    ProsDepartment level staff is friendly.

    Phenomenal growth and opportunity at Northside Hospital when economy is good.

    Manager (Former Employee) North Atlanta, GA

    ProsThe opportunities for education and training are plentiful and encouraged for all levels of staff. Managerial benefits were generous and appreciated. Constant growth and plans for the future infected the employees with optimism. During good economic times there is no better place to work in healthcare Atlanta market. Administration friendly and open to ideas. Terrific non-profit organization.

    ConsAs a non-profit, the economic recession of 2008 hit Northside hard and there were many rounds of layoffs for a two year period--through early 2011. Clinical staff was kept of course, but hundreds of long term employees including Directors and Managers in non-clinical roles lost their jobs. Positions were eliminated and those job duties spread to other existing lower paid staff members.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider business mgmt. internships for graduate students. Grow your HR dept to be more diverse. Continue to push training and education for all levels of staff for their growth and the continued growth of Northside system.

    Bitter Sweet

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsThe turnover rate is so high which makes it easy to move around within the company. A good place for new grad nurses to get initial experience

    ConsManagement doesn't support the staff against patients. The patient is right no matter what. They want you to treat the patients like royalty, yet the staff are treated like crap. They are still using paper charting and the equipment is NOT on the cutting edge. The retention rate is very high because management doesn't address any of the staff concerns.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAddress staff concerns more. Happy workers will increase retention rates and also hcahps will stay through the roof.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
