    Hours, Staff, Management. It is all very good. The work flow is good, the pace of work is good, I am allowed to use my brain to solve problems. it is all good...

    Cons

    Once the defined pay ceiling is met you are stalled there for years. the job is well defined and structured. There is stress but it is not over the top or too much.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing a nice job

    Pros

    Fair and consistent management, tuition reimbursement, good pay, good benefits, 401k match, nice perks for hospital week and other holidays.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover due to so many competitive health care providers in a small area.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of meetings with lots of upper level team members often lead to nothing. Lessen the meetings and let the directors be on the floor with the staff and patients for better quality care and more respect.

    Great teams, qualified people, good work environment.

    Plenty of work but justifying resources seems to be an up hill battle. Still maturing as a company often a lot of unnecessary paper work.
