    Pros

    All employees are valued. Your voice is heard, and there are plenty of opportunities to suggest improvements and see them acted upon.

    Cons

    Not much negative to say about working there, other than salaries in the non-medical fields are low.

    Pros

    Some very nice people and some great managers. Beautiful work environment.

    Cons

    If you have been there for 5+ years it's impossible to get fired. It's obvious because some of the rudest people are 'lifers.' There is very little room for growth within the hospital.

    Pros

    Good management in my department, lots of support for projects, large education/ travel budget. I have lots of freedom to do my job the way I want to, but most of that is because of my direct superior.

    Cons

    Mediocre health benefits, annual increases restricted to 3%, low paying.

    Advice to Management

    Allow low level and mid level increases to be based on merit. 3% is not a raise, it's a cost of liginf adjustment. Keep up with Bureau of Labor statistics salaries.
