    Hey, it's a job!

    ProsPublic hospital serving the community.
    Adequate training provided for clinical staff. Next to non for non-clinical.

    ConsCompensation is very low and non competitive for similar jobs in the area.
    The Hospital is money driven and as a result, there is no money put back into employees for appreciation, team building, salaries, etc.
    Time off bucket (PTO) is HORRIBLE. Especially when your Director FORCES you to take off days during low census in order to be under budget. You lose time for what you truly need... like a vacation.
    If you do not have the time to have off, you will go unpaid. Even if you are salaried. There is no negative PTO, either you have the time or you don't.
    Because this is a Union hospital, some employees can act however they like and there is little that can be done about them... it takes a lot of time to hire someone and even longer to get rid of them, so you just need to learn to go with the flow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork on a culture that makes employees feel appreciated across the board. Not giving them a candy bar for completing a survey. Instead of insulting employees with a taxed $30 gift card during the holidays, give them a decent raise when the time comes to show you appreciate them. $.05-$.15 is NOT a raise. Work towards having a better work/life balance and understand that people usually have families to take care of and as such should be fairly compensated or you will continue to lose employees to other hospitals who will.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
