    Pros

    TGH I.T. is largely a very open, collaborative department that fosters teamwork. The CIO and CMIO have changed while I've been here, and that's been a good thing. The team I'm currently on is possibly the best workgroup I've ever had the privilege of working with. Pay and vacation time is good, benefits are good, not great. My time here hasn't been all sunshine and roses, but the majority has been decent.

    Cons

    That said, different teams within I.T. have vastly different ideas of what "teamwork" and "communication" mean. There are still members of management who are snakes, and will not hesitate to ruin your life if you don't want the same things they want. Several of this type of management have left TGH and made the dept. a better place for it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the track you've been on for the past year or two, the department has improved under our "new" CIO and CMIO.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to gain experience in specialized areas. Burn, trauma, NICU etc...

    Cons

    There's politics everywhere.... But this place takes the cake. Way too much!! And upper management makes decisions and has zero clue what its like in "the trenches." And the new CEO...well.....you'll have to see for yourself

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your offices.

    Pros

    Excellent facility with quality care providers. Information Technology department one of the best run I've had the pleasure of working with. All in all the implementation went well. McDonald's and Starbucks on-site.

    Cons

    Having to park at remote location and shuttled in to work. Realize the parking garage is for visitors but wouldn't worry as much if allowed to park onsite.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the superb overall treatment of employees. I had the opportunity to speak with an employee who incurred a huge medical bill from an accident. The hospital actually provided him with employment and he's been very satisfied with the opportunity. That is the way to manage people. Fabulous.

    Pros

    Excellent team work at TGH. People have a pleasant attitude for the most part and enjoy working there. There are a couple of notorious units but overall, it's a good healthcare facility to work for.

    Cons

    The pay is not competitive. Even with the raise they gave me to make them more competitive, it still was not competitive. The parking situation at TGH is a total nightmare. Be prepared to waste part of your day shuttling around.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your flexibility. Work with people in tough situations in order to keep them on board. Everyone knows what the notorious units are - go clean house for heaven's sake!
