    I worked at Tampa General Hospital full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.

    Current Employee - Registered Nurse Medical Surgical in Tampa, FL

    I have been working at Tampa General Hospital full-time (more than an 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.

    Clinical Nurse

    I have been working at Tampa General Hospital full-time (more than 8 years)

    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.
