    Pros

    Great place to work. Good support from Senior Management. Good physicians. Supportive HR Team. Good work schedule and benefits. Very family centered employer.

    Cons

    Physician group needed more support from hospital executive management during a period of rapid growth and system platform changes. This has happened since my departure.

    Very short staffed, more travelers than staff RNs

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

    Pros

    Teaching hospital, with very good doctors and ancillary staff.

    Cons

    Real lack of leadership at the department level. No clear path to advancement. Having a degree or certification does not appear to be relevant to being in management. No accountability for management, yet severe penalties for staff that challenge the status quo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a real examination of why there is so much staff turnover. Currently new grads and travel RNs outnumber experiences staff RNs.

    Great hospital for patients, but....

    I have been working at Palmetto Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I love the values of the hospital (treat each patient like you would like yourself or your family to be treated), and the patient care at Baptist is second-to-none. The doctors are fabulous and they provide very good care.

    Cons

    I work at one of the Dr.'s offices where the workload is sometimes overwhelming. In addition, although most of my co-workers are wonderful to work with, there are those "bad eggs"--you all know who I'm talking about--the toxic ones that have a negative attitude, continuously gossip, have no patient empathy, and basically suck the joy right out of your day, perhaps because they're so miserable.

    I have been working at Palmetto Health part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Training was long but very informative and compensation is fair. This company is growing as they have just opened up their 3 hospital in the Columbia, SC area. Having no experience and venturing into the healthcare arena has been very interesting to say the least. Your are encouraged to learn and ask questoins. There appears to be great personal growth opportunity here but only time will tell. Great flexibility with PTO and scheduling.

    Cons

    Too early to tell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to stay involved with the day to day and learning to your staff.
