    I have been working at Sarasota Memorial Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Self scheduling; great coworkers; PTO

    Cons

    Low pay; Terrible benefits; while this hospital does have magnet status, I'm not sure how it got it for the third time, there is no shared governance at all, management is horrible, most of the time the work environment is unsafe, work with 1 tech on a floor of 25 patients!

    Pros

    Great co-workers, most doctors are great to work with

    Cons

    Low Pay, Very poor benefits, poor management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Certain units are understaffed and make for a very unsafe work environment *8WT; while others are adequately staffed and make for a great work environment and high morale. Each floor should have the same budget to work with.
