    I worked at Miami Valley Hospital part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of leadership positions are held by women. The CEO, CFO and COO were all women while I worked there. Women are encouraged to be competitive and are rewarded on par with men - which is not true of every organization. Culture is positive, supportive, professional and friendly - a great combination. Great training environment. Teamwork is emphasized and coworkers are encouraged to support one another - not just in word, but deed also.

    Cons

    Pay is either at market rate or below. I had requested a raise while I was there to match the market rate for my level of education and experience in my position and provided them with lots of research to back it up, in addition to a stellar performance review and was declined.

    I have been working at Miami Valley Hospital

    Pros

    I like the opportunity to grow within the company. Some people say there is no way to move up, but try going back to school. Make yourself an asset to the company.

    Cons

    The benefits through the years have become more and more expensive, with less things being covered. It is more of a national trend, rather employer related.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your shining stars know they are going places.

    I have been working at Miami Valley Hospital full-time

    Pros

    There is teamwork, it is a learning facility with opportunities to grow, continued learning is encouraged.

    Cons

    It is difficult to transfer to another unit or specialty, nurses work harder than what they get compensated for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The hourly amount that nurses get paid should be re-evaluated. There should be more incentives to keep nurses or for nurses who don't miss work because we lose some good nurses who get burnout on working so hard and many nurses never miss work but feel they aren't recognized for their commitment to their employer or co-workers.

    I have been working at Miami Valley Hospital part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The compensation is good and there is opportunity to work with committed competent professionals.

    Cons

    The hospital was recently absorbed into the Premier network and some of the changes make me think the new administrators have not been in direct care in a very long time, if ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your line staff and be more responsive to their concerns. Possibly try spending some time shadowing them to see how some of the recent changes are effecting staff and patient care if possible.

    I have been working at Miami Valley Hospital (less than a year)

    Pros

    Most co-workers on the unit I work are hard-working and fun to be around.

    Cons

    Many are afraid to speak up against the constant understaffing and frequently being forced to take 7 to 8 patients, plus do admits and discharges. The culture appears to have turned into being expected to stay quiet and just be thankful for a job. The manager for the particular unit I work tries to bully the quiet workers, yet is overly friendly with those who flagrantly break policy. I get by ok because I speak up for myself but some don't have the confidence. HR offers NO help. Many formal complaints made about this manager by many people....yet the manager continues on. Management hides in "meetings" when days are really rough offering no communication and even less help. Sad, because I know other people who work in other areas and it is not like this everywhere throughout the hospital.

    Per diem rate for nurses is currently $30. Kettering offered $32 and $34 depending on agreement over five years ago when I last worked there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you cannot change your approach and attitude with the ever changing healthcare environment, perhaps it is time for you to change your scenery. Concrete thinking, the need for power and control, dishonesty in order to make self and unit appear better and overall crass attitude lead to flow employee retention and high turnover rate. Please make note of which units this is happening on and fix the problem!!!!!

    Pros

    Not bad for Dayton, OH

    Cons

    Compensation is out of alignment. Evaluations are poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying people and offer better benefits. It's becoming a sorority environment and it needs new blood in the compensation department.
