    I worked at Sharp Memorial Hospital

    Pros

    The best thing about working at sharp was the diversity of cases and the wonderful surgeons

    Cons

    Management only focuses on the negative and are completely detached from what is really happening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a more active role in actually managing your staff instead of relying on second hand information and maybe try thinking outside of the box for a change maybe then you would have better staff retention.

    I worked at Sharp Memorial Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Staff are great. Beautiful hospital. Treat employees well and staff training is a priority. Emergency room is efficient and well run.

    Cons

    No tuition reimbursements for nurses. Pay could be better. Benefits were fine for me but have hear others with medical expenses have trouble with the limits of the HMO insurance.

    I worked at Sharp Memorial Hospital

    Pros

    Supervisors are helpful and accessible
    Learn a variety of holistic/alternative treatments

    Cons

    Administrative staff is disrespectful and sometimes just plain mean
    Interns take on a big case load and aren't paid/compensated or even appreciated
    Office space is insufficient- everyone (sometimes around 5 interns at a time) are crammed into one small office space
    If you work there as an intern, there is very little chance you'll get hired on as a full-time employee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat the interns better. if you can't pay them, at least make them feel like an important part of your team

    Sharp memorial hospital has a competent staff with good conduct who take care of their patients and trains their employees to better themselves and increase their knowledge about medical field and services.
