Pros

The pay, benefits, and working a desirable schedule (i.e, posted in advance, consistent, conscious of work/life balance) are all excellent.

Cons

It seems that there might be a bit of red tape within this organization - a bit formal and stiff or excessive.

    Pros

    I worked here as an undergrad and was hired on as a full-time employee after graduation. It is a great job for what it is. The pay is reasonable right out of school. The benefits are standard since you work for the state. Vacation, sick leave, and personal time are awesome! You get a lot of time and all the vacation rolls over. HR always seems to want to help and generally people are nice and helpful.

    Cons

    You are part of a very, very large institution, so you have to be your own advocate if you are in need of anything. The office culture depends on what department and division you work in. The first division I worked in felt like a big family and the second one felt like a bunch of middle-school cliques.

    Pros

    Schedule - Typically five 8hr shifts, Mon-Fri, Weekend call every other month, Weekday call once per week.
    Tuition Reimbursement at 100% if you are .6FTE or higher (Will change in June 2014)
    Surgeons are friendly and fun to work with for the most part

    Cons

    RNs have little to no say in practice/policy changes within the Surgical Services department. Call pay is decreasing to only $2.25/hr and getting paid for a minimum of 3hrs (starting in June). Limited availability to take vacation. Management doesn't support staff who "speak out" they are labeled as "trouble makers" and treated with a threatening attitude. Many changes taking place in June 2014 including a 6.5% decrease in pay.
