    Pros

    Nice co workers and a great educational place to work. Most are good at seeing the positive you do instead of the negative.

    Cons

    Changes in resent management have made communication a problem and takes to long to get things worked out when there is an issue.

    Advice to Management

    If you break it fix it

    Pros

    One of the best hospitals to go if you are sick.

    Cons

    They are now for profit and don't treat employees very well. Health insurance is very expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees your appreciation and they will be willing to go above and beyond.

    Pros

    Well rounded facility and opportunities to gain skills

    Cons

    Evasive about their 401K plan and matching (or lack thereof) upon hiring. Upon multiple requests for this info I was told by HR I would receive info in mail. Never received. No benefits discussion as part of orientation. Shows lack of pride in their organization. There are extensive "cliques" within this organization. If the staff accepts you into their clique then you should do fine. If not, there is extreme, unjustified criticism, manufactured exageration of circumstances and degrading accusations. If the staff doesn't accept you, they will find any and all ways of preventing you from learning and painting you as a poor performer, regardless of your proven career track record. Certain management is too close knit with staff to remain objective. Particular departments are extremely non-diverse. Not that this is normally an issue or an indication of how a facility is run but my work environment consisted of approximately 95 percent white women mostly in their 20's and 30's and most tied to a friendship clique. Preceptor spending the majority of her time texting on her phone. Being a male nurse in this facility was extremely difficult. I have never had an issue with coworkers in any of my prior careers including nursing. Be careful, if they don't accept you and you are counting on learning and gaining experience from them you will have a very difficult time. Overall hostile and disrespectful work environment. Quit on the spot after one month.

    Advice to Management

    Screen and train preceptors. Enforce cell phone at work policy. Instruct managers to be observant in the training process. Be upfront about your benefits package in detail.

    Pros

    Co-workers work together as a team.

    Cons

    Pay, benefits. The company has been bought out twice since I started. CHS which is the largest hospital chain in the US is the new owner. Corporate greed is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Take a long hard look at yourself, and try to see employees and patients as people and not a dollar sign.

    Pros

    All staff are team players

    Cons

    Quality of nursing care varies from excellent to poor. High MRSA rate.

    Advice to Management

    Be more diligent in having all staff adhere to standard precautions, including Dr's and taking isolation precautions seriously!

    Pros

    Great trauma program, well known and respected hospital from public perspective. Approachable staff and physicians for the most part. Great interdisciplinary rounds in the intensive care units.

    Cons

    Difficult to contact physicians as there are not lot of hospital employed MD's, nursing gets stuck in the middle of pharmacy/MD problems because of that problem. Benefits deteriorated since buy-out by HMA. Most departments are also understaffed leading to employee dissatisfaction due to being overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Consider increasing raises to match competitors. Lots of turnover because of non-competitive salaries.
