    I worked at Lakeland Regional Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed being a benefits consultant because I was able to help most patients apply for either Medicaid or the state issued medical insurance to help pay for their medical bills if they qualified.

    Cons

    It was difficult at times when there would be one or more non-citizen patients that didn't qualify for any type of insurance to help pay their medical bills and most of them were low income families.

    Pros

    This is a great place to work because you can move up quickly to other positions. There are also a lot of great managers working here and they will try to help you succeed. Also there are always hours to work so you don't have worry about not getting enough hours.

    Cons

    At times it is understaffed and management can be unsympathetic on this topic. I also do not think there is enough recognition for all the workers regardless if the patients recommend them or not.

    Pros

    the shifts offered are flexible, if you work in an office most of the offices are nice and are always being updated, the hardware they provide is above average and they will make special accommodations per job functions

    Cons

    promotions more based on experience with the company than performance in job function

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take a look at the market value of jobs, more reasonable offers will gain higher performance employees

    Pros

    People are nice and the lake is beautiful in the summer time. If you can make friends with the right people, you can advance quickly without ever having to go back to school.

    Cons

    They place no value on education BSN make the same as ADN and if they can, they will replace you with an LPN.

    Pros

    People here are very helpful. They keep up with advancements in care. You're always learning something new. And, you always feel like you've made an impact in the care of your patients.

    Cons

    Because it's a large hospital, it's kind of hard to keep well staffed. So, you do more work than at other facilities.

    I have been working at Lakeland Regional Medical Center full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Job security? Nice people to work with but poorly managed.

    Cons

    Too many lazy people who get away with doing very little. The good employees take up the lazy employees slack. If they didn't the place would come to a stop. 24 hour pharmacy department where each shift rotation blames the other. The service could be so much more efficient with some effective management.
    The training in learn as you go. There is no explanation of how things work yet you are expected to answer calls to help nurses with an issue. Frustration?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some control. Ask the staff their view on the department. Look at how to improve the service. 3 different shifts all work in different ways. They should operate the same.
    I am happy to be working at LRMS but my department could be so much better.

    Pros

    They offer benefits to people working 24 hours a week, there are lots of opportunities for advancement and transfers within the hospital, and they continually try to include all employees in hospital news and improvement.

    Cons

    There weren't many downsides to working at LRMC. The only complaint I have is there wasn't enough staffing when I was working as a Patient Care Assistant. Sometimes I would have 15-18 patients all on my own and that isn't safe.

    Pros

    LRMC is an excellent hospital to work for. Great pay, great benefits.

    Cons

    I can't speak of anything negative, other than being laid off b/c they laid off all transcriptionists, which is why I no longer work there.
