    Pros

    Many nice people and some very committed employees. Community hospital. Many areas are quality driven and trying to do the right thing.

    Cons

    A lot of changes in management in the past 2.5 years. The C-suite has had almost a complete turnover. Higher than normal turnover in other areas as well. Poor raises, unfair merit system. Promotions are sometimes based on favoritism rather than skill or talent.

    Transparency. Fairness to all. Communication.

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

    Pros

    Excellent Patient care and Patient Focus.
    Pay rate is adequate and hours are comfortable.
    Detailed and organized Training.

    Cons

    Staff is not supportive specifically management.
    ***Cut-throat training environment.***
    Management acts first and asks questions later.
    Management does not see the small picture, only the big picture. They should be able to see both.

    Advice to Management

    Work on a having a supportive staff who can understand and help other employees in their time of need. Although it is understandable the primary focus is the patient, The staff needs just as much attention in order to thrive. An employee should not feel persecuted or alone in a working environment that revolves around caring for others. And most importantly before you act and start terminating employees, at least sit down and ask for an explanation. You may be surprised to see that what you thought is not really a fact. Be humble.

    I worked at Bristol Hospital full-time

    Pros

    -Hands off management style in IT
    -Staff are awesome
    -Tuition reimbursement
    -Decent paid time off
    -Organization truly cares about patients

    Cons

    -Difficult to advance within organization
    -Salaries are about 10-15k less then other similar sized companies
    -No bonuses
    -Minimal salary increases (2% tops if your lucky)

    Advice to Management

    Provide extra funding to lower level managers for bonuses/raises to distribute among staff. This will give you the ability to retain key employees who keep day-today operations flowing. Focus the companies operations on its core competencies and do not copy other large healthcare organizations as the company is too small to compete.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Bristol Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Close to home, easy parking for offsite employees, tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Raises non-existent, open door policy looks good on paper, but does not exist in reality. Benefit costs go up regularly but raises do not come anywhere near to what is lost in vacation/sick time,disability,or exorbitant co-pays. Employees are expected to work harder than ever for no raise or even a sincere thank you. Meanwhile, CEO's salary is published, causing terrible moral within hospital at the one sidedness of management.

    Advice to Management

    Have a meeting with long term employees to find insight on why employees both long term and short term are so unhappy.
