    I worked at Glens Falls Hospital full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you're willing to work, they will use that drive

    Cons

    management believes in letting others take responsibility; firm belief that there are always applicants to be hired more cheaply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    experience needs to be recognized with pay, not platitudes.

    I have been working at Glens Falls Hospital

    Pros

    Not many pro's over the last couple of years. other than it is local.

    Cons

    Management could care less about any of the staff, doesn't matter how long you have been there you are still treated bad. Most of the staff there now are new grads with little to no experience, most of the seasoned nurses left when the LPN'S were demoted .and our director of nursing was let go, Very few seasoned nurses remained, NO job security, patient to nurse / tech ratio is not safe. We are not paid if we don't get our breaks, we are told to be there 20 min before our shift starts but not allowed to punch in early, When I started 8 years ago it was a great place to work, now it is a place to earn your pay and go home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about your staff for a change, try working on the floor your self to see how it is .

    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 (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.

    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?
