    Pros

    People care about each other. Friendly atmosphere. Desire to be the best. Well managed from a business perspective. Opportunities to grow. Good future potential in light of the coming merger with University of Maryland Medical System.

    Cons

    Too lenient at times with poor behaviors. Too focused on growing from within. Need to bring in more outside people to bring in new ideas.

    Pros

    Very supportive and encouraging of continuing education and home/work balance. Flexible with scheduling.

    Cons

    Some charge nurses need a little more experience. Team members need to work on gossip, as with all workplaces. Team members should hold each other accountable more often.

    Advice to Management

    Charge nurses should be experienced in the field in which they are running charge to be effective resources and mentors. A mentor program for team members is a great idea, with coaching for experienced nurses.

    Pros

    Both hospitals are close to home. My particular department head is wonderful to work for/with. Schedule has been easy to change as issues come up in everyday life.

    Cons

    I have worked within Upper Chesapeake for many years. Prior to that I worked or was educated in Baltimore Metro hospitals. Upper Chesapeake management seems poorly organized and focuses on small matters rather than the big picture of what is going on within the hospitals on a daily basis. This is compared to previous experiences in metro hospitals. New blood with more expansive knowledge base would be a plus in areas of managment.

    Advice to Management

    As it pertains to management: hire outside, not from within. New ideas and broader minds are needed. Please stop the gossip and get the the bottom of a problem 1st before making assumptions. Gossip in the upper ranks is disappointing. Conduct yourselves in a professional manner as you encourage all of us to do.
