    Pros

    Great pay, access to gym free for employees which is great. But that is about all I can see as far as this place being a great place to work.

    Cons

    Bad management. losts of favoritism, high turn overs for most of the organization

    Advice to Management

    give new employees more time to learn the job before you just throw them on their assignment alone, listen more to concern of your employees.

    Pros

    The pay is fair, coworkers are hardworking, friendly, and positive.

    Cons

    Management is disconnected from the group. Expect you to be able to complete a project with no direction, no plan on how, no effort from them, just get it done so they can cross it off their list and look good.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders lead from the front, bosses lead from the back. They're a bunch of bosses here but no leaders.

    Pros

    My coworkers are wonderful to work with and for the most part my 1st level supervisors are also. Overall good patient care. Reasonable compensation and benefits considering current economy.

    Cons

    Ex corporate managers (Kodak as example), tend to ruin the environment. Bonus incentives for management weighted to much for making budget. High turn over in my department. I'm planning on leaving after 5 years (I'll be vested). One of the most important aspects of the hospital - keeping it clean - fails miserably. At times the staff is stretched dangerously thin. Bad for both staff and patients and staff. Bad communication and poorly organized.

    Advice to Management

    To the new CEO - I am hopeful that the letters MD after your name, your good sense of business matters and your primary value of "Treat the patient like family" will influence the system in a very positive way. Watch out for ex corporate managers (Kodak as example), they may be good or they may be wolves. Change the bonus incentives for management to include a much higher weighting on patient and staff satisfaction not so much for making budget.

  6. Overall I think the company has good values, although there should be more unity.

    Pros

    You make more money as a clinical nurse I (once you hit the year mark) than strong or highland and I can't imagine accepting LESS money for the work I do

    Cons

    I don't like my specific unit and am looking to move to another. There are no unions here and every floor can make its own policies to whatever the manager sees fit within reason. And if you want to move up you have to do a ridiculous amount of work to make $1-2 more an hour. Not worth it in my opinopn.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good vacation/pro, nice gym

    Cons

    Little training, everyone seems to hate their jobs, no supervision or interest from supervisors...I did not learn anything about my place of business after 15 months, my coworkers seemed to hate their jobs and it wasn't a friendly work environment. I was never reviewed in any capacity

    Advice to Management

    Actually show some interest in others, work to have better training opportunities

    Pros

    Co-workers, supportive. Educational opportunities, Many opportunities

    Cons

    Upper management sometimes doesn't listen.

    Advice to Management

    Take advice from your employees who are directly caring for the patients. Listen to their concerns do not just sweep them under the rug.

    Pros

    A hospital is a place for healing and as such this hospital has many dedicated staff members who are the soul of the place.

    Cons

    The current crop of managers simply do not care about the mission of a hospital. They are callouss, pernicious and money driven.

    Advice to Management

    If you bury your head in the sand and continue to elevate persons with no decency nor sense of mission for what a hospital is, you will reap what you have sown.
    A hospital is not a place where widgets are created nor is it a place where services should be intentionally rushed. A hospital is a place of healing and it is supposed to be a humanitarian enterprise.
    However you have certain people in positions of power who oversee others and do not consider their staff as anything more than widget makers.
    This is morally and ethically wrong and it needs to stop.

    Pros

    Decent pay and building a thicker skin.

    Cons

    People are protected and everything does roll down hill. People who should have been out of there a long time ago are still there treating everyone like crap and ruining morale. Everyone knows it yet directors will not do anything about it. Protecting crappy people makes it a horrible place to work. This is administrative, not medical.

    Advice to Management

    check your directors and the protected people need to go!

    Pros

    Stability is the first thing that I think of.

    Cons

    Changes due to recent acquisitions

    Advice to Management

    Don't over load the staff, it creates burnout that effects employee performance.
