    Pros

    The job is data processing and is very easy work.

    Cons

    It is processing and you are required to review over so many documents an hour. The job is repetitious and can be quite boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The job is very repetitious and you are suppose to sit and review the charts in a chair for 8 hours. The job should entitle some kind of movement.

    I worked at Tampa General Hospital full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and access to excellent healthcare within all specialties are offered to employees. TGH is a Level 1 Trauma Center / Teaching Facility partnering with the University of South Florida and as Medical Staff, you are exposed to a vast amount of learning opportunities on a daily basis.

    Cons

    From the medical staff side of this facility, Mid-Level Management to Department Managers are often promoted to these positions because of who they know and not what they know or their ability to lead by example... They do NOT practice what they preach, are extremely quick to criticize and rush to judgement without hearing all of those involved in the most minor issues. I, personally, was only involved in one issue over my many years of employment at TGH but, was witness to many, many of these types of minor issues and the majority of them were handled with poor managerial judgement leading to unjust disciplinary action on exemplary employees but, if you socialize with some of the managers outside of the work environment, lets just say that, unfortunately,, a blind eye will be turned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate your management candidates with common sense. When a multitude of employees within a department complete the yearly "anonymous" survey of the department management and manager and the survey is resulted as poor, a reasonable conversation without fear of retaliation from the managers should be had. Ms. Dena Nelson, who is the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Is one of the very best examples of what a true leader should be; she is very approachable and will listen to your ideas or concerns with honest interest and will know you by name when she greets you as you pass her in the hallways. TGH desperately needs more professional leaders like her...

    I worked at Tampa General Hospital

    Pros

    They have the money to pay a great salary. Name recognition, it's so big the name resounds throughout the area as a top facility.

    Cons

    Can you say miro management at its finest. Favoritism, old executives that should retire. Terrible culture of distrust and treating staff like dirt from upper level management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember where you came from. Listen to the people you hire and stop looking for robots. Stop making staff take the fall for executive level decisions and failures.

    I have been working at Tampa General Hospital full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    1. Opportunities to switch specialties
    2. Opportunities to do research
    3. Clinical ladder
    4. Good benefits
    5. Working with smart, diligent people
    6. Opportunities for OT, if you want it. No mandatory OT.

    Cons

    1. Salary is low
    2. Employee turnover is high
    3. The environmental services department can't keep up with all the cleaning that has to be done, hence, much of the hospital looks dirty.
    4. Chronically understaffed
    5. As a new nurse, you have very little choice about where they put you when you are hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you staff your hospital adequately, many of the problems you bemoan will magically go away, and patient satisfactions scores will skyrocket because your staff will not be so stressed and overworked.

    Pros

    They are very good about employing from internal candidates.

    Cons

    Low pay. Management tears you apart to justify not giving good raises because of the hospital budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to focus on achievements instead of tearing people down in order to justify the awful raises.

    Pros

    Wonderful place for nurses to work especially if you get involved in committees that help shape the practice of nursing.

    Cons

    Difficult to advance in certain cases. Parking is expensive and the new uniform policy is a little restrictive. At least they will pay for the first two!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to involve employees in decisions that affect the practice at the bedside.
