    Pros

    Great group of dedicated nurses. Incredible teamwork.

    Cons

    A lot of requirements documenting training to meet joint commission accreditation. It tends to overshadow meaningful training and education pertinent to the job at hand.

    Advice to Management

    Get in touch with the incredible nurses who drive the excellent patient care delivered at your facilities.

    Pros

    Healthy Rewards Program is pretty good. Gainshare is also an advantage. These two things are a good draw. Health Club is also very good.

    Cons

    Say they have transparency but really do not. Eat their young environment. Definitely biased towards the old-timers. There is inconsistent accountability which is frustrating if you like your work. People who do not perform have been around forever and management will not do anything about them.

    Advice to Management

    CEO has made a lot of enemies in town which makes it hard to tell others where you work. Win/Lose Competitions do not work in a small town.

  8. Overall they are a very good employer, dedicated to the patients they serve and striving to treat their employees well.

    Pros

    Dedicated to their mission.
    Strives to be an employer of choice.
    Good benefits package.
    Promotion Opportunities for clinical staff.
    Flexible scheduling is an option.

    Cons

    I think this is a drawback for healthcare in general, but even in non-clinical positions clinicians are given preference and more promotion opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    I think it is critical to walk the talk in management. If you expect employees to act a certain way, managers must lead by example and act in that way as well.
