    I have been working at Freeman Health System full-time

    Pros

    Very good work environment! Good moral and encouragement from management within Professional Support. Wonderful Doctors on staff who appreciate their nurses. Benefits are decent while some are pricey.

    Cons

    Pay is very poor for licensed nurses compared to surrounding hospitals, even though they tell you they compare. LPN's are not treated very nicely by staff within Freeman-only from Professional Support. They are not recognized at all during nurses week. But Freeman does not do anything special for nurses during nurses week. This is the first company I have worked for that as a nurse I was not recognized during nurses week with a special gift or Bar-b-q.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay rate for LPN's and recognize ALL nurses during nurses week within the hospital and clinics. We all work hard! Otherwise Freeman is a great place to work!

    Pros

    Great coworkers excellent pay Very good benefits Very clean working environment Lots of opportunity for training and seminars

    Cons

    Elitism Problems in mgt overlooked or ignored

    Advice to Management

    Consider progressive movement Listen to employees Honor contracts Stagnation in mgt paralyzes change and progress Address problems in mgt. There are good people there who are stuck in the past or are powerless to improve the situation.

    I have been working at Freeman Health System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked with a really great team of nurses. Always felt comfortable asking questions if I wasn't sure about somthing. Learned alot and the department I worked in was good about encouraging their nurses to advance their knowledge and provided various opportunities to do this. They pay for all your required and most optional certifications!

    Cons

    Politics that come with working in a large company. Pay could be better, but after recent budget changes, is adequate.

    Advice to Management

    The team you have in your ICU is setting a wonderful example for the rest of the hospital. There is actual evidence of teamwork and sincere interest starting with the director, which has spread to the rest of the unit. Would like to see that same enthusiasm in some of the other areas of the hospital...

    I have been working at Freeman Health System full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I love working with my co-workers as a team and interacting with patients. They all are a big part of my family and friends.

    Cons

    Regardless of the level of education, work experience and the many years of devoted service I've given them I was never ever able to move up to a better paying job or be considered for a promotion. I have applied for so many different positions over the years that I was qualified for and didn't even get considered that I have come to the conclusion that it's not what you know, but who you know that gets you where you want to go for this company. They pay you just enough to keep you where you're at because they know you can't find another job somewhere else in the same town for any better wage. Also, the stress level is very high at all times because they insist on you doing more work with less help.

    Advice to Management

    I think employees should be recognized and promoted when possible for all the hard work and years of dedication they've put in here and be rewarded for it and not just be pigeon holed forever in the same position just because they have always done a tremendous job for the company where they have been stuck at for many years and overlooked for advancement possibilities.. Employees need to be allowed to grow to feel a sense of accomplishment in their career instead of being stifled.
