    Pros

    Location is beautiful and peaceful and I have made some good friends.

    Cons

    Very poor communication, their pay increases amount to nothing while the cost of insurance plan continues to rise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder to make all employees feel like they are an important part of the success of the organization. There appears to be a double standard regarding policy that needs to be addressed.

    I have been working at Hospital Sisters Health System part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Vactions PTO, PRN flexibility, caring for people.
    This company was great when I started over 12 years ago. Nurses were in high demand and they paid well treated employees with respect and offered great patient care. Around 5 years ago the hospital changed the way they staff their floors. The nurses had to take on more patients with less help. Then a few years after that they cut all of our help at the nurses station (HUC). Now an RN has to answer the phones while caring for patients. Even the YMCA has a receptionist and they are not saving lives.
    It is very hard for the nurses to ever eat or get take a break. The economy and new health law seems to have frightened them into tightening their belts.
    Now with nursing jobs in low demand in this area, they will only hire BSN prepared nurses and want everyone to go back to school, although they will not pay for it.

    Cons

    Poor raises, no loyalty, cutting staff, no support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the nurses care for patients. Stop cutting positions! We can't do it all alone!
