    I worked at BayCare Health System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Managers were well trained for working with employees and inspiring them to be leaders. I was able to tell my manager my goals and she worked on guiding me to them. I loved getting my evaluation. I got to hear what people said about me and it reinforced my positive behaviors.

    Cons

    Horrible healthcare. I didn't go to the ED for chest pains because our insurance didn't cover enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better healthcare.

    As far as hospitals go, these are probably one of the better ones.

    Pros

    Get a pay raise every year, discounted tickets to events, yearly bonus for all employees

    Cons

    As with all hospitals, it is a number crunch from upper management. Staffing is never optimal and we are forced to do more with less all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would love to see the number crunchers do our job out on the floor with the staffing that they think is acceptable.

    Communication could be more timely and not depend on emails so much.

    Even though we have email, please communicate to your teams more.

    Pros

    The health system is strong

    Cons

    The IT Shop is a huge disaster. There is total lack of leadership integrity which is supported by BayCare leadership. Having plenty of free golf games T ? Do your employees feel the same way they did about you in South Carolina, Texas and Central Florida? Do you leave a wide path of destruction ?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new leadership

    I worked at BayCare Health System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many locations, able to transfer to another department or location within 6 months of employment, good overall benefits, many opportunities for advancement for direct patient care staff.

    Cons

    In many cases, although not part of the company's values, your career growth and future will depend on your direct manager and their specific department and career goals for themselves. One person has the power to either make or break you, loyalty and experience will not always get you where you want to go. This is still a "good-ol-boy" type environment in some departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes, when a company attempts to grow their brand rapidly in many different directions at one time, in order to be competitive with market changes, they lose-site of the communities and people they serve, both internally and externally.

    Great place to get healthcare IT experience, not a lot of opportunity to move up.

    Pros

    Access to cutting edge technology, lots of opportunities to train and learn different systems. The organization as a whole works hard to treat employees with dignity and respect.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity to move upward, although the state that they "promote from within", I haven't seen it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When hiring for supervisory and management positions, maybe you should take a look at the people on your teams that have the experience and start there. Bringing in outsiders, without giving those already inside with more than enough experience, is not always a good thing.
