    Wonderful support from upper management until last year when parent company instituted so many changes

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Hickory, NC

    Prossalary, benefits, opportunity to learn and advance, knowledgeable and experienced staff, variety of experiences, caring management team

    Consparent company makes too many changes that should be handled at site level - this impacts trust and encourages competition among peers

    A great place to learn and grow as a Physical Therapist and administrator.

    Adminstartive Director of Therapy Services (Former Employee)
    Hickory, NC

    ProsThe people! Good benefits, great PTO plan, annual merit raises. The hospital staff daily strive to provide a safe, stable, and competitive care delivery model.

    ConsDespite excellent profitability, corporate reinvestment in the local facility has been minimal in last 5 years. This reduces Frye's viability to enhance physician satisfaction, maintain employee satisfaction and successfully compete in a highly aggressive market.

    Quality medical facility with corporate mentality

    Courier (Former Employee)
    Hickory, NC

    ProsDoctors, nurses, and ancillary staff care about their patients. Convenient location close to downtown area of Hickory. Technology and available diagnostic tools are up-to-date and great for a facility in a metro area of its size.

    Consthe corporation that owned the facility when I last worked there seemed more concerned with budgets and cutting expenses than providing quality patient care by encouraging and providing incentives staff to work as a cohesive team.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo away with the across-the-board 'cost-of-living' raises and provide incentives based on measured performances and patient satisfaction.

    I was treated fairly well.

    Staff Nurse (Former Employee)
    Hickory, NC

    ProsThe work schedule was flexible and fit my needs.

    ConsI didn't like the set up of the floors, and 12 hours is much too long to have to work.

    Please hear our plea for a stable practice of doctors and a nice cost of living raise !!

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
    Hickory, NC

    ProsThe very best in technology, recognition in our heart center (tower), wonderful coworkers, educational opportunities as well as in-house educational classes.

    ConsThe present physician situation is one of the biggest downsides. There are so many doctors working within the new hospitalist group, the patients are dissatisfied with some of the doctors and having to see so many diffiferent ones if they have an extended stay. The payscale is lower than any in this area and the raises given are lower than the standard. The shortage of nurses and the lack of advertisement in the local newspapers to try to recruit new nurses. Nurses week was not recognized well this year. Frye does not give Christmas bonuses as other hospitals do. They only give a gift card to a local grocery store for $30.00. Other hospitals are giving $400.00 and $500.00 bonuses. The badges are terrible. You can hardly read the names on them (especially if you are elderly). Can't even see the credentials very well and they are located at the very bottom.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo advertise for nurses in the local newspapers and to increase pay scales to at least match area hospitals.

    Hospital administration should focus some attention on what employees need

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAdministration never comes around so it's very laid back

    ConsAdministration never comes around so you don't who's in charge.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate with employees more and get some effective leaders

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
