Pros

There are a few outstanding employees. The hospital's reputation.

Cons

Many employes are slackers, bullies, or sluggishly preparing for retirement.

Bully coworkers and managers. Don't be fooled by the bullies who cloak themselves with a cross, scripture, and in church attendance. They can be surprisingly cruel.

Many have worked here for 25+ years and aren't interested in considering other approaches. Close-minded. They haven't worked anywhere else to see other approaches used.

Closed to outsiders. If you aren't from here, don't look like them, dress like them, talk like them, or eat like them, you are viewed negatively.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be fair. Get out on the front lines periodically to see how work really gets done. Don't waste time asking for suggestions for improvement if you don't plan to do anything with it.

    I worked at Hendrick Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy to get in. Hours are decent.

    Cons

    Unless you know someone you will never advance in this hospital. It's about who you know and not what you know. Politics play a huge part in this job. Interviewing for advancement doesn't mean a thing unless you know someone. If they "like" you, you're in. If not, you're screwed.

    The pay is also the worse when it comes to the medical field. They spend so much money on the hospital but yet, cut back overtime opportunities, pay, raises and bonuses. Short staffed, constant call-ins and hiring the wrong kind of people make this a difficult environment to work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to ask for opinions then take them into consideration. Train your employees well so they feel comfortable working. Throwing people out there isn't going to benefit the patients or the hospital. Your patients are people not a number. This hospital has fallen far from the family environment. Greed has taken over and this is why people look down at this hospital.
