    I worked at Walla Walla General Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the physicians, nurses, ancillary staff members were great to work with.

    Cons

    - Top down approach to management. Latest CNO would like you to think you are involved and gives you "opportunities" which are really just her key word for using and abusing until you have nothing left to offer the organization.
    - No communication with staff. Whole place operates in silos
    -Continually get rid of people who have been there quite a while (and draw the higher pay/salaries) in favor of hiring "green" staff. ---> Imagine hiring mostly new graduate nurses and not supporting them with a nurse educator. (Yes...she was let go too).
    -Look elsewhere if you value your license. You will be asked to go outside your scope of practice and take more on than you will be trained for here. Their new grad "versant" program is a total joke and waste of time.
    -Good luck getting time off - you are overworked and understaffed and every time you want to take a day off it takes an act of congress. It is not uncommon for people to work 10-14 days in a row.

    Advice to Management

    Value your existing employees - clean out the "C" suite and start over. Provide education for your clinical staff. Hire per diem employees or even travel staff so that your nursing and other staff members can actually take time off.
