Pros

Benefits are good and even if you're not in a union, you get very fair treatment as if you were. Not micro-managed and relatively casual atmosphere (corporate is of course different from hospitals). Pretty good about pouring money back into the company and investing in technology. In a growing field.

Cons

Tons of meetings, many moving parts and fierce "region" loyalty. Like getting an aircraft carrier to change course at times. Once hired, pay moves at glacial pace year-to-year.

Advice to Management

Lean on regions to work together and get in sync. Pour even more money into technology. Acquire other hospitals and grow the business.

    Pros

    The network in place to make lateral career moves as well as advancement is excellent because postings are vigilantly updated. The options for nurses are extremely diverse and nurses have an enormous potential for career growth and skill development.

    Cons

    The stress on personnel can be high due to patient demand. This seems to be a chronic problem. In my experience, the management does not have a positive effect on the work environment, and the affection of nurses for exceptional supervisors doesn't seem to be shared by the administration. The nationwide organization is so big that change in policy or procedure is more difficult than changing the course of the Queen Mary.

    Advice to Management

    The organization could counter the suppressive effect of is corporate girth by encouraging out-of-the-box solutions and more individual discretion of the immediate supervisors. Instead of encouraging homogeneity with the "employee of the month", how about posting the "idea of the month".
