    I have been working at Beaufort Memorial Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful location. My patients are the most amazing part of my job!

    Cons

    Pay is low. Took huge pay cut when moving here. Pay raises are based on "merit", but do not even cover cost of living (let alone any extra for hard work) and are not even given annually.

    Advice to Management

    New management making too many changes, too quickly. Slow down. Listen to your employees. It feels like new management is trying to make as many changes as possible and using BMH as a stepping stone.

    I worked at Beaufort Memorial Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Made connections with countless nurses and doctors in a friendly environment. Every day was a new activity so boredom is non existent.

    Cons

    Not a high enough pay, long hours, and sometimes unnecessary tasks that you have to carry out despite there being software tools available.

    Advice to Management

    Revise how you use your employees. Let them grow into higher positions rather than higher 3rd party companies to do your high level work.

    I worked at Beaufort Memorial Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hospital is in a beautiful, coastal location in between two larger trauma centers. Great outlook if a true and accurate departmental review is done. Don't trust what leadership tells you without taking a look for yourself.

    Cons

    Very poor leadership. Worked in a department where the department head literally changed the schedule at least weekly and required employees to work back to back holidays - no rotation between employees. He's offended when employees ask why the changes are being made. Certain employees are treated unfairly in terms of the amount of work done. Increased workload times three then threatens a write up if employee is unable to complete work before shift ends. Favored employees are allowed to sit and watch Sunday games while certain others work continuously. Management will literally sit and watch certain employees work all day. The ones not working at all aren't being watched. No feedback for evaluations whatsoever other that an email to sign off. One literally has no clue how they are performing unless there is something negative to report and it's only given when it suits some other agenda. Hospital has too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Budget is off because department heads create unnecessary positions that aren't needed for a hospital that size. Cliques throughout.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees well. Stop the favoritism. Hire qualified employees instead of hiring because of personal friendships etc. The hospital will run more efficiently when the right people are placed in the right areas. Overworked staff is not efficient nor does it save money. Employees that are unhappy usually are because of bad management. What leadership expects is what the employees expect as well. Be consistent and allow feedback without retaliation.

    I have been working at Beaufort Memorial Hospital part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good teamwork and adequate resources are a big plus.

    Cons

    Much of the local populace treat this hospital as a primary care unit, particularly the emergency room which consequently becomes overwhelmed rather quickly with non-urgent and chronic issues.

    Advice to Management

    Increase education among the local community regarding when it is appropriate to go to emergency room and when it is appropriate to see a primary care provider.
