Pros

you work with a great group of individuals and there is a genuine family atmosphere in many of the patient care units.

Cons

The hourly rate when compared to other hospitals on the north-side is lacking. It also sounds like the attendance and tardiness policy is continually changing so some staff are complaining that its impossible to figure out where you stand if you need to take an emergency day off.

Advice to Management

How about a real cafeteria?

    Pros

    - Great, friendly people across the board with few exception - Solid focus on healing and patient safety - Nice work environment. Lots of recent renovations and access to Galter Life Center and the new garden is a valuable benefit. New building looks nice (though I wonder how we can pay for that while squeezing employees) - Decent benefit package - Great support for employee education through tuition reimbursement - Nice connection to surrounding neighborhoods and local businesses - Nurse-Midwife group and childbirth program is phenomenal

    Cons

    - Weak executive team. Despite HR-driven attempts to connect with staff, executive team is very removed from the day-to-day of employees. Very little respect is given to low-level and mid-level staff. - Select employees who are unqualified for management positions are consistently promoted and it is very difficult to tell what exactly (if anything) they are contributing to the organization. This is not surprising, as it seems they have little or no mentorship or management in their roles. - Compensation leaves much to be desired. - All employees seem to be doing the work of three as vacant positions are absorbed

    Advice to Management

    Yes, the economy is terrible, but stop hiding behind that fact and start adequately rewarding good employees and medical staff based on their performance. You have a very nice work environment with lots of great potential for patients and patients -- but unless things change internally, excellent, deserving employees will continue to leave this organization.
