    Pros

    This job was a paycheck only, and a ridiculously small one at that considering the volume of work and the amount of stress. Some of my co-workers were great and made having to work there a bit more bearable.

    Cons

    Terrible management at all levels. Terrible pay rates and stupid rules surrounding shift differentials. Work volume was often overwhelming and staffing was inadequate in some of the offsite locations. Scary lack of security at offsite locations.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to listen to employee complaints and suggestions and take some action instead of giving them a bag of Skittles for answering a survey. Rules and expectations set forth by management should be applied and enforced equally for all employees. Supervisors should be more visible and available for this purpose.
    Security in offsite locations needs to be improved for both employee and patient safety.
    Pay people a reasonable living wage. Treat employees with respect and dignity instead of expendable and easily replaced workhorses. Quit dumping more and more work on employees and expanding hours without increasing headcount and/or compensation.

    Pros

    LGH places great value in all of their employees, positive atmosphere, very good benefits, offers some of the best healthcare services in the area. Excellent physicians and state of the art technology.

    Lack of communication across departments, hospital is expanding so fast that employees seem to always be a step behind leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and try to fix current problems instead of continuously looking for new was to expand
