    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere. Good networking opportunities.

    Cons

    Too many rules. Leaders focus on the size of earrings on nurses vs. better patient care and employee satisfaction.

    Pros

    Wellmont (corporate IT) has a fairly relaxed, easy-going culture, and is more than willing to forgive mistakes. It is a good place to get your foot in the industry's door.

    Cons

    Work remote/from home removed due to middle management's lack of understanding of technology. Already low salaries have been stifled (no raises), and there is very little opportunity for promotion. There is distrust and lack of cooperation between some groups within the same overall department (IT). Too many positions intended for the technically inclined are filled by technically inept, former clinicians.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring nurses to perform IT job functions. Offer higher, more competitive salaries as well as other perks (remote from home, occasionally relaxing the dress code, etc.) to keep your IT folks satisfied.

    I have been working at Wellmont Health System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wellmont consists of multiple hospitals in the tri-cities area. As such they are a large employer in the area.

    Cons

    Bristol regional has a huge turnover rate. With feeder schools pumping out fresh graduates who are desperate to find a job into the area, the desire to keep current employees happy is not a top priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about a pay raise for the people actually caring for the patients instead of the executives!

    I have been working at Wellmont Health System part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are many different opportunities for nurses. If you don't like your present job, you can apply for a different position after 6 months.

    Cons

    The insurance benefits are terrible. There is a very high deductible and you have to see only Doctor's in the Wellmont System.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees. That is the key to retention.
