    I worked at Parkland Health Center full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, friendly co-workers, close to home

    Cons

    If you don't have some type of degree, you are looked down upon. The managers of the departments are constantly in meetings so that they are not they enough to manage their departments. The pay is too low for the clerical staff. The only people who get praise is the higher up employees not the ones that are doing the crap work. Managers are only hired if they have a degree. It doesn't matter about experience at all. Another major con is the fact that even though your doctor has an office in the same building, they are no longer allowed to be your doctor in the hospital. You have to see the hospitalist that has no idea of your medical history.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You don't need that much training. If you do, then you shouldn't be a manager.

    I worked at Parkland Health Center as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great learning environment and exposure to many disease processes

    Cons

    Stress is very high, training is by licensed nurses and not professional instructors, will have to sign a contract of money to pay back to hospital without getting a degree. The money is as much as tuition at a college.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach on the job training long enough to be a safe worker.
