    I have been working at Palos Community Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Fair pay. Plenty of work in community, do not have to travel too far out of area. If you thrive under micro-management it's perfect for you!

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Must always think "inside the box;" not to worry, management prefers to do all the thinking for you. Be prepared to do things the way it has always been done.

    Advice to Management

    Yes, this style has worked thus far, good luck in the future. If any innovators are driven away....

    I worked at Palos Community Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay was decent compared to other healthcare organizations. Before my departure, I was bringing in roughly 20.00 an hour.

    Cons

    Poor management skills for some managers.

    Advice to Management

    Need to dedicate some resources and money to train management on how to be an effective leader.

    I have been working at Palos Community Hospital (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hospital is in a safe neighborhood with good parking. The hospital has been newly built and is clean.

    Cons

    We have had no raises for four years. The benefit cost has increased greatly. The work load has increased as techs are not been replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Stop rounding unless you address each employees suggestion. Their is no logic to asking my opinion on a monthly basis then making no changes. Get rid of lead techs. You have far too many layers of management. Assistant Vice President in charge of the lab, core lab supervisor , assistant supervisor under core lab supervisor, reference lab supervisor, phlebotomy blood bank supervisor , second/third shift supervisor, phlebotomy assistant supervisor and three lead techs for a relatively small lab. Every 6 people do not need a supervisor. Stop promoting from within you need new ideas not passive leaders.

    Pros

    Supportive co-workers, very clean environment, excellent pay and benefits. Self scheduling.

    Cons

    Supervisors micro-manage, very low employee satisfaction, supervisors and upper management use intimidation and scare tactics to motivate employees instead of praise and recognition. High employee turn over. Reconstruction of managerial positions typically on an annual basis.

    I worked at Palos Community Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I cannot think of anything, maybe some of the benefits.

    Cons

    It was made very difficult for me to stay.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward the talent that you have in front of you. Evaluate each person honestly, and if there is a problem with an employee, please do not wait for the yearly evaluation to take place for that employee to find out, help the employee to succeed and continue to have self worth, without setting impossible goals to attain.
