    Pros

    Strong since of community and support, High value of continued learning.

    Cons

    It can be hard to get into an upper or mid level inner circle as there are some many employees.
    While the over all leadership of the hospital is strong some upper and mid level leader micro manage against the trend of the hospital sitting some departments off as a less happy place to work

    Pros

    Higher pay scale than most security gigs in Huntsville for in house security staff

    Cons

    No path for advancement defined. Cross departmental supervision ( non security supervising security). Appearance of buddy system on hiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find professionals for management or build their skill sets through training. Take a class on interviewing for supervisor level positions. Define a path of promotion or advancement. Reorient yourself to the employee. Sergeant says "Take care of your subordinates needs, and they will take care of you. Neglect your soldiers, expect them to find another leader.".

    Pros

    In my experience those employees "in the trenches" generally are hard working and do their best for the patients.

    Cons

    Management is out of touch and doesn't consult with those who perform the jobs before making decisions. Changes are made that make more work for employees who are often stretched to the max in time management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask us for our opinions. Be willing to pay incentives for working extra shifts when the census is up. If you are paying nurse managers bonuses for saving money by overburdening their employees unnecessarily, at least be honest about it. We should be informed about managers' bonuses.

    Pros

    Pay is comparable or better to other clinical positions in the area.

    Cons

    Management is changed so often that no one knows who you are. In lieu of learning more about the employees they strong arm you and make your life miserable, even if you are a hard worker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees better before treating them like lazy trash.

    Pros

    It is a very good learning environment. the patient are terrific and if you went into being a nurse because you truly love being a nurse the hospital gives you many opportunities to do so and to grow

    Cons

    I worked hard for a great many years during which I gave my all and never got into trouble. during some pretty severe home problems, I did let my work behavior fall. my tardiness's increased and I was written up twice in over eight years. I am considered eligible for rehire but was told point blank that I would not be rehired due to these things that occurred . I tried to explain that this was not my norm. but found that this company was very uncaring as a whole r/t there employees. we are not people we are just numbers. I loved my job and would love to go back but know not to ever mess up again
