    Pros

    Well known. Lots options. Good amount of paid vacation.

    Cons

    More politics than average. Completely dependent on government funding, not their fault of course but a consideration none the less.

    I worked at Tampa General Hospital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The Doctors, Nurses and other employees where, very smart, kind, and friendly. I truly would love to go back to work at Tampa General Hospital.

    Cons

    The only bad thing I would say is to pay the employees better and have a scholarship plan, so if the employees want to go back to school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the Management need to be more friendly, talk to the employees more, get to know more about the employees and there family.

    I worked at Tampa General Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Level 1 Trama experience, Great benefits. If you really want to, you can progress quickly up the leadership chain.

    Cons

    Leadership below CEO is questionable, especially in nursing (all levels of leadership have no formal leadership training nor care to have it). Lots of micromanaging and lack of innovation due to only promoting from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire externally for leadership positions and don't run them out when their ideas clash with yours. Be more transparent and inclusive of those not on the Exec. team.

    Pros

    The 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

    Cons

    Individual 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 ManagementAdvice

    Remove 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Things 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 ManagementAdvice

    Remember 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.
