Pros

Captive audience, where else are they going to go? Lazy folks love it here, no one cares.

Cons

Not able to recruit decent help due to lowest pay scale in healthcare industry.Gets employees no one else will hire.

Advice to Management

You are top heavy with no clue of what really goes on. No wage increases since 2006.

    Pros

    Sign on bonus with no contract to sign to get it, good pay, and five weeks of vacation starting day one!

    Cons

    Decent medical coverage, the college assistance is so-so, and the 401k is to laugh at, they match 50% up to 4% of your pay pre-tax and you are not fully vested for five full years!

    Advice to Management

    Get organized, make decisions based on something that will make the place run better, not just becaue you are board and want to implement useless costly and timely ideas for no real reason other than you might get fired if you don't appear to have a function within the company (for management, not the nurses)

  2. It's a good day to be in prison.

    Pros

    Hours and work load are reasonable. Very interesting population and clinical challenges. Mid level medical providers are adequately supported and encouraged to be independent. Interface with Department of Corrections is impressive given its complexity. General communication from senior management to frontline workers here in Michigan is earnest and prompt.

    Cons

    Very little face time with administration, but for some of us, this is a positive characteristic.

    Advice to Management

    So far, so good.
