    I worked at JFK Medical Center as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I volunteered for a few months. Everyone is nice. Volunteering provides good insight into the daily life at a hospital. Did not interact with doctors as much as I did with the nurses.

    Cons

    None that I came accross

    Great co workers & Doctors

    Upper management cares nothing about patients, patient & staff safety or quality of care. Its all about numbers, times & dollars.

    I have been working at JFK Medical Center

    Pros

    If you can succeed here, you can work anywhere. Hospital is most specialized in area. We perform exams that are not done elsewhere. A flagship hospital for community.

    Cons

    No recognition and low salary. Our wages are much lower than average compared to other hospitals in area. Management does not provide a healthy environment. Have to take call at three different sites and a constant turnover in staff means less experienced techs are hired but are not skilled to handle this scope of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the wage to above average. Better techs will come, ones that are skilled and not new and fresh out of school with no experience. Show that they want to reward staff and want to keep skilled staff. Prove that this flagship hospital has a skilled staff willing and eager to show ownership in this hospital.

    Pros

    Large hospital, lots of procedures, busy ER if you like that, a good place for learning experiences

    Cons

    wondering if they are going to change cut my hours, change the schedule? Questionable retirement benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Meetings with management seem to be that they are there to hear what you want/have to say, but it seems nothing ever comes of suggestions or complaints.
