    I worked at Lafayette General Medical Center

    Pros

    fast paced environment with lots of overtime, and I learned A LOT while i was there.

    Cons

    Very high staff turnover and poor teamwork overall. I did not have a good experience. There was very little opportunity for advancement and not much training for the position. Our director was rarely available and did not communicate well with the rest of the team. Between the meetings and paperwork I could not spend as much time with patients as I'd like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do exit interviews, especially when there is a trend of staff members leaving at such a high rate. There is a big disconnect between the administration's focus on LEM goals and J2E and what is going on day to day in the hospital.

    Pros

    Lots of talk of change, highly visible CEO. Positive community message.

    Cons

    bad work environment. Lack of team work in all areas. Supervisor's having inappropriate conversations with subordinates, unfair pay practices, favortism, compliance violations. Drinking on the job. Lack of integrity in following policies and procedures appropriately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Stop protecting leaders. You will continue to bleed employees because of the blatant politics running rampant.

    Pros

    As the top healthcare provider in the region, we go out of our way to provide the best care. There is almost always other avenues to pursue within the organization if you get burnt out. We take care of each as colleagues. Adequate benefits, great community involvement.

    Cons

    It can be crazy busy. We're almost always short staffed. The benefits are a little pricy, but no where near what I've seen other places. They really should work on retention. The payscale needs to be be realistic for some of the positions lower on the totem pole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LOVE our current higher ups!

    Pros

    It is well respected in the community and it is a multidisciplinary hospital. We treat all sorts of illnesses and injuries and diseases. Our clients come from a large area of our surrounding community, so the opportunity to see many things and get great experience here is better than other medical centers in the area.

    Cons

    We are over worked and under paid. Our CNO is unrealistic and old fashioned in her way of management. We are constantly short staffed. Our benefits SHOULD be the best around, but they decrease every year. We are given more responsibilities and less commendations and acknowledgement for our hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the new way of farming out housekeeping and dialysis, etc. Our employees are more loyal and committed than any outside firms. The middle man is taking your money, and spending it outside our community. Your most valuable asset is your older employee -- they are loyal and committed and show up for work everyday. These are the people to go to for advice and you should praise THEM.
