I have been working at Emory Healthcare

Pros

One of the most deversity acceptable organizations in the south. You can see people from different background happily working here.

Cons

Some people that have been working here forever is quite hard to communicate. Some of them are rather against seeing changes ocurring in the system.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More focus is needed on the enhancement of the bond among employees. I am looking forward to seeing more oppotunities provided to employees for internal career advancement.

    I worked at Emory Healthcare

    Pros

    Originally, compensation was competitive, and conditions reasonable. There was commitment to professional development and work/life balances. Employees and their views seemed to be valued.

    Cons

    Conditions deteriorated as Emory embraced cost containment and marketing strategies that negatively impacted employees. Professional development is not as well supported as formerly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not alienate staff, especially difficult to replace technicians and professionals, with false economies.

    Pros

    Good benefits (although they got rid of the 80% tuition reimbursement). Flexible hours. Many units have weekend staff so you don't have to work the weekends unless the weekend staff want a planned vacation. Most of the patient charting is done on the computer.

    Cons

    If you have a manager/director who likes to play favorites, leave the unit immediately. There are many other nursing units to work at within Emory so keep looking! Proposal for a change in a process or work flow is only accepted/ tolerated/ tried if it comes from someone in management. If a proposal comes from a floor nurse, it gets ignored. Never go to HR or your manager's boss about an issue you've with your manager/nursing director. They will ALWAYS say that YOU are the problem even if you have 20 other nurses saying they have the same issues with the manager/director.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't blame the nurses for the ALL of the negative patient satisfaction scores. Look at the whole picture. Nurses can only work with the resources, equipment, and time that they have and unfortunately, a unit's attitude is always the same as the one in charge. If you keep getting complaints from patients that say nurses don't seem to care enough, maybe the nurses are not happy with their work environment. Find out the source of that dissatisfaction and fix it. Usually, the dissatisfaction has to do with the way the nurses are being treated. If the director is not a good leader and doesn't show that they value the work the nurses do, then what do you think the nurses attitude will be like? Hold the directors accountable if their units are not performing as well as you expect and change their positions if they don't improve their units. Make them take management classes throughout the year.
