    I have been working at Broward Health full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment overall and diverse group of co workers.

    Cons

    In the ICU some of the senior nurses are mean and hostile towards new nurses at Broward Health General . The managers let them get away with rude unprofessional behavior on the day shift, it was the worst experience of my career training there in 2007. After you make it through orientation and become an expert you realize that those nurses behave that way because they are afraid of new nurses of diverse backgrounds outshining them in clinical practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All managers should hold Master's degrees and behave in a professional manner at all times.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are average for area

    Cons

    Poor administration guiding a sinking ship! A large majority are not kept updated on best practices and latest healthcare standards . Management clueless or unconcerned with actions of employees. Large population of foreign nurses from other countries, not properly trained to American level of healthcare, even if they have obtained a licenses. Saw things I wish I could forget in care of patients!

    Pros

    Working with premature infants and their families.

    Cons

    Management in the NICU and the hospital does not care a bit about their employees in the unit. Huge turnover where they are always hiring young, inexperienced nurses due to budget cuts. The unit is a disgusting mess, with old equipment and not enough cleaning staff. 5 patients per nurse has become a norm in there which is a hug safety issue. Lots of gossiping between the nurses and employees are continuously dissatisfied which makes for a terrible work environment

    Pros

    Whay can i say about this employer? The halls are motly clean the the walls are mostly yellow. Thete are hundreds of name less faces the roam the halls on weekdays and ghost crews the work on weekends and nights.

    Cons

    A promise of every oyher weekends was often said, yet in reality, most every person's schedule can be altered the day before. Gym membership is not needed as the travel from ER to the Cafeteria seems like half a mile hike.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actual dollar amount raise instead of abstract values of 2 or 3 percent.
