    I have been working at Hanover Hospital full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Safe and easy commute. Easy parking. Many good co-workers

    Cons

    I worked here for many years. My manager was a woman so completely self absorbed that she never missed a photo op or chance to brand an employee's good idea as her own. She promoted perceived loyalty to her over ability, education, and experience every time. Very insecure and controlling, though this was not confined to our department exclusively. Several other managers were also very "difficult." Some were ok. The CNO is out of touch with reality. She has brought on some of her cronies from MD hospitals where she has worked in the past who are equally poor leaders. The wages are poor. There was no weekend differential and shift differentials were poor. Nurses are floated from unit to unit with little consideration for skill or patient acuity. It can be dangerous at times due to the staffing mix. They prefer young staff who make less money and who will be less likely to challenge authority. Those with opinions or backbones need not apply. They insist wages are "market" competitive. I think they are comparing their wages with Myers Meat Market, maybe?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A new team would be best for patients and staff. The hospital needs charismatic leadership not simply a superficial face lift to boost the HCAHPS. It may be all about the survey to you, but it is really all about the patients.

    It's who you know not what you know that keeps you working here.

    Pros

    Some good employees mostly backstabbers waiting to make themselves look good by capitalizing on others.

    Cons

    If you are in good with Dr Freer then you don't need to worry about what you know or how you do your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many chiefs not enough Indians.
    Unrealistic expectations from non workers. Again it's who you know that keeps your job not what you know.

    I worked at Hanover Hospital

    Pros

    There are no good reasons to work there. Management is terrible, treatment of patient's is terrible, it's all about numbers and money.

    Cons

    Management forever putting you down. It's all about money in their eyes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change all of the management.
