    I have been working at Greenville Hospital System

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, marketing department values putting out quality material and there is a lot of work to be done. The people are all very friendly- even upper-level management. Working with health care providers is usually rewarding because they are working so hard to advance health care in the Upstate.

    Cons

    The main challenge is the lack of opportunity for advancement. It doesn't seem like the marketing department itself is growing (though GHS as a whole is). It doesn't seem as though they are hiring many people and they hire out a lot of their work to contractors rather than bring anyone else on full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think GHS is moving in a great direction! Just continue taking care of your people.

    I have been working at Greenville Hospital System part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good training and hours, take job of healthcare seriously. Many managers are very sincere in their work here and do work very hard to be supportive.

    Cons

    There are some very strange corporate policies which set in motion staff getting hauled out over rather minor issues. Not sure if it is a manager interpretation of these policies or the actual policy. Many staff members across GHS campuses have told me they faced similar issues and did not appreciate it. Also was told by a hiring manager at a different hospital system that they have hired many GHS people that were very stressed out over GHS policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe some caution about policy of annual reviewing of staff...there must be a balance here that does not cause people to feel like they are worthless while at the same time striving so hard to be competent and having a smile on their face and displaying our motto. Is it really necessary to haul people out for details...that were actually made such an issue so that management could show that they were doing their job?

    Pros

    Very good support from management for whatever is needed. Productivity is reasonable. Very good benefits. Career ladder is functional and appealing to grow.

    Cons

    Staff coverage for PTO is challenging. This will limit the schedule for treatments or result with staff working having to take on significantly more work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to interact with employees. Town Hall meetings are very effective.

    Pros

    At GHS there is a tremendous opportunity for anyone who wants to grow within the organization. The culture is committed to continuous improvement and learning, diversity of its employee base, and treats its employees fairly. You get out of it what you are willing to put into it; the opportunities are there. Physicians, affiliated staff, nursing, and corporate all work together to ensure that GHS is on the forefront of serving the needs of the communities that it is privileged to be a part of.

    Cons

    GHS is a large healthcare organization that experiences significant growth each year. It can at times be a bit overwhelming. However, Leadership along with HR is committed to providing each employee with individualized attention which helps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on the development of Leadership and management skills.

    I worked at Greenville Hospital System full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay was great, overtime was available.

    Cons

    Unless you were best friends with upper management then plan on staying in your position. Management is arrogant and clicky even to their peers. Tons of meetings that had no purpose other than to fill management time slots during the day. Supplies are hard to come by, request is madatory for everything. When requesting pens, I was sent two, one for me and one for my patients. Ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to impress each other and upper management. Instead focus on your employees and make the business office a better, more organized place for patients. When off campus management cares about your employees more than you do its time to re-evaluate what your true position is within the company.

    Pros

    Good employee benefits package. Generally caring management from department supervisor to CEO for employee well-being as well as community. Employer provided opportunities for improvement in health and family issues.

    Cons

    Pain scale for some positions could be better by providing more opportunity for job performance raises. Pay range is generally based on years of experience with no opportunity to exceed that range by merit..

    Mixed signals in the IS group

    I worked at Greenville Hospital System full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    People are very welcoming and genuine. The company seems to value diversity and healthy living (which is nice, since it is a hospital). PTO very generous, and salary was very competitive (if you have the right degrees, certifications, etc.)

    Cons

    Information Systems group is a mess. They recently layed-off 30 people, so everyone is constantly watching their back, and no one shares knowledge (so that they will maintain their value). A number of directors and high-level IS leaders were brought in from a Florida hospital system, where they had previously been dismissed. They are trying to make GHS like Health First in Florida, instead of seizing on the positive elements that already exist in the company today. No real processes and no consistency in how to get things done from one day to another. IS group is easily 10-15 years behind the times in technology as well as process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't sell people on what you wish the company would be - tell them what is it so that it's not a shock when they arrive and immediately want to get out.

    Pros

    Great benefits, most staff is friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    HR department is very unorganized. I had to apply for a job twice even after I had already been offered the job. Hard to get applications pushed through to the correct departments for hiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-vamp HR department.
