I have been working at Community Health Systems as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

Working at the corporate office is laid back and not stressful at all. They are very understanding when you need to take off.

Cons

They change supervisors too often. It seems they're always moving people around.

    Pros

    wonderful co-workers. very tolerant of chaos

    Cons

    mass disorganization. Possibly due to growth, but never staffed, frequently unsafe situations for patients. No push for expanding education. No reimbursement for education. Top management entirely to corporate oriented. They are not looking at the needs of the patient. Ratings are poor due to poor organization and management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what staff is telling you. Stop defending corporate decisions when you know it is not in the interest of the patient. It seems the company is about the bottom dollar. Frequently short staffed, but that is ok as long as your paper work says you have carried out your duties. We are taking care of patients here, not building car parts. We can not possibly satisfy our patients if we do not have the time or equipment to take care of the needs of our customers.

    Pros

    Staff is amazing. The teamwork and excellent, knowledgeable staff is the only reason why I haven't left yet... Soon it won't be enough though. Tuition assistance.

    Cons

    Management cares only about the bottom dollar. Patient safety is constantly at risk to meet budget. Management uses bullying to make their point. Employees aren't allowed to voice their opinions. Its their way or the highway. Management flat out states that we are all replaceable. Pay is equal to other hospitals, but provides no incentive for continuing education. I was hired with my ADN and obtained my MSN while being employed; I was not given any pay difference for this degree advancement. I still make ADN pay. Doesn't celebrate Nurses' Week. Zero appreciation for staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up Management! You are loosing valuable employees and expertise that can't be replaced with inexperienced new graduate nurses. There needs to be a balance of expertise and new nurses to make the hospital safe and valued among patients and their families. Bullying is not the answer to creating lasting change. Maybe you should part-take in a leadership course.
