    Pros

    The work environment is team oriented within the coding department.

    Cons

    Its challenging when your leader does not have a complete understanding of medical coding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The individuals that lead the departments need to have an understanding of the jobs that they over see. They also needs to understand the ethics that are taken when certain certifications are obtained.

    Pros

    Defiantly patient focused. I enjoyed helping the patients. I liked the easy commute back and forth to work.

    Cons

    They don't treat their employees well at all.
    I left the Neuro office. The manager was more interested In being friends with her employees than implementing rules for ALL.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It never pays to be friends with the employees & give special treatment!

    Former Employee - Staff Nurse in Harrisburg, PA
    Former Employee - Staff Nurse in Harrisburg, PA

    I worked at PinnacleHealth System full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    -Great nursing mentors on the floor.
    -Wide variety of patient experience to be had.
    -Support in obtaining certifications and continuing education.
    -Uniforms to distinguish staff roles easily.
    -Magnet hospital, lots of nursing empowerment.
    -Frequent nursing in-services that are staff driven.
    -Teaching hospitals are great places to learn!

    Cons

    -Not a lot of cultural understanding or support among some members of staff for the military dependent lifestyle. I found that this was an inter-department issue and over heard disparaging talk regarding military spouses and how frequently they move, "why do we hire them anyway?" sort of thing.
    -Working the popular day/night swing shift could be rough, runs of days or nights could be as short as a week each with an expected turn around time of ending a night shift Monday morning and being back for day shift on Tuesday.

    Excellent patient outcomes in multiple specialties. Excellent nurse patient ratios. Competitive benefits. Great teamwork from all disciplines.

    Salary and benefits could improve. Many areas of nursing is micromanaged. Annual evaluations are not really based on individual performance. Higher management looks at surveys and ratings instead of individual performance outcomes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make nurses salaries more competitive with area hospitals.
