    Pros

    I like the money I am making here. I think it's very reasonable for the amount of work that I do.

    Cons

    I think there's too much work to do, they are not very strict with tardiness and people in my dept calls out a lot & never get it trouble for it. I think they should be more strict when it comes to attendance because we are taking care of patients here.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management are friendly especially the CEO Jerry Faulks is down to earth.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits for a small town.

    Cons

    Politics as usual. Upper management is not very receptive to ideas from the "commoners". State of the art buildings cost in the millions and not quite sure how this hospital can have enough revenue to keep it up.

  6. Fine place if you need employment

    Pros

    Awesome place to work. Very satisfying, and a great company.

    Cons

    Very stressful work environment. 12 hours mostly on your feet. Huge decision making.

    Advice to Management

    Would like more employee appreciation for Job well done. Leadership is very much "On their game" at WGHS.

  9. WGHS, a GREAT place to work.

    Pros

    The people and the sense of community are the best reasons to work here. As is normal in healthcare, salaries go the the clinically astute personnel, but everyone here is treated like an integral part of this community. Sure there are bad managers who treat employees poorly, but they are being discovered and rooted out. A healthy hospital staff starts with a happy workforce, and WGHS is doing their honest best to make that a reality.

    Cons

    The pay for non-clinical staff is less than ideal. Some of the top ranges for my position are right around the starting figures at other companies. Also, managers do not get merit increases, so there is little incentive for someone to want to move up to a management position.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management is already listening to feedback from their employees.
