    Pros

    I was a cardiovascular ICU nurse at Broward Health and I absolutely enjoyed my time working in this unit. The manager is fantastic, supportive and all around great person to work for. I would have stayed there if I was not moving out of state. It was a great teamwork atmosphere in a very fast paced, high intensity environment. I learned so much working with wonderful people around me and I would definitely come back to Broward Health to work with the CV-ICU team again.

    Cons

    I think every hospital is dealing with the same issues and downs with our ever-changing health care system here in the U.S. At least, you could deal with those cons with a great team by your side in the CV-ICU at Broward Health.

    Advice to Management

    I think upper management needs to realize what a great team of nurses that he has especially in CV-ICU and compensate accordingly in order to compete with other hospitals in South Florida.

    Pros

    Flexible with scheduling around school schedules
    HR workers are helpful when needed
    Overall experience was decent
    Being able to take shifts at other hospitals within the system is a plus
    Admin attempts to make changes for the better for FT employees

    Cons

    Per diem staff should get more pay since they receive no benefits
    Per diem staff pay should start based on years of experience
    Smokers can take as many smoke breaks as the please
    Nurses and CNAs not reprimanded for refusing to assist with a patient when needed
    Certain longterm employees are resistant to change, hindering the betterment of the floor environment

    Pros

    Good health benefits. Good work-life balance as top management is committed to having a good work-life balance for themselves. Corporate office buildings are a ghost town by 5PM Monday to Thursday and earlier on Friday or holidays.

    Cons

    Management is not adaptable and flexible regarding workforce planning. Workers not encouraged to grow professionally and be upwardly mobile.
    They are required to fill certain routine functions and roles and get blocked if they try to climb out of those repetitive functions/roles.
    Too much favoritism and cronyism.

    Advice to Management

    Be more committed to professional development of staff.
    Be more creative and flexible on workforce planning rather than so much concern on having workers in place performing routine functions.

    Pros

    A lot of people in other departments are friendly. The benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Micromanaging control freak who dominated my every move.
    Co-workers that were able to get away with screaming loud laughter and nonstop talking never punished.
    Incorrect information on benefits, HR given at every turn.

    Advice to Management

    Act like real managers - listen to your staff.
    Prevent micromanaging jerks like the Medical Director of CHS from ruining excellent staff who only wanted to please.
