    Pros

    Benefits are wonderful, they are not worth it though

    Cons

    People and hours, who can expect someone to work an 16 hour shift continuously... with travel and the crappy parking scenario it means work actually is 18-19 hours. ridiculous

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees. care about their lives. understand that you work an 8-5 but they work 12 or 16 hour shifts

    Pros

    The culure at this organization is based on good old school values. Employees are treated very well and are compensated acordingly. They have a cash balance pension plan in addition to matching 403b.

    Cons

    The upward mobility might be a bit slow because turn over is very small. Most leaders have been in their positons for more than 5 years and probably plan on retiring there.

    Pros

    The staff was very patient focused and most RN's had the team work mentality. Most coworkers would help each other out without even having to ask. This hospital brought in happy individuals that made working there a pleasant experience.

    Cons

    Parking for the employees can be a nightmare with having to park off site and ride the metro train or take the TCH shuttle. Although, I think the higher pay in the med center is to offset these annoyances.

    Advice to Management

    Keep us the good work of recruiting such pleasant, patient-focused employees.

    Pros

    I like my hours, don't work weekends, pay at this point is good, paid time off is great, I basically get whatever day I request off (because of the dept and team/manager I work with) always full stocked coffee supplies ;)

    Cons

    Very stressful, management expectations are really high but never enough in the budget to hire more staff to help with all these crazy expectations, patients complaining about wait times gets tiring. They reward us with jean day! We don't want jean day give us money or gift cards! Company is stingy considering how much profit they make. Too many employees act like they are managers, doctors think they can manage as well which confuses everyone because everyone isn't on the same page. Very inconsistent.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade all computers and faster internet. It makes it hard to work with such slow running systems. Cleaning crew never cleans, place is really dirty. IS help desk is useless! They make too much money to never help resolve issues. Reward employees a lot more with free lunch, gift cards, better raises, hire more staff if you want 100% scores, expand outpatient clinics with more patient rooms. Hire better financial counslers who ACTUALLY want to do their job.
