I worked at Greenville Hospital System full-time (less than a year)

Pros

People are very welcoming and genuine. The company seems to value diversity and healthy living (which is nice, since it is a hospital). PTO very generous, and salary was very competitive (if you have the right degrees, certifications, etc.)

Cons

Information Systems group is a mess. They recently layed-off 30 people, so everyone is constantly watching their back, and no one shares knowledge (so that they will maintain their value). A number of directors and high-level IS leaders were brought in from a Florida hospital system, where they had previously been dismissed. They are trying to make GHS like Health First in Florida, instead of seizing on the positive elements that already exist in the company today. No real processes and no consistency in how to get things done from one day to another. IS group is easily 10-15 years behind the times in technology as well as process.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't sell people on what you wish the company would be - tell them what is it so that it's not a shock when they arrive and immediately want to get out.

    I worked at Greenville Hospital System

    Pros

    GHS is a teaching hospital and there is always room for growth.

    Cons

    Nurses do not work as a team with Patient Care Technicians and there should never be one Patient Care Technician assigned to 31-32 patients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should constantly visit the units on all shifts and see who is really doing all the work and recognize those who do all the work..

    I have been working at Greenville Hospital System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I am well compensated for the work I do, my managers and coworkers are capable of completing tasks assigned to them and are very aware of the environment and needs of the persons we are providing care to, and the atmosphere is an atmosphere of safety and client focused care

    Cons

    It would be a much better place if there were more opportunities for growth. I would also appreciate more support staff in some areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management would benefit from spending more time in the various locations. It is understandable that GMMC is the "hub" of services, but those in outlying facilities feel that they are often overlooked
