    I have been working at Parkland Health & Hospital System full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dedication to the mission - to serve the medically underserved population. Most employees are true believers in caring for others.

    Cons

    The isolationism, arrogance, and individualism so apparent in the C-suite. Inherent bureaucracy associated with any initiative. Lack of strategic planning. Talent Management's obvious lack of appreciation for employees with many years of service and history as new folks are hired in at much higher rates than the true employee historians.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp Talent Management's biased compensation scale. C-suiters - come out of your admin tower and walk around. Have a presence in the halls and in the units. You might just learn something.

    Do not have nurses back and quickly throw you under the bus when it's their fault.

    I worked at Parkland Health & Hospital System

    Pros

    People are great and friendly most of the time. Nurses work well together

    Cons

    Not helpful or accommodating to staff. Everyone is to fend for themselves with no help from management. And they break confidentiality all the time. Too many patients, not enough staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have your nurses backs
