    Pros

    In some areas staff is very nice and like a family, in other areas staff can be very rude. Culture changes unit to unit. Competitive-ish pay, especially compared to inner city hospitals. Also have generous student loan repayment assistance. It is a good place to get some experience, but go somewhere that treats staff better after that.

    Cons

    Staffing is ALWAYS too low, no matter where you are. Everything is about the budget. Suggestions or requests are never followed through on by upper management. Bad scheduling (forced to rotate days/nights, strict every other weekend). Clinical ladder is too much of a hassle. Off site parking.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging your staff that know how to do their job, focus on the bigger picture about what is best for our patients and community. Do not force staff to rotate days/nights with no future hope for being permanent day shift, and every other weekend is too much to ask. Staff your unit accordingly, and you will retain your existing staff.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, medical, dental, paid time off, and working in transport you get to go anywhere in hospital freely and access to every where. not to many places where a page won't work.

    Cons

    working in patient transport, a lot of walking not enough time to rest. hospital is huge and you will be physically drained after the workday is out.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be a little more nicer to employees and instead barking down their backs

    Pros

    Respiratory duties are completely computerized, down to the ventilators. Supplies and equipment are fully stocked. 12 hr shifts make a great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Lazy coworkers often sleeping in the department. Computerized vent checks make it easier for RTs to not be on the unit. Serious problems with management not holding senior RTs to standards. Hostile environment if you are not from Africa or India and. Those that care will be forced out or overworked to cover for the lazy therapists.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the complaints from Nursing that Respiratory is not on the units....especially at night. The respiratory department in located in the basement and serves as a hiding spot for a majority of the staff.
