    Pros

    The atmosphere is always upbeat, coworkers are nice, and the food is really good in the cafeteria.

    Cons

    Horrible pay. Boss was only qualified on paper and her people skills and work ethic were terrible. There was nobody I could go to about her actions because they all stick together.

    Advice to Management

    Please do a better job paying people with experience what they're worth. Micromanaging will get you no where but employee-less.

    Pros

    Nice coworkers and direct managers.

    Cons

    Set schedules; inappropriate staffing; inappropriate patients in certain patient areas (example--C-Diff patients on Mother Baby Unit who had no ob or gyn diagnosis--house supervisor told us to "just keep that door shut); horrible food (Sodexo); CEO is a piece of work--she is rude and condescending--overall, not a good place to work for anyone who wants a life.

    Pros

    Close to home with plenty of parking. Good medical benefits and time off. Flexible with time off for doctor's appointments. Colleagues are friendly.

    Low pay for most. Political atmosphere when it comes to promotions.

    Update job descriptions to match the work actually being done and then pay accordingly.

    I have been working at West Jefferson Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    WJMC brings a sense of family to the workplace. I work with a community that I feel connected to. This drives me to excel in my job role and continually seek ways to improve the organization.

    Cons

    The management structure is antiquated. Leadership gives me no confidence that they are taking the business in a positive direction. Constant change to our environment is poorly thought out, if at all. Patient care suffers greatly from incompetence.

    Advice to Management

    It is my opinion that the business is blind to industry best practices and lacks the ability to adapt to modern methodologies that keep us current and able to compete with other healthcare systems.

    It's all the people that work at a hospital that determines the quality of the hospital-West Jeff is a quality hospital.

    I worked at West Jefferson Medical Center part-time

    Pros

    The best thing at West Jefferson Medical Center is the people who work here, in all departments. There is less turnover here than other area hospitals, rarely, if ever, are agency nurses used. Patients get better care because almost everyone is very familiar with the hospital and the way it operates.

    Cons

    I would like more CE available concerning critical care at the hospital. Doesn't everyone want higher salaries and better benefits?

    Advice to Management

    We need more ancillary positions in the critical care areas. To have an extra set of hands on the other side of the bed improves patient care and is more efficient!
