    I have been working at Halifax Health Medical Center full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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)

    I worked at Halifax Health Medical Center as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work was definitely a pleasure to go to. My co-workers were wonderful and we all got along famously. We had pot luck lunches, outings, and everyone genuinely looked out for one another.

    Cons

    The pay at Halifax was not as competitive as Orlando, or even Altamonte Springs or Sanford. It is a State funded hospital, but I'm not sure if that is a good enough reason. The benefits at Halifax were also not as good as even the local cable company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your hands are tied when it comes to salary but more squeaky wheels will get greased.

    Pros

    location is great. Access to doctors is good.

    Cons

    Middle and upper management are not interested in the employees under them. They are looking out for themselves and their larger than needed pay scale. New hires are hired in at the same wage as the loyal employees that have been there for 10 years. I know for a fact. One manger didn't know how to do e-mail and sent out a mass e-mailing to t he effect. Employees had to tell her of her error. Go figure. If management does not like you, your not a favorite and do not fit in with what they think, you are outcast. Private party e-mails sent out to dept. and the manager is friends with person and managers hang around with their employees. Too many times long term employees caught doing their banking on company time and company computers. Management aware, turned their heads. The hard working employees work while the go old boys club have a good time in dept. instead of working. Ever wonder why the dept. has so many accounts outstanding?? Need to have all employees held accountable to the same standards and work ethic. Sloppy dressing mangers hired in that employees have to train.

    Middle management gossips and employees are allowed to gossip about medical records of people they know. When bring this to employee attention to not do this, the employees go to management and lie to cover up . retaliation is really used there.

    Doctors have several large conference rooms while employees work in mold and dirty dusty areas. Restrooms never stocked with toilet paper and dirt is encrusted on ceiling vents and walls in corners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean this place up and start taking an interest in your GOOD reliable employees. It starts with you. and you are not a good example. The Cornerstone is really a joke. It is a programs you waste dollars on so that when you get less money from the negative grades, you can blame it on employees. If your going to talk it, you need to do it your self. It starts from top down and your a bad example.

    I worked at Halifax Health Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are so many great employees working here that go above and beyond. They are willing to help their fellow employees. I learned a great deal about healthcare operations.

    Cons

    Nothing but a boys club. Very low employee morale. Hardest workers are not recognized for their hard work. There is so much money wasted that should be going to the employees.

    Largest hospital in east central fla

    Cons

    Executives and Leadership are grossly overpaid.

    Staff nurses and allied health have reduced pay and benefits due to poor leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time for change in all senior leadership. Time for the board to make changes for the tax payers.

    This company has interest in keeping people for the long haul. They will help you further your education and career. Every one complains about pay, but I feel I get paid well for what I do.

    Great team support but division between departments and areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep working on Cornerstone, it's a great program
