    I worked at Akron General Medical Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hourly pay and medical benefits.

    Cons

    No advancement/NO leadership/no universal enforcement of policy. Policy is selectively enforced. No sense of direction with leadership that has no qualities to lead in the first place. They will promote from the outside and very rarely promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and universally enforce policy to all employees; management and hourly employees. Lead by the adage "do as I do not do as I say..."

    I worked at Akron General Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I can't say enough good things about working at AGMC. I have always regretted leaving. I worked my way through school while there and they were good about working around my schedule so I did not lose hours. Great boss, good department.

    Cons

    I had a tough time moving up until I went to school to be an RN and then I ended up in a job that required the RN but quite honestly should have been done by a business person.

    Advice to Management

    Think broader. Sometimes having a medical degree doesn't get you through moving the hospital forward.

  8. "If micromanagement, phony upper management and a sub-par hospital is your thing, this place is perfect"

    I worked at Akron General Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only perk is the employee gym.

    Cons

    In order to be successful here, you must drink the kool aid and be a lemming. If you have any ideas outside of the box of upper management, you will not succeed here. Not only that, the hospital environment is very dirty. I personally saw some of the filthiest things in this hospital I've ever seen.

    Advice to Management

    Open up your tiny little minds.

    Pros

    Their benefits were fantastic! The health care was 100%

    Cons

    They have absolutely no heart. After working there almost 20 years, I was laid-off. They just don't care.

    Advice to Management

    They only cared about their friends.
