    I worked at Lafayette General Medical Center full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Management communicates All information regarding Hospital VERY well,

    Cons

    VERY LOW PAY, Little or NO Opportunity for Advancement. High Turnaround for employees- especially those who are devoted and get screwed by upper management in the long run due to politics and who's rear end gets kissed the most.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BE TRUTHFUL TO ALL EMPLOYEES ALL THE TIME! DONT TELL THEM WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR WHEN THEY WANT TO HEAR IT AND ACT OUT DIFFERENTLY THEN STATED

    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.

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

    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.

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