Great CEO, Good hours, Bad pay,

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

I worked at Broward Health full-time for less than a year

ProsA few of the people I worked with were great! However, the department I worked in was small, so there was a lot of drama between people. Honestly, it was a job. That's pretty much the only pro.

ConsTERRIBLE PAY! Sometimes, you can feel unappreciated by senior management.

Advice to Senior ManagementBETTER PAY!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

The worst career experience of my life

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

I worked at Broward Health full-time for more than 10 years

ProsInteresting work, opportunities to meet many people. My job in itself was great. Most of the employees are dedicated and true professionals. I found the medical/healthcare personnel not only highly qualified but also empathetic to the patients. There is a real sense of caring.

ConsElite upper management, promotions given to that management but not to others, no real interest in the common employee, poor HR dept., political, demoralizing atmosphere despite the commitment of its employees to the organization. Problem with micro-management and control. Secret surveys given to staff to rate their manager. Results were discussed, but little was ever changed.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey listen and do nothing. So what's the point?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Zero accountability at all levels

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

I have been working at Broward Health full-time

ProsMedical plans
Struggling to think of anything else...

ConsIncluding holidays in accrued PL time off
Vision coverage
Archaic management philosophy - very punitive atmosphere
Very siloed approach - hospitals and deparments don't share information - see each other as rivals instead of partners

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't expect employees to live the values and provide exceptional service when you don't practice and model this yourselves. Have and convey a vision for the organization as a whole. To the CEO - come down from your tower and actually speak to your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
