout organization. Great place to work.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is more concern towards reacting than listening to senior leadership. Will protect the employee and the about staff is the one always accused. HR needs to listen more than reacting as well.

    I have been working at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis

    Pros

    The benefits are decent. Once a month in the summer there is a farmer's market on campus.

    Cons

    Easy to top out in salary. Too many meetings that do not seem to ever result in any changes v

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the people you hire. The people in the trenches have valuable information. Listen to what they say.

    I worked at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Baptist has undergone a massive overhaul in the way they manage healthcare for their patients over the past few years. In a tough time for hospitals given ever decreasing payouts from insurance they have managed to make it through a major software and inventory system change.

    Cons

    Employee satisfaction is fairly low most times and it often seems like major decisions are made without much input from employees, or at the very least without much beta testing to see if ideas can be made functional without a hindrance to patient care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Certain departments seem overworked and understaffed. Rewarding employees for their extra burdens rather than implementing new systems or ideas foster a greater sense of improvement.

    I worked at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are some things that are good about Baptist such as the friendly work environment, the company values, and the clientele.

    Cons

    The largest challenge was the inconsistency in the preceptor training. I had one preceptor that word weekend days. Then my next preceptor worked weekday nights. Then my preceptor switched to weekdays and weekend days depending on her ex husband's schedule. I received no consistency when we switched back to days because she was then "floating" which means we did not ever have the same patient back to back so I could see no progress in their health.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One thing that is critical to a new RN is consistency. Also, it is important to look at one's situation and take into account the reason a person could not show up for work one day. My mother lost consciousness for 10 minutes, I had to rush her to the hospital, and stay with her while they are running these tests, all after no sleep for 24 hours due to working all night long at Baptist Memphis. I immediately get fired because of a family emergency??

    Pros

    Good Insurance and other Benefits

    Cons

    Co-workers, Human Resources was a joke, 3 weeks and no badge and never in office. Never updated info in system from last time I worked at Baptist in another state. Promised set schedule but never got one. A lot of managers but not a lot of things getting done. Secretary throwing around slurs and bad mouthing nurses. Bad environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff needs better training and your hospital needs to better value employees. Young inexperienced hr workers getting paid more than unit secretaries with degree and 15 years medical experience?
