    I have been working at Grady Health System part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Staff were very patient and grateful for the assistance. I felt like I was truly helping and not hindering the staff. Hospital very clean and professional on the unit I am on. Volunteer jacket provided, Free garage parking & meal voucher every day you volunteer.

    Cons

    The hospital is a little confusing when you are first learning your ways around, BUT ask ANY staff and they are more than eager to point you in the right direction.

    Pros

    Continuous learning, huge opportunity for growth, great place to learn new skills and Grady recognizes the importance of transforming their brand to better their employees and the community.

    Cons

    Because Grady is in the process of transforming their brand there are a lot of growing pains which causes some lack of organization and structure. Processes are a little slow with no accountability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    During the process of transforming the brand don't just focus on the new employees also focus on the more senior employees. Offering them classes on workforce change or some type of class that deals with accepting change and growth.

    Listen to your employees. Adhere to your policy and procedures you established. Pay holiday separate from PTO time.

    Pros

    The benefits are great and such an affordable price. My entire family is completely covered for a fraction of the cost from previous employers. Management is so nice and understanding, yet firm in their commitment to make this a top rated job.

    Cons

    Have not found any yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing as you are.

    Pros

    So many benefits, that one could lost in these benefits alone. From great insurance, all the way to 401k. Leadership is clearly marked out, and defined. Job responsibilities are clearly defined as well as employee regulations and policies. After coming in and gaining the contract for the county's EMS service, Grady has gone out of their way to upgrade all areas of an industry that had fallen behind in the area in which I live. Pride in their service is given and expected from their employees.

    Cons

    Very large company and a department for everything. If you are not use to working in the corporate world, it can be confusing knowing who to speak with when you have a particular concern outside of your department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue hiring the brightest and greatest employees.

    Pros

    Good pay, good potential. Rewarding opportunity all in all. I would go back there again if I could. The staff is knowledgeable and generally pleasing to work with. Has its exceptions like any big company.

    Cons

    While you were given PTO, it was nearly impossible to get it approved without years of seniority. Management could be difficult to deal with. Such a big company its easy to get lost in the numbers.
