    Pros

    The cleveland clinic merger is making AGMC better, offering more resources, including more employee benefits, and the name gives it more prestige. The AGMC community is very friendly and overall its a great place to work.

    Cons

    Paid time off includes holidays and sick time all in one bank. There are no maternity leave benefits. Some of the facilities need updating.

    I have been working at Akron General Health System full-time

    Pros

    Great work environment with a lot of responsibility.
    You get a lot of freedom as long as you fulfill your job duties.
    Staff is very nice and treat the officers well.
    A lot of over time potential with decent pay.

    Cons

    There aren't a lot of career opportunities. Once you land a position, you're stuck there until another position opens up.
    You'll work every holiday if you're scheduled days falls on that day, but that's to be expected.
    Calling off is difficult because you show up to relieve someone else. Your or they will get stuck at work if an officer doesn't show up.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest keeping a fully staffed group of officers. Mandating officers on their scheduled days off can get old and impacts a good work life balance.

    I worked at Akron General Health System part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A team approach to nursing, everyone willing to help each other with difficult patients. Other than that, the pro is.... You made it through your shift alive and not beaten up!! You were told to keep the patients out of seclusion despite their dangerous behavior!! We had criminals mixed in with depressed people mixed in with someone's grandma!! What a great set up!!!

    Cons

    If you take this job and get beat up by a patient.... The hospital will tell you "When you took this job you should have known you had the chance to get hurt". While working here, they began accepting criminals who should have gone to jail, but showed up on our front step instead. One day, a prisoner arrived and beat his nurse until she was unrecognizable! The hospital hid behind their corporate lawyers! This poor nurse has PTSD and can't return because of how severely she was assaulted. The hospital knew how dangerous this floor was, but refused to put security on the floor because of how the "psychiatric patients would feel" Nurses were constantly begging for a security guard to sit up on the floor for protection!!! Taking this job would be a big mistake!! Go work with a population that is less dangerous because you will not be given compensation for any injury .....so it is not worth it!!! Let someone else get their livelihood taken away!!
