    Good company, not much opportunity for advancement without spending more on education.

    I have been working at Palmetto Health

    Pros

    Good work conditions and managers.

    Cons

    Pay is below national average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nurses are the fabric of the health care system. Pay them what they are worth not just administration.

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

    Pros

    Great workforce, and terrific opportunities for promotions. Palmetto Health likes to help their employees grow and I noticed that as several of my fellow employees grew up the ladder.
    Training was very helpful, as it lasted a few days instead of a day or two. That gave me adequate enough time to adjust to the position so I could be a competent employee.

    Cons

    Some employees are rude and selfish, but you generally find that everywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Possibly consider compensation or other benefits based on employee's output and peer reviews.

    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.

    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.
