    Pros

    Management genuinely tries to make hospital wide changes affecting our department like holding patients, sepsis/mi/stroke protocols.
    Management is understanding and supportive.
    Not too many cliques, lots of travel nurse to take crummy assignments!
    Opportunity for edu
    Awesome Union!

    Cons

    A lot of travel nurses that need orienting and don't know the flow of the ER.
    It's a teaching hospital full of arrogant residents.
    It's a pro doc hospital not pro nurses.
    Customer service is a huge priority.
    Changing policies every week.

    Advice to Management

    honestly...keep up the good work

    Pros

    Very accommodating to schedule, benefits are even better, and everyone is very helpful. The environment is perfect for anyone who can work here whether its in the kitchen, on the floor, or in the office

    Cons

    i do not have much to say about negativity. If anything parking is horrible. If you work during the day you have to pay for parking.

    Advice to Management

    None really. just continue to praise and correct workers so that they may know how to improve their performance.
