    Pros

    Great People, good benefits, stable company

    Cons

    Hiring process is horrible. Even if you are qualifed for the job, you have to know someone.

    Advice to Management

    Look at resume's for your posting. I don't think HR is looking at them closely. You may be missing a lot of good candidates.

    Pros

    The organization is committed to excellence. Most employees really care about the patients.

    Cons

    Many employees are under-insured due to the deductible and co-insurance requirements.

    Pros

    Decent pay, benefits, overtime, somewhat flexible, training opportunities and good values

    Cons

    Often overworked, understaffed, unorganized and demanding

    Advice to Management

    Huge lack of departmental communication between employees, supervisors, and senior leadership, constant understaffing makes work more stressful and not comfortable

    Pros

    The hourly wage was very good and above other hospitals for the professional. The manager had their favorite employees and if you were not on that list, you felt pretty worthless. Your thoughts, suggestions, etc. were not considered at all.

    Cons

    I can say that this was the worst hospital I have ever worked for. The management team that I worked under were not progressive with their management style; very punitive. It doesn't take any talent to being that type of manager.

    Advice to Management

    Treat professionals as the professional they are. Everyone has something of value to give and you should not be in a Management position if you cannot realize this.

    Pros

    Great people to work with! The individual units really work as a good team. Met life-long friends there. Loved the actual job!

    Cons

    No recognition for the going above and beyond. LOTS of favoritism shown. When the managers like you, they shun everyone else. It makes it easy for people to advance but harder for GOOD people to advance. It's almost like a high school clique in the cafeteria. Senior management is disconnected from everyone else. Too busy trying to expand but letting their employees fall to the wayside.

    Advice to Management

    You should listen to your employees. Ice cream day does not improve morale. Change improves morale. You are setting a standard for your nursing staff that is almost unattainable. It's becoming very hard to actually take care of the patient between learning new protocols and procedures every two months, charting every time they sneeze, and having way too many patients for it to be safe. Come back to reality!

    Pros

    Vastly growing, core values taken very seriously. Good benefits.

    Cons

    The NGPG (the physicians side of the organization) is separately operated from the medical center. Do not expect to work for the medical center or that it is even managed by the human resources or the hospital. Does not run in sync with the hospital standards or core values.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate and listen to all your managers and administrators not just the ones in liking. Maybe then you will have less of a turn over rate in management.

    Pros

    There are some managers who feel the need to take over your work or there is a lot of duplication. Yes the organization is about continuous improvement but the strategy for implementing and maintaining change is not there.

    Cons

    Leadership =opening door, turn over is high. The location for this hospital is extremely far from Atlanta and the compensation packages do not compare however they advertise that the compensation packages are similar - BEWARE.

    Advice to Management

    Try to think about what type of supervisor you will want
