    I worked at Tanner Medical Center Carrollton full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I loved working at Tanner. Senior management makes a great effort to show that they care about all employees, and have regular hospital wide meetings to keep staff informed of upcoming changes and current status of the hospital. They offer a discount on insurance premiums for meeting certain health standards (blood pressure, cholesterol, etc) and if you don't meet these standards offer online classes you can take to still receive the discount. Lots of employee events...I wish I could work here again but relocated to Atlanta and the drive is just too far. I now work for another hospital system and there are exponential differences between the two. Tanner is truly making an effort to expand and become a leader in the healthcare field. Great example of work/life balance. Raises depending on performance and yearly bonuses.

    Cons

    Challenges for me were working in a very small and conservative town (which equaled conservative coworkers!) This was very challenging at times...I find my coworkers at my current job are much more open-minded.

    It is very hard to work for this company if you are not a RN or higher. This place will stomp you down not build you up.

    Pros

    Just having a job. Nothing else I can think of.

    Cons

    Everything! They do not care about there people at all. If you can find a job somewhere else. Go to well star or to Atlanta.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage fairly. It is sad when you are told by management "surgical techs are a dime a dozen". There is no one to talk to here. Employees will not tell any one about the issues for fear of termination. There have even been RNs and Doctors threaten others with physical violence in front of Management and nothing is done!

    Pros

    Working in a non-profit healthcare setting is very rewarding. Employees and leadership really care about each other and the community. Most employees see their work not as a job but as a service to others. Bonus program that rewards employees when the organization succeeds. Tanner is financially responsible and committed to serving the community for the long-term.

    Cons

    The pressures of healthcare reform and the changing healthcare industry have made it really challenging for leadership and employees. Although it gives us an opportunity to pull together to face the challenges, it won't be easy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep communicating regularly to employees about the challenges and opportunities we face.

    I worked at Tanner Medical Center Carrollton as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    You can gain some useful experience that can help build your resume if you want to continue working in the healthcare field. Many of the people that work there are friendly and open.

    Cons

    A lot of the people working there don't optimize their potential. Most of the nurses never get in a hurry and socialize more than necessary. There were several times when I volunteered in the ER that the ER tech and I were the only people around with the nurses not being anywhere in sight or with patients. A couple of the nurses also seemed to think they were better than you since you were a volunteer and they were RN's, and many of the doctors seemed arrogant and acted like you didn't exist (which is interesting since, considering the nickname of the hospital is "killarica" instead of Villa Rica, they aren't that good at their job to begin with).

    Nepotism, dishonorable firing of employees, bad management….

    Cons

    Females do very well here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acting like Gods. When a person is terminated, they may not be able to talk to you but everyone has friends that they do talk to. I will not try to defend your poor treatment of Blacks and Hispanics. I wish I could find another job. When I do, I’m out of here!!!
