    Pros

    Generally great care for a community hospital, benefits package very competitive with exception of cost of living raises, overall friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Management is in constant chaos with revolving door of upper management, employment very unstable as priorities change, significant differences between campuses unresolved, definitely matters "who you are" as to how you are treated. Anyone having worked in a tertiary care hospital will despise the MD/RN relationship- no respect whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Physically GO to the treatment areas and talk to staff. Follow through. Keep promises. Keep everyone on the same page and accountable in upper management.


  2. Overall it was a good place to work with the exception of the last year and a half.

    Pros

    Close to home, great cardiologists, knowledgeable coworkers.

    Cons

    New management brought in last few years. Patient care not main focus anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to feedback from your employees and patients about recent decisions made.

    Pros

    Awesome people to work with. Decent benefits. Fun workplace. Good training and opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Management was sketchy some times... Took a while to get schedules out. Upper Management took a while to get back to you on things.

    Pros

    Great staff who generally want to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Staff are not supported by managers, managers are not supported by directors/V.P.s and senior leadership. Huge communication gap at these levels. Lots of lip service from leadership but no action to support these words. Old style management. They make all decisions and then tell you what to do.

    Advice to Management

    Plain and simple.....walk the talk! They need to go out and see what is happening in the ranks and show the staff that they are interested and supportive of what they are doing. Instead, they appear disengaged.

    Pros

    I appreciated the benefits. The hospitalization, dental and vision benefits were very good. They are very generous and covered family and spouse. Paid time off was also very generous.

    Cons

    A lot of politics. Who you know is important when working there. Difficult to make improvements at times. Easy to identify problems, not so easy to correct them.

    Advice to Management

    Allow staff to covey problems. Management look the other way or don't want to acknowledge there are problems in their areas.

    Pros

    There is a high camaraderie among coworkers, a real sense of working together. Interpersonal relationships were the best part of my position there.

    Cons

    Practically insignificant raises annually, if at all. The raises are supposed to be based on your performance review, but the review process is extremely poor. Only negatives get highlighted. No raises 2 out of the last 4 years for all staff. Any actual raises are low regardless. You cannot ask for a raise; you get what you get at review time. Some senior VP's, especially new ones, micromanage and do not permit ideas from lower staff. Also, the term "red tape" is appropriate when trying to make any changes, i.e. updating a policy. Very difficult to accomplish. Others in this line of red tape take it upon themselves to think they know better than the content experts. There always seems to be more senior level management, but it's the lower folks who have regularly been getting laid off. There's no way this can't impact patient care and the physical environment of the facilities. Slippery slope....

    Advice to Management

    Let your people be the fantastic resources they are. Streamline the leadership, not the worker bees. Worry about employee satisfaction to the same level of patient satisfaction. If you have a pillar or value you say you hold high, don't contradict yourself through the fruit of your work.

    Pros

    The staff and nursing leadership for the most part are friendly.

    Cons

    The organization does not nurture its staff or develop a trusting and respectful relationship with the staff and the leadership Too many initiatives going on at the same time. Some refer to it as "Flavor of the Week". Organization is unable to set a strategic direction.
