    Pros

    Local, community hospital. Patient focused, motivated employees. The staff are awesome and the environment and atmosphere are great. Good benefits, hospital gym is great

    Cons

    HR dept is unprofessional and unethical at times. Management is hands off and lack any communication skills. Pay is low and raises are insultingly miniscule. No room for advancement. Nonclinical staff treated like dirt

    Advice to Management

    Policies need to be upheld on their part if they expect employees to do the same. Favoritism, pettiness and retaliation needs to be dealt with by higher-ups and handled. Recognition and rewards for good employees need to happen.

    Pros

    Nice, compassionate people that give fabulous nursing care, free close parking and pretty good benefits, nice human resources and Nurse educators

    Cons

    Managers and assistant managers don't help out, assistant managers have no leadership skills or training and are allowed to bully staff

    Advice to Management

    Require training for your managers and assistant managers, talk with your staff for suggestions on making things better not the "chosen" that the managers know will say the "right things".

    Pros

    Small office staff, so you are exposed to the big picture, but also must get into the details, and the all hands on deck philosophy at times allows for development of leadership experience as well as team work skills.

    Cons

    Small staff means significant expectations, long hours, no back-up, and office culture was toxic at times, where you had to watch your back, because you might be thrown under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    Hire upper and mid management folks who are mentors, supportive, believe in their staff, encourage and appreciate successes rather than always criticizing mistakes.

    Pros

    Free parking, friendly staff/coworkers, excellent orientation program

    Cons

    With all the current construction, employees are not getting raises for 18 months as opposed to prior yearly reviews. Still trying to get Magnet status and encouraging RNs to get BSNs, but not offering any additional compensation to do so. Tuition reimbursement could be increased.

    Pros

    I've been at Southwest for almost 10 years, and many of the people I work with have been there even longer. I think that speaks volumes about how great it is to work at Southwest. At least in my area of the hospital, there is an amazing team effort in delivering patient care. Everyone helps each other and has great pride in their work. The organization as a whole seems to give many opportunities for employees to give their input and makes you feel appreciated.

    Cons

    One of the biggest downsides in my opinion is the lack of support for advancing education opportunities. There is limited tuition assistance available. Also, as with many healthcare facilities, many areas of the hospital are often forced to work short-staffed - which is not only stressful but can be unsafe. Though sometimes helpful, many times supervisors make it seem like there is nothing that they can do to fix those situations.

    Advice to Management

    In general, keep your ears and minds open to employee feedback. Many of us would appreciate better opportunites for education and tuition assistance. Because so many employees stay at Southwest for a long time, it would be in Southwest's best interest to have its employees further their education. Also, there needs to be more consistent adherence to posted staffing grids in an effort to keep patients safe and nurses sane. Thanks.

    Pros

    SWGH is what it is. I like my job, the location, and working for a hospital in general and have made some good friends.

    Cons

    If you're a nurse, you will get treated like crap by the doctors and if you're not a nurse you will get treated like crap by everyone. Yay.

    Advice to Management

    Non nursing staff is important, too - stop treating everyone else like we don't exist.
