    Pros

    Benefits, nice people, clean, great resume builder.

    Cons

    It's a Doctor's hospital, RN's aren't always happy here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better. You're hiring new grads, training them, then they are leaving with your training to go to Metro and UH to make more money. If you want to keep the nurses you invested in, keep investing in them!

    I worked at Cleveland Clinic

    Pros

    State of the art facility with great doctors and nurses. Resources are readily available. EPIC charting system is organized and well utilized at CCF.

    Cons

    Pay for RNs is nothing to brag about- they only offer $1 shift differential for nights and nothing for weekends. Nurses have to wear all white scrubs.

    Pros

    Good people, state of the art equipment, tuition reimbursement, healthy work environment, wonderful benefits, discount on health insurance for participating in healthy choice programs

    Cons

    Depending on the position, not a lot of room for advancement. Unfortunately pay scales are lower than surrounding facilities. Raises are only received once a year and are usually no more than 3%

    I worked at Cleveland Clinic

    Pros

    The Cleveland Clinic was the best place I ever worked in terms of my professional development. I worked there for more than a decade and felt my contributions were appreciated. They offered a generous tuition reimbursement that I took advantage of to gain an advanced degree. Some employees and managers had a very good head for business.

    Cons

    The Clinic is going through a bad patch. Good employees are being let go to save money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice for management. They will do what they will do to stay ahead of the game financially. At least they offered decent severance packages to help soften the blow.
