    I worked at Peninsula Regional Medical Center full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    For the most part, co-worker take a team approach.

    Cons

    Office culture is not good. Morale is not good. Pay per hour reduced, benefits reduced, anything that is easy to eliminate without impacting the benefits of executive staff has been reduced. Long time employees are somehow manipulated until they are fired instead of allowed to retire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put yourself in the shoes of those who are on the front line. The community hears of the abuse of the staff and will eventually look elsewhere for services due to the disrespect of said employees and the poor morale as a result.

    Former Employee - CNA in Salisbury, MD

    I worked at Peninsula Regional Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you have the necessary skills/background, then there are many different areas that are available to you. Oncology, surgical, hemodialysis, joint replacement, cardiology, radiology etc. Plenty of areas to learn in if you get bored.

    Cons

    Favoritism runs rampant. Very difficult to get hired unless you know someone in the organization. Higher ups claim to be all about patient care, but their actions do not support their words. RNs are constantly overworked, and given more patients than they can adequately attend to. Recently dropped their retirement matching program completely. Raised the cost of benefits without improving their quality. Cut allotment of vacation days across the board. Yet, there was no commensurate reduction in pay from the VPs/CEO/COO etc. Layoffs. False promises about tuition payment. Low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave, or sell. You are too out of touch with the reality of the day to day stressors.

    Former Employee - CNA

    I worked at Peninsula Regional Medical Center full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of the staff was helpful/friendly, 3 day work week for those who did 12-hour shifts, good benefits, being able to help patients/advance in skills

    Cons

    Some of the staff (nurses) wanted you to do everything, no job security (a lot of layoffs),

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being money hungry. Stop wasting money on over the top designs/upgrades that half the patients can't even use (ICU for example), listen to your employees, stop laying off then open several positions

    I have been working at Peninsula Regional Medical Center

    Pros

    Taking care of patients. Some of the co-workers. 3-day work week (for some). Benefits

    Cons

    Pay. Budget cuts = MANY people getting laid off with little to no notice and vacation time getting taken away. Spending millions (and upper management making plenty) on useless things, but caregivers not getting paid much, and are losing their jobs. Getting presented with a plan to save millions within years, promising that no one will be drastically affected, then squeezing that time frame down to months, AND LAYING PEOPLE OFF. Basically, NO JOB SECURITY. Yet, they're still hiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come out of your offices and talk to us. Don't send emails or pop up with mandatory meetings which contain life-changing news, which of course you're not there for.

    I have been working at Peninsula Regional Medical Center full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    extensive opportunities for learning - Evidence Based Practice conference, connections with local universities, ease of transitioning to other positions to keep my practice "fresh"

    Cons

    not yet magnet - it is going to take awhile to change the culture engrained. I would like to see more on-campus nursing/collaborative regional conferences.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep trying - it is so much better than it was 20 years ago. Stay transparent and remember that others are watching you role model excellent behavior

    Pros

    Being part of an organization filled with the best and the brightest. They excel operationally and functionally at providing the best patient care.

    Cons

    Pay could be slightly better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove some of the institutionalized employees that cast a negative light. Performance is not the issue, but they tend to ruin the team dynamics.

    Pros

    Forward thinking in new technologies and adopting new care methods. A rather comprehensive hospital for being hours from a metropolitan area.

    Cons

    Lack of education promotion, often removing employee benefits or cutting out vacation days for budget crunches. Pay not equal to surrounding hospitals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making promises you wont deliver.
