    Pros

    very young staff for the most part, nice looking and up-2-date structure, new add on and equipment, new grads welcomed, 12hr shifts standard, good starter hospital for new grads, ASN welcomed

    Cons

    no union for RN, new grads stay for about a year then leave for a better paying job, some units can be unesscary stressful than others because of management issues, random things being added to your job title, food cafe was just recently added and is expensive with employee discount, bring your own food. Avg new nurse makes 2k every two week. Get your experienece and get out my advice. NO 401k, just a 403b which the hospital doesnt contribute to.

    Advice to Management

    raise the register nurse pay to be competitive, some hospitals start new grads at min 70k, wph new grads is 50k, lowest paying hospital ever.

    Pros

    Management seemed to genuinely care about staff and encouraged growth and learning. Decent salary. Opportunities for continuing education available. Appreciation for all levels of staffing.

    Cons

    Seemed to be a stepping stone for many employees-- a lot of people would start here and leave after a year to go to a larger hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Find incentives for staff to remain at the hospital-- when everyone seems to be leaving to go to a bigger hospital it seems like things must be better elsewhere, whether or not it is true.

    Pros

    Benefits no Obama care, pension plan, dental coverage, vision eye glass coverage, they offer you a chance to join the credit union.

    Cons

    Management watches every move you make, it takes a long time to know whether you are approved or not for a day off, the new magnet program has everyone walking on eggshells.

    Advice to Management

    ? Put yourself in your employee's shoes, show a little respect for your workers, especially older seasoned employers that are almost ready to retire, and fearing for their jobs/pensions. I witnessed management speaking down to a hard working employee who never takes a lunch/sits at her desk and eats, just waiting to retire.
