    I worked at Northeast Georgia Health System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Clean work environment and constantly given little appreciation gifts.
    Short of killing someone, your job is almost definitely secure. Management does NOT have the backbone to fire you ESPECIALLY if you play the race/sex/disability card(s).

    Cons

    You can have coworkers that are lazy, because they know they will not be fired. They know how to play the race/sex/disability card(s).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire slowly (which you do for the most part).
    Fire quickly (which you do NOT do).
    Quit trying to be "competitive" with your wages and benefits. All that means is that you are the same as any other hospital. Instead, be excellent with your wages, BUT fire those people that you know very well should have been fired a LOOOOOOOOOOoooooong time ago. Believe me, we ALL see that you are too scared to stand up the hard working employees out of fear of a few playing said race/sex/disability card(s). They are abusing the system and it is bringing morality WAAAAaaaay down. Some doctors should be let go too!

    Hospital good - Billing Department a nightmare!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Northeast Georgia Health System

    Pros

    The doctors are wonderful and caring.

    Cons

    The billing department is a scatter-brained mess of a nightmare. Even with insurance!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overlook your billing department - ESPECIALLY your charity care workers. They denied my son (who is a student) charity care and here is the reason they checked on his sheet: "other". Now that is poor management.

    Ratings were highly stressed but support of nursing staff not high on the agenda

    Current Employee - Registered Nurse
    Current Employee - Registered Nurse

    I have been working at Northeast Georgia Health System full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are fairly good benefits- health plan, 401k and other nice little perks. The pay is competitive, but not quite consistent with Atlanta's pay scale

    Cons

    There was not much room for growth and exploring options in other areas of the hospital were not exactly encouraged. There was a push for growth and development of the health system but not of the individuals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage personal growth and offer more opportunities for staff development.

    Pros

    Great place if you are just starting out in your career. You can get away with a lot of mistakes there, and there are some interesting technologies on hand.

    Cons

    You will never be able to climb the ranks in some departments. Prepare to leave within a couple of years for better pay and for a better career path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management pretends to listen, but they never do. Stop with all the meetings talking about change, and actually make the changes happen.
