    I worked at Albany Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Strong positive reputation of the employer. Great work done at the hospital. Employees in the hospital are warm and friendly.

    Cons

    Small offices associated with hospital can be problematic. Poor relationship building as an employer. It is a place where people are building or protecting their careers and little team experience. Too much drama in small office settings.

    Advice to Management

    Be more collaborative and intentionally build a team atmosphere.

    Pay RN's a competitive wage and don't just switch around ineffective management from one floor to another.
