    I worked at Bristol Hospital full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, always busy... The staff was great to work with. The days passed very quickly and there was always a lunch or breakfast scheduled with a pharmaceutical rep, which meant never having to worry about packing meals.

    Cons

    There was work overload at times and the hours changed too frequently.

    They consistently hire people to direct my dept who have no knowledge base of how the dept should be run.

    Pros

    The benefits aren't too bad compared to other places I've heard about. Most people are friendly toward one another. We've made great strides in the last few years as far as improvements in the building structure, new equipment, etc.

    Cons

    The technicians in my dept. are grossly underpaid considering the amount of responsibility that is thrust upon us on a daily basis. The 2% increases you may see during your yearly eval is a slap in the face. We are continually denied market adjustments because supposedly we are "right where we're supposed to be" My dept techs need to be reevaluated but no one who can, will take the steps needed for that to happen. The HR dept seems clueless when it comes to hiring people who are qualified for jobs unless its for admininstration positions. There have been countless great people who have left BH for better treatment and compensation. Never have I heard once from any of these people that BH tried to talk them out of it, or did anything to keep them onboard. It's a shame. At BH, we're a dime a dozen. The mentality is, if you don't like it here, there's the door. There are plenty of other people waiting for your job. I think we deserve better than that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly appreciate all the depts that make this place run and who keep the customers coming back to our hospital. The bits in the newsline from Kurt are nice, but sometimes they sound fake. Like it's just something he HAS to say. Please, please, please...believe it or not, the little people run this hospital, it's not always the big shots in the offices. Make your dept heads be AWARE of what's going on in their respective depts........don't push things under the rug, address what needs to be addressed and then take action to remedy any problems. If people are unhappy in their depts or with each other, it shows on their faces when that patient comes thru the door......Take a look at people congregating in the hallways.....they are employees complaining to each other.
