    I have been working at Glens Falls Hospital

    Pros

    close to home, nighttime differential pay

    hectic environment, nurse to patient ratio, chronically short staffed, at times negative atmosphere

    I have been working at Glens Falls Hospital full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Flexible, Convenient, Good learnign experience for new starting employee. Small town Hospital feel.

    Cons

    Salary range for position is not on par with other major organizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the staff you have and compensate accordingly. The work expected of the small team is great compared to other comparable institutions resources for the same build prospective. Without some re evaluation and soon continued losses seem eminent to the IT team.

    I worked at Glens Falls Hospital full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Was a highly respected, well managed 410 bed community hospital.

    Cons

    Over the most recent 4-5 years they seem to have lost their way and forgotten what it was that made them highly respected to begin with.........their employees !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most well run organizations these days are a mixture of experienced and newer hired employees. Not a high percentage of one or the other type employee.

    I have been working at Glens Falls Hospital full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Good pharmacy discount. Employee discount for copays based on employment status

    Cons

    Poor morale. No sense that upper management views you as more than replaceable......a warm body. No job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An employee that feels valued will perform better. Obtaining a "status" isn't more important than caring for patients and the community. Isn't that a hospital's primary purpose?

    Former Employee - Lab Specimen Processing Tech in Glens Falls, NY

    I worked at Glens Falls Hospital part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Glens Falls Hospital is one of the few hospitals I know that is willing to give people with little to no experience a chance to learn. I was one of those cases. It was a great environment, everyone was friendly and people actually cared.

    Cons

    There were some days with a lot of downtime and then other days where the work would not stop. Workload is not consistent. There's also a lot of miscommunication between upper management and workers as to how things are supposed to be done.
