    I have been working at Canton-Potsdam Hospital

    Pros

    My boss is awesome
    Can take time off when needed
    Flexible
    Great equipment

    Cons

    The people that run the hospital make ill informed decisions and don't listen to reason. They don't follow the principles of common sense and don't listen to the people that do the real work.

    I worked at Canton-Potsdam Hospital part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Responsive administration. Forward thinking. Worked at addressing patient issues the best way they could given the financial issues that they faced in a largely rural area. Nurses were unionized. Improved the fairness of treatment of RN and aides.

    Cons

    Health care workers were unionized. Seniority rules sometimes made it hard to hire the best person for the job.

    I worked at Canton-Potsdam Hospital part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nurses work together usually pretty well, patients seemed pretty well taken care of, nurses acted as advocates.

    Cons

    The collaboration nurse to doctor just wasn't there with many of them. Didn't offer tuition help to further education, pay is far lower than other areas... so I left. I don't know what they've done recently. I ACTUALLY had a doctor THROW a chart at me once. NO respect for ancillary staff FYI!! just as a warning!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From when I worked there, give more opportunities for educational advancement (IE tuition payment) as a perk for employement.
