    Pros

    Still has good benefit package. Can feel you are doing Important work in community. Nationally recognized hospital, can be proud of workplace.

    Cons

    Extreme budget shortfall--constant reductions of staff and increase of work pressure and responsibilities for remaining staff. Unstable management--frequent changes of management people and of goal focus as hospital separates from County management. Poor moral in almost all departments.

    Advice to Management

    Most employees take pride in their jobs and are aware of extreme budget pressures. But they can not be stretched beyond a certain point--many departments are already running only by allowing massive overtime and running employees at burn-out level.

    Pros

    Tireless care for the poor, indigent and most needy sector. Amazing programs with impact on the entire region including disaster preparedness, ER docs that risk their lives saving patients in the field, traumatic brain injury program that tries to prevent injuries, houses the poison center for the state

    Cons

    Not enough resources to support all the needed programs

    Advice to Management

    relentlessly lobby the public on the need for universal access to care. Those fighting Obamacare include insurance companies and those that profit from the status quo.
