    My manager was awesome, super great

    Some lazy nurses, they did not deal with patients. they just passed their meds and sent the patient to the techs.

    Apply same rules to both cna's and nurses

    Pros

    -The people I worked with - meeting new people

    Cons

    Absolutely no room for advancement. They under pay their employees but the funny part is, they think they are over paying you. The upper management is chaotic and all they care about is appearence and not their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Show more respect for your employees. Pay your employees more.

    Pros

    The people are great and it is a very stable place to work

    Cons

    Adverse to change... of you are a cage rattler this is not the place for you. They do not invest in the business as much as competition.

    Advice to Management

    You need to spend some money to fix up the embarrassing same day surgery rooms. And take the advice of the hundreds of consultants you hire. Also the technology use is sad and deeply under supported.

    Pros

    As a level II trauma center and a teaching hospital there was no lack of excitement and disciplines from in which to learn. Very supportive coworkers.

    Cons

    Management not open to suggestions on potential improvements. When very important (safety) issues are brought to the attention of the manager you are seen as a trouble maker. A few very unsafe nurses are allowed to continue working even when concerns have been discussed.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management: Hire/promote unit managers based on knowledge, experience, education rather than seniority.

    Pros

    great patient and family diversity; lots of really nice co-workers

    Cons

    lots of opportunities not being taken advantage of; lots of chiefs (operations managers and service managers) maybe too many

    Advice to Management

    might closely evaluate all management


  9. A great start for a career - but not a place to stay and establish a satisfying one.

    Pros

    This is a truly large and impressive hospital. As a coder, I was exposed to a variety of areas and specialties, and learned a lot in my time there.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Little to no recognition for the job you do. Low reimbursement for the job description, and expected productivity. A 'bonus' that is continually just out of reach because the levels are unreasonable.

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving yourselves pats on the back and raises and spread some of that wealth around. You want to know why people aren't happy and smiling and need that Disney Institute treatment? You needn't look at the employees as being the weak link. It's you.

    Pros

    Great benefits, very good pay. My coworkers are supportive and more than willing to help you out. My supervisor is amazing. Had your back. Great experience.

    Cons

    It's frustrating not to get holidays off. But this is made up for in getting 4 weeks off.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Wonderful team members, exciting fast paced environment, and new things every day.

    Cons

    Lying, cheating upper management. Department of Justice involvement with massive fine that falls on the taxpayers since this is a public hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid to the top management, I have never seen such a waste of money in my 30 year career. (I have worked at many hospitals throughout the country)
