    I worked at Shands Jacksonville part-time

    Pros

    You will always be busy: there is lots to see and learn. Pretty good pay for RNs. Lots of opportunities to move around if you don't like your work area.

    Cons

    Some of the patients can be pretty difficult to deal with. Some of the management can be out of touch and harsh to employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to connect with and appreciate your nurses more, and turnover won't be as high

    Pros

    Great co workers and employees on the lower levels overall.

    Cons

    The lack of advancement of employees who are seasoned and know the jobs but are not given the chance and are overlooked for management positions. They will hire from outside the company before they advance someone from the inside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip on the rouge managers and supervisors who bully and intimidate their employees .

    I have been working at Shands Jacksonville part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good experieince, lots of really sick patients

    Cons

    Nursing Management all talk. Stop acting like their jobs are on the line if they make good on staffing promises. Have stated conditions will improve; ICU units continue to be dumps, dirty and nasty. Clean equipment would be nice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying to staff. If you say you want employee involvement, do not fire nurses who speak up.

    The patients are the best in the world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a eye on your management and how they treat the little people. They take all the credit but we do all the work.
