    Pros

    Benefits!!! The best there is! Large organization with many hospitals under there umbrella so you can move about. Greenville Memorial is the flagship, so to speak, and where I work. Its always under construction. The pay is average. You are working for a non profit though...

    Cons

    As with any hospital you get good co workers and you get bad. HR is getting better at handling situations and there is always a number you can call if they are not helpful. The OR has, under the current director, a constant fear of being let go. I have seen the director maybe twice. The off shifts are under staffed and dangerously understaffed on the weekends for a level one... Standing up for yourself WILL get you fired.

    Advice to Management

    POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT! I never heard of the good I was doing from management, I would hear it from my co-workers and surgeons, but from supervisors to managers its always what someone did wrong, or was PERCEIVED to do wrong. Please Please try harder to keep the experienced workers there!! It truly makes a difference.

    Pros

    Everyone likes a stable work environment, and I don't think you could find a more stable work environment anywhere around.

    Cons

    There are limitations on certain things that make it difficult to function timely in some situations. I think this comes along with large organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure the continual and consistent application of conscious leadership

    Pros

    System is great. A lot of movement around conscious leadership and top level execs know what they are doing.

    Cons

    Had an okay boss. Still needs a lot of development. They promote based off of years and not your work.

    Pros

    Strong Leadership, Progressive Marketing Efforts, Progressive Organization, A good community partner

    Cons

    Lean staffing - to put it nicely. compensation is average with little to no incentives for strong performance.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. Value education and training for non-clinical workforce. Reward for strong performance both on the individual, work group and corporate level.

    Pros

    Great benefits, opportunities for advancement, shared-decision making. Great teamwork among staff. The hospital tries to be flexible and work with employees needing to arrange schedules based on family and school needs.

    Cons

    The organization is so large that sometimes changes seem to take months before being implemented. The hiring process takes a few months.

    Advice to Management

    Implement ways to evaluate change processes and include bedside staff in this evaluation process. Turn in job position requisitions to the human resource department in a timely fashion so that our staffing shortages can be filled quicker.

    Pros

    Nice place with decent people, most of them. (Last year at employer was earlier (2005+)but no option on review site)

    Cons

    The others not so decent, you go out of your way , above and beyond to help people on top of your good work ethic and you end up having to deal with teachers directors who treat training doctors like we are a dime a dozen with no support towards us when we need it instead we get easily replaced. Can't make up for lost time.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the big picture for trainees and work with your team, not quietly against them because of your ego and positions. Life is bigger than that. don't forget the doctors sacrifice and their need in society who end up having to sit at home due to burnout etc with 20 yrs of medical and clinical knowledge that can't be used with when rules allow us to treat yet we can't have any or can't discuss it or can't find alternatives, unfortunate and convenient red tape to keep out anyone you don't like instead of work it out. No good recourse for training doctors, 30 hour shifts every 4th day call not proven to help or benefit in any way when shortage of doctors and many without jobs or licenses due to upper echelon red tape to prevent it. So much wrong with the system toward training physicians and applicants who study for s decade and can't get jobs, try to swallow letting it go and relearning or doing something new.
