Pros

Great benefits (not as good recently though, I heard) and flexible working conditions. The people that work there are pretty great, mostly - friendly and have good senses of humor. Plus, you always feel like you're contributing to society and it's hard to be in a bad mood around the kids.

Cons

If you are a non-clinical person, you are at the lowest tier of the totem pole and they will give you as much (usually really low-level) work as you will take on. Forget reaching your full potential - there's really limited opportunity for us folks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Utilize all of your employees to their full potential, try to be more organized and efficient.

    Pros

    Many people have been working 20+ years here for a reason. The pay is great, and the benefits are better than what you would see in 80% of the companies out there.

    Cons

    Communication about future plans could be better. Most information regarding major changes seems to trickle from employee to employee based on what their managers told them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We know you are committed to the cause, but it would be helpful if employees had more direction on the really important issues that the hospital is facing.
