    I have had an overall pleasant experience on the job at the midcity location.

    I have been working at Brgmc part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the staff at the midcity campus are what makes working at brgmc an enjoyable experience. There is usually always a need for employee's. You can have fun outside of work with co-workers and come back to work and be professional.

    Cons

    The hospital suffers financially and the ER was on the verge of closing. The pay isn't all that great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved with employee's. Pay your techs more.

    Pros

    Awesome coworkers and some doctors.

    Cons

    Having to drive out of the way to cover another unit on the other side of town. Mediocre unit management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved on your units and with your employees.

    Pros

    Great direct management . Peer employees are very personable and great to work with. Benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Directors are out of touch and not looking out for the employees as a whole. No work-life balance in the department I worked in. New system is not easy to use.

    The culture of this hospital was totally backwards.

    Very negative environment

    Pros

    Good health insurance, nice coffee shop inside

    Cons

    Negative environment, poor management, culture of patient pleasing. Even to the point of being ridiculous. This hospital does not treat their nurses well at all.
    Worst paying hospital in baton rouge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually be present on the unit you manage. To correct the appalling behavior of employees

    I have been working at Brgmc full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love my coworkers. We're a family. We help and look out for one another. When one is struggling to keep up, others do whatever they can to help lighten the load.

    Cons

    My particular experience with current management has been cordial at best. I don't feel like my current manager is an advocate for nurses. And this manager has less clinical experience than the nurses she/he supervises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show your nurses genuine appreciation. Support your nurses with adequate staffing. And if your unit is short and no nurse can be found, help your unit by offering your skills. Also, when there is a dispute, show respect for your nurses by hearing both sides neutrally.

    Pros

    Great people to work with from all walks of life. Has many employee assistance programs. Management is always striving to improve things.

    Cons

    Unfortuantely I cannot speak on the cons. I only left because my husband was transferred to a different state. If we ever come back, this is where I will be.

    Pros

    At times good camaraderie and teamwork within the unit

    Cons

    Very poor base pay for nursing, middle of the road benefits, very little reason to stay with this company, nursing is often chronically understaffed, mid and upper management has very poor vision and foresight when making crucial decisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This hospital is good but not great. You'll notice there aren't many reviews from employees here, which kind-of sums up the type of people that work there. Decent folks who come to work to get their job done, and that's it. There aren't a lot of overachievers or stand-outs; that isn't the culture here. This sums up what the hospital really wants: not much feedback, we'll tell you what to do, when to do it, and you won't complain because you don't care that much. BRG recently implemented a new hospital wide computer system that was and is inadequate for some departments. I don't think anyone with departmental knowledge was even invited to the table before said software was purchased to give feedback to those to whom it mattered. (And if they did, that feedback either was disregarded or ignored.) It took a long time, relatively speaking, for that message to be heard at the levels it needed to in order for more change to occur. If a job is just a job to you, this is the place to go. You can try to make a difference at BRG, but good luck with that.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. You learn a lot from all the different hats you have to wear. Health benefits are great. They're always opening new departments or people are moving around so you have plenty of upward mobility.

    Cons

    Very stressful environment, people's lives are on the line. The office complex you work out of is a little cheap. Not the highest paying place to work in the area. Project workflows tend to be decided entirely by upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some proper project management criteria that involved all the management staff and project managers would be idea for determining the health of a project.
