Started to feel like the hospital version of the Titanic, so it was time for me to resign.

Former Employee - Ancillary Services in Orlando, FL

I worked at Orlando Health full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

* Steady employment (when they're not eliminating positions)
* Paid time off/Sick pay
* Diversity; interact with coworkers/patients of varied cultures and backgrounds
* Opportunity for advancement in the hierarchy of positions within one's department
* Set hours and opportunity for O/T (again, when they're not eliminating positions)
* Decent cafeteria food at Winnie Palmer hospital

Cons

* Work load & services offered with less employees to do the job
* Constantly short staffed
* Low employee morale
* Differential cuts = no incentive to stay any longer
*** Loss of knowledge base due to experienced employees & "veterans" being laid off :-(
* Patient care IS suffering -and in some cases, the focus is on volume rather than safety
* KRONOS time keeping - requires you to live your live down to the minute otherwise you will acquire a series of "Red Boxes" which can be used to terminate employment. The punch-in/fingerprint scanner created long lines but luckily they have upgraded to badge/swipe & fingerprint
* Ridiculous campus layout & BFE parking garages that don't connect to the building, forcing you to walk in the cold and/or rain. And G-d forbid you clock in one minute late...
* Dirty hospital due to cutting back on housekeeping personnel

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advice to Upper Management/Administration:
* Don't forget that you too can be replaced - just ask Sherrie Sitarik
* Nurses and Ancillary staff can only take so much abuse
* Coining the term "Value Creation" was a condescending, patronizing slap in the face to employees
* Stop blaming medicare cuts and Obamacare - Florida Hospital is is non-profit too and yet they are rapidly expanding
