Pros

Fantastic coworkers, very knowledgable & willing to help.

Cons

Completely unreasonable expectations from upper management. Focus is always on what was NOT done, with no acknowledgement of any accomplishments, do not expect any pats on the back for a job well done. Consistent 12-15 hr workdays are the norm. Upper management does not seem to fully comprehend the demands/ expectations that are so nonchalantly handed out as no additional compensation is available, and all work is still to be maintained within the mythical "40 hr work week".

Advice to Management

Your employees do still have lives outside of their jobs. As much hard, exhausting, never ending work that is put in during the week, show more appreciation, be more understanding, and recognize your employees for what they are worth.

    Pros

    2% cost of living increase

    Cons

    favoritism. Admin could care less about addressing huge problem of turnover. CNO says "It's for the best" No consistency. A new grad can go right in ICU but a seasoned RN of 15 yrs must apply and take critical care class. Nurses go home in tears. Turnover in Med/Surg over 50%. All new grads. This hospital has not retained the seasoned staff. Doctors leaving. Admin leaving. Nurses leaving. Money is what is most valued. Losing several as they are not competetive. Top 100 but at what expense. This place is nuts! MUCH RETALIATION!!

    Advice to Management

    Replace top 3. They do not act at all on issues effecting staff for many years. Lip service running rampant. Turnover is everyone but 5 on Med/Surg over last few years. ER just as bad and ICU. Can't keep a director in ER. two left in just a few months.
