    I worked at Lake Wales Medical Center part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They promote from within, I didn't personally experience this but those around me did. They have a lot of socials with free food and goodies for all employees and they recognize when the hospital is doing well. Very good positive reinforcement.

    Cons

    There was not many cons. It was just hard to get hours in my department so I had to leave for a better opportunity in a different field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and Chris Jesse in the rehab director is a great guy to work for.

    I have been working at Lake Wales Medical Center part-time

    Pros

    Radiology crew is good, I like the managers/director. Great pay, one of the best paying hospitals in the area.

    Cons

    no room for advancement/additional training. They will hire outside of the hospital, to fill positions instead of training the crew they have. Run by nurses, so don't have any run ins with a nurse, you will be wrong.

    I worked at Lake Wales Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits were ok, most of the nurses were wonderful.

    Cons

    Constantly looking over your shoulder, everyone tries to report and backstab everyone "throw you under the bus", favortism, childish "clicks". no employee recognition except negative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the best thing to do would be to clean house.

    Pros

    It is closed to my home. Other than that, the colleagues are very friendly and have a spirit of teamworking. If you want to work either Heart of Florida, Bartow or LWMC, LWMC is better choice to go. Second one is Bartow Hospital, the least is Heart of Florida. ER of Heart of Florida is always flooded with patients. Somtimes it is having 20 holding patients in ER. PCU in HOF is busier and having very sick patients too. My manager in LWMC is pretty good and allows flexibility in scheduling our roster. She is friendly and helpful. She is willing to cross train you if you want.

    Cons

    The patient to nurse ratio is 7:1 in PCU, very dangerous
