    Pros

    Benefits package and compensation is generally good compared to other employers within the 6 surrounding counties although the other major health systems such as Tift, Archibold, and South Georgia Regional all pay about the same. The benefits outside of direct compensation are good most importantly the gym. Technology is also advance and ahead in some respects to other similar sized facilities although the quality of care should be higher considering their market power.

    Cons

    Leadership at the top level appeared to be disconnected from the rest of the organization and the community itself. Bad reputation between the community served and hospital will always be a issue unless addressed at top levels. Also pay evaluation should be equal, those qualified will sometimes be offered less just because the organization believes the added duties do not qualify for the raise in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Remember those that are hardworking and diligent in their duties despite the pay and long hours. Also reconsider market position and focus on making community a friend not an enemy.

    Pros

    State of the art facilities, forward thinking CEO, strong financial base. Clinical practice rooted in evidence based medicine. Uses E-ICU which enhances outcomes.

    Cons

    Good old boy network exists in nursing leadership. Friendships have greater impact than talent and intellect. Able to talk a good game, but the follow through is lacking when it comes to moving nursing care forward.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate the culture. It is well-known if one articulates a vision that reflects the truth or calls into question the behavior or actions of others (even based on corporate guidelines) the consequences are swift and severe. As Quint Studer wrote, "to change people, sometimes you have to change people". Nursing leadership needs a complete overhaul in order to bring the organization forward.

    Pros

    In this lab on this evening shift, the best reason to work here is my co-workers. Everyone works as a team and everyone gets along. The supervisor is great. Also the MTs get a $2.50 shift diff. This lab has good, up to date machines.

    Cons

    Phoebe is always in trouble as they try to defeat competition from other hospitals in the 6 county area. This hospital is in trouble with the Federal Trade Commission over their acquisition of Palmyra Hospital which is about 4 blocks from here. The legal costs to fight this battle have been in the 10s of millions. Phoegbe has had 2 lay offs in the last 12 months that included lab workers.

    Advice to Management

    The upper management is good here at Phoebe but I would like to say that it is not always about the almightly dollar. Stop trying to grow bigger and more profitable and just be content with what we have. No more expansions. No more growth.
