Hospital Great Individual Dpeartments are poor

Anesthesia Tech (Current Employee)
Tampa, FL

I have been working at Tampa General Hospital full-time

ProsThe hospital truly cares for its employees. They do many things to support a positive environment within the hospital. Tries hard to make it a great place to work. C suite managment is outstanding

ConsIndividual departments however are terrible. They are often run by managers that have no clue how to manage or do the job of the personell they are managing. They spend large amounts of time in meetings which makes it difficult to allow them to manage. Senior level managment doe snothing to support their employees at all which is rather disappointing. The pay is way on the low end and they constantly use the benefits as a crutch but the benefits are only a fraction better than other hospitals.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemove the managers that are just bidding their time till retirement. Stop making the managers attend unnecessary meetings and allow them to manage. The majority of "Directors" are poor managers and should go. Do a serious audit of the managers and find out what the employees truly think.

RN

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
Tampa, FL

I have been working at Tampa General Hospital full-time for more than 10 years

ProsExcellent benefits given to full time employees. Many opportunities to increase your pay and highly flexible scheduling.

ConsThings are always changing (or being improved). Its difficult to remember everything expected of you all the time when it is always being changed.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember to encourage your employees on what they do right. Utilize gentle reminders to remind staff of recent changes, and focus more on those things that your staff have done well.

Some great worker bees with horrible management.

IT Analyst (Current Employee)
Tampa, FL

I have been working at Tampa General Hospital full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe hospital is an exciting place to be akin to a small city. Many "lines of business" and plenty of occupations to work in. Some very nice, caring people.

ConsIn IT, the name of the game is "play the party line." It's not about merit, skills, or knowledge, but sucking up and riding the gravy train that is the hospital doing well financially. They would never make in the non-profit world where ROI matters. IT management here is not about talent but seniority and favoritism.

Advice to Senior ManagementIn IT, get out of your offices, get away from the hospital, and start learning about how the rest of the world works. Actually, start learning the basics of IT outside of pushing a Powerpoint presentation.

Very pleased with my choice to work as RN in varied ICU's at TGH.

Registered Nurse (Former Employee)
Tampa, FL

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

ProsIf you work hard and prove yourself you will be developed (specialty training, charge position, etc.) by management.

ConsPay is lower than most. But I believe the acuity of the patients and resources TGH has make up for it.

Advice to Senior ManagementFor lower management.... Learn how to manage... Most don't understand how to develop or even discipline employees. Hopefully they can then work on becoming leaders.
For upper management..... The manager greatly influences the culture of the unit. Learn from the great managers and made timely decisions on poor ones. No "scores" will change if the manager is weak and not respected by the staff. Also, there is a huge need for employee development or re-development. From new hires to senior staff, all areas could be improved. My main issue is with senior/experienced staff's poor attitudes. Problems are usually ignored until it's grounds for termination or the employee decides to move on. Until this"scores"are hurt, moral is low, and ultimately patients don't receive the best care possible.
