    Pros

    Great staff, knowledgeable, benefits were good, salary (though low) was OK

    Executives don't understand what is really happening
    Not enough resources at all levels because of nickel and diming, though apparently the Sr Execs get a hot lunch everyday???
    No chance for advancement based on knowledge and performance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come and do as you say.....more rounding with staff, listen, have a vision, spend money wisely

    Not the best place for career advancement if you are not a medical professional

    Pros

    If you only want a 'job' then it is a good place.

    Cons

    The PTO is inadequate as there is no separate sick leave.
    Professionals who are not medical staff are given few avenues for career development. Be very aware that it is almost impossible to move up, either in title or salary.
    Policies, if they exist, are applied selectively, not unilaterally, which devalues them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An effective HR is adept at identifying, recruiting, managing, developing, retaining and compensating people to help build a successful organization. This does not describe the QMC HR environment.

    Pros

    Good staff.Good environment. The kind of place you can enjoy coming to work at every day. One of the leading hospitals in the Pacific Rim.

    Cons

    A lot of internal politics. More than at most companies in Hawaii. Very top down leadership with personalities more important than quality results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to more than your favorite source to get the whole picture.

    Pros

    The benefits were great and reasonable for employees. The Medical Center provided special appreciation for employees during the Holidays.

    Cons

    Nurse managers mistreat the staff nurses and show favoritism regularly. Early comments on managers "habitually abusing the staff nurses" is factual. Management and leadership needed not be so dogmatic and rigid in their treatment of the staff nurses who work so hard. Rules and policies are provided as guidance and set standards for practice. Managers need to understand and know hospital policies as well as understand some of the local culture of the community of Hawaii.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nursing Management Leadership at Queen's need more training on fairness and learn integrity, honesty and treat other employees with all fairness and respect.
