    I worked at Perry Memorial Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly staff, very helpful and courteous employees throughout the hospital. Reasonably modern physical facility. Mostly excellent benefits, but continuing education is a notable omission. Very easy going overall, but perhaps too much so.

    Cons

    A strong culture of complacency/non-growth. No opportunities for promotion except via death/firing, and the senior management is young enough that they can all stay in place at least another 5 to 10 years. The management structure is a very rigid hierarchy with thick-walled, secretive silos within every department. The two primary management philosophies are "We've always done it this way" and "Not my idea."

    Advice to Management

    Break down the silos. Cut the number of regular managers' meetings by 2/3s and develop ad hoc, interdepartmental teams to focus on specific tasks. Set goals, advertise them broadly, and seek input from the line employees. Eliminate all the trite "morale boosters" and offer employees the chance to excel (or fail). Work with the physicians proactively rather than waiting for complaints and then punishing staff.
