    Pros

    Decent pay as far as lab techs go.

    Cons

    Had to pay a lot for parking. Upper management in the lab DID NOT care about employee moral and were more interested in giving orders rather than collaborating to find logical solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the well-being of your employee's and less on your own personal agendas.


  6. Lack of good caring managers only worried about what they can do that makes them look good.

    Pros

    I get paid on time and have decent benefits.

    Cons

    Time off is impossible. Issues of daily workplace are not addressed in a timely manner. Too much politics, clicks and silo mentality amoung management.

    Advice to Management

    Unless their is an epiphany and change of heart and soul by mangement to care not only for their staff who gives excellent care to the patient high turn over will ensue.


  7. I worked in the Emergency Department. I loved my job, my coworkers, and the mission we stood for!

    Pros

    I think The emergency department can be a wonderful place to work depending on your supervisor and the management. I believe in the mission statement! The doctors and residents are knowledgeable, compassionate, and always striving for the best for the patient. Never have I seen care compromise at all on the basis of an economic level or insurance or lack of insurance! Most of the staff takes pride in their work. They work diligently and hard in the care on behalf of the patient!

    Cons

    Huge issues with management. Constant turnover in management positions in the last 5 years. Management is huge on micromanaging. My manager wanted me to dummy down, do less work, and not to excel any further in my job.
    Management needs to talk to the employees more often about their jobs and what the job expectations are especially when your new or don't know!
    Huge turnover in employees. Over half to three quarters of the long-term employees have left the building, and management Allowed their knowledge and experience to walk out the door!
    Most of the nursing staff is young and inexperienced. There is a constant turnover with nurses and healthcare assistance. Consistency is lacking, knowledge and experience is limited which is completely unfortunate!

    Advice to Management

    Huge lack of communication with The employees. Rarely did management discuss or confer with The employees about development, changes, ideas to improve the function and experience for the patients in the emergency department.
    Management tends to micromanage. Management needs to macro manage and allow the employees to excel to their best abilities, not stifle them in fear and trepidation.
    Listen to the employees about their experiences and knowledge in their job class especially when change and or development of new ideas are needed.
