A good place to work.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Jackson Hospital (Alabama) full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGood compensation and benefits, family-like atmosphere, high quality patient care. Growing system is expanding to cover more of the Montgomery area. New administration in the past two years seems to listen better to staff and care about their needs.

ConsA smaller facility than others in the greater metro area and in Birmingham. Less opportunity to expand career horizons. A few growing pains.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep listening to the staff.

Great place to work!

Allied Health Professional (Former Employee)
Montgomery, AL

I worked at Jackson Hospital (Alabama) full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThere are opportunities for growth if you are in nursing. Excellent education department that strives to provide quality opportunities for nurses to grow their knowledge.

ConsSenior leaders are often disconnected from reality. Some leaders play favorites and there is an impression that if you escalate issues you will not gain resolution in your favor. Many departments are not collaborative and often use the excuse that "it's not my job".

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at holding management accountable and provide management training. Improve communication for employees - they are often left in the dark.

Good overtime potential

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
Montgomery, AL

I have been working at Jackson Hospital (Alabama)

ProsGreat people, Good overtime potential, Good PCM support, Good unit.

ConsManagement is clueless a lot of the time when it comes to patient care (they have been out of it for too long)! We are having to make do with less staff, thus creating decreased satisfaction scores. There are some nurses who are constantly written up for making med errors, etc. and this is almost never addressed. It seems if one merely shows up to work and does not call in, one is guaranteed of a job, no matter how shoddy their work performance might be. This creates animosity among employees, compromises patient care and well being and is just plain irresponsible. Moreover, when getting report from certain individuals one has to constantly be looking "for the other shoe to fall" and to not get caught up in their incompetence. Most of us value our licensure and are not willing to have it put in harm's way because of unacceptable nursing practice on the aforementioned individual's part.

Advice to Senior ManagementLISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES! Monthly Town Hall meetings where information may be shared and suggestions taken seriously would help a lot. An across the board raise would also be appreciated. Incentive to work overtime would be a plus. (One hospital I worked at would pay "Bonus bucks" in the form of $10 per hour extra ($120 per shift) if working extra. More effective use of prn staff (filling in for employees on vacation, leave, etc.) is always an alternative that seems to be routinely overlooked in this institution.
