    Pros

    Friendly team members, flexisble hours

    Cons

    Poor pay per hour and salary... Management sucks and don't have one clue about the job they are hired to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire within for management positions, they have knowledge and experience to do the JOB.. People on the outside have no knowledge and minimal experience. Just because they hold and flash a degree around doesn't mean they are qualified to do the JOB ... Wake up EMORY HEALTHCARE

    Emory formed a joint venture with Saint Joseph's Hospital which changed the organization tremendously.

    Current Employee - Administrative Assistant in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Emory Healthcare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Emory is like most large organizations...... too big with too many processes to go through to get anything done in a timely manner. The benefits are good... tuition assistance and 401k cannot be ignored plus you have a wide selection to some of the best healthcare in the nation. The CEO is great and has vision but need to reign in Saint Joseph's old way of doing things.

    Cons

    This joint venture placed a lot of drain on Emory because most of the senior management that were kept in place at Saint Joseph's cannot adapt to the Emory model. I predict a large layoff just around the corner. There are lots of career opportunities but is difficult to move around.... both horizontal and vertical. It takes too long to even get responses on job submittals.

    Current Employee - Respiratory Therapist in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Emory Healthcare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, I've made some really good friends here.
    Senior Leadership has a strong desire to make this a top Healthcare organization.
    Doctors and nurses work well together, everyone is mostly respectfull
    The paid benefits are very good

    Cons

    Pay is lower than surrounding hospitals
    To many un-needed therapies are ordered and it can be difficult to get them changed, especially when patients are not in the ICU. This is because doctors are difficult to reach when their patients are no longer critical.
    There are vast differences in the culture around the different hospitals in the system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve tranparency
    Improve the departmental/unit leadership.

    I have been working at Emory Healthcare full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I love my coworkers. and have enjoyed my time at Emory for the most part.

    Cons

    Spine Center's current administration has demoralized the entire staff. There has been more turnover in the past 3 years than in my memory of previous years. Management will not acknowledge we have a life and family commitments outside of work. Dept of Orthopedics Administrator has placed a target on the back of all long term employees. A real shame one person can disassemble a premier department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake up the organization starting at the top

    Pros

    Great benefits; fair pay; job can be very stressful at time

    Cons

    Could improve on leadership and listening to the employees; job can be very stressful at time; seems as if we are moving from patient bedside care to focusing more on papers, double charting; have to push heavy WOW computers around to scan medications (there are more convenient and smaller ones out there); cafeteria food could be improved

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees; more get togethers for the staff
