    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, comfortable atmosphere, honest & approachable leadership, tuition reimbursement, little micro-management at department level.

    Cons

    Relatively low pay, some duties inappropriately assigned, employees are sometimes "pigeonholed," increased expectations despite cutbacks to resources, contribution of certain positions often overlooked.

    Advice to Management

    Make better use of employees' skills and time by assigning work appropriately. Don't leave employees in limbo - if a request is not going to be honored, inform them and provide some feedback.

    Pros

    Comparatively small staff so most people know each other by name throughout the company. Since it's a community hospital you get to know many of the patients and their families.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to other places. It is a small hospital so not many different departments and specialties to work in.

    Advice to Management

    It's nice that you ask for employee suggestions but it doesn't seem that they are actually being heard. It's understandable that not everything that is suggested can be implemented but some feedback as to why things are being done or not being done would be appreciated.

    Pros

    Very good benefits, close to home, very neat and clean place to work. Alot of incentives. Very good cafeteria.

    Cons

    Make less money than other hospitals. Not enough parking for employees. Working at a small hospital people think it is not good.

    Advice to Management

    More parking which they already know. Make the gym open longer or vbring it back to the main building.

    Pros

    community feel- everyone there had a good family sense to them and seemed to feel good about working there

    Cons

    demanding schedule-- in my department there was not enough staff and so it placed a lot of strain on the employees there

    Advice to Management

    i think there are good leaders there, but often they might have needed to listen more to the employees and what would make things better


  11. Mostly positive having worked there for over 5 years.
