    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.

    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.

    Cons

    Some employees can still improve in their work ethics. Difficult to get rid of poor performers, who often are very toxic for the organization or the department they are in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower, encourage and support leaders to innovate, experiment and manage staff. Allow them to make important decisions and address expressed concerns and challenges where possible. Make decision and set direction without extensive procrastination and 100% buy-in
