    I have been working at Orlando Health as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Good place to start with. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. The interim CEO is a influential leader. Thumbs up for him taking the role at this time.

    Cons

    Culture has been changing to the right direction. But it takes time to fully recover from the hits a couple of years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leaders need the momentum to take the grass-root strategy and make their staff happy. This is the key to all initiatives.

    I worked at Orlando Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent educational opportunities within organization for nurses to gain knowledge.

    Cons

    Hostile culture and disrespectful treatment from surgeons toward nurses in the peri-operative environment. Computer system - Electronic Medical Record - is cumbersome. The software needs to be improved and edited by nurses working at the bedside to reduce time spent looking at the screen and allow for "complete patient picture."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage and foster respectful professional culture and treatment toward nurses, as opposed to allowing mistreatment of nurses by physicians.

    I worked at Orlando Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Family environment, close to downtown, lifetime friendships.

    Cons

    Low pay, no room for advancement, managers put in place that have no management background.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people that are actual leaders, not people that have no management experience and you just want to pay them less than an experienced manager. Hire people based on their skills, not just because you think they're "nice".

    Pros

    Everybody at the Lucerne Pavilion at Orlando Health is a long time employee. It's like working with your family, we knew each other for so long. I was able to learn new things, and also teach new techs.

    Cons

    When the Lucerne Pavilion was getting ready to close, we were not exactly kept in the loop. I was told I would be able to keep my job because they needed me. Then a year later they didn't need me any longer. They only need one technician now. The lady still working there has been there longer than me so she got it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you should treat your long term employees with a bit more respect, and not just kick them to the curb. This is supposed to be one of the best places for women to work, and it used to be. But now you just worry everyday if you're going to be able to go to work or not. In my case it was not. When somebody does their job everyday to do the very best of their abilities for 28 years, you shouldn't just say bye with no good reason. I miss my job.

    Pros

    job stability
    Non micro managing
    Good pay
    Payroll deduction for gift shop, cafeteria, and good ticket discounts

    Cons

    If you are not salary you kind of loose out on PTO easily
    They don't pay for ANY holiday. You have to earn PTO and use it.
    Very behind in technology
    No employee moral

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay for holidays
    Pay attention to HR departments and not just the workers inside the hospitals
    Outside buildings Need upgrades
