Many opportunities to switch departments because you only have to stay in your position 6 months. Also if working day shift is important to you, people can quickly get day shift position because many people switch departments quickly and there are...

    Cons

    Heavy into middle management, which includes hiring/promoting people with little experience to "lead" staff. There is a huge disconnect between staff and management and a generally feeling of "what the hell just happened?" Management does not support staff and there is a sense that they don't know or care to know anything about what's important to you. Morale is low, and worsening by the day. Great co-workers are the...

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your staff. Appreciate what they do on a day to day basis. A little investment of time into building a relationship with each person goes a long way. Address concerns/problems before they become huge problems. Follow up with employees regarding their concerns. Don't play favorites with people you are friends with outside of work.

    Pros

    Great education and training for staff, very good at solving workplace problems and preventing similar future issues. Caring work environment, flexible schedule.

    Most RN's start out on night shift, which is typical for the industry. Working weekends and holidays required, of course.

    I worked at Bronson Methodist Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some nice people, staff work hard

    Cons

    No negotiation on pay, like to say "we are like family" until you need to change something. Fire you if you stand up for what is right and fair. No room for promotion as they have system directors. Work long hours for no thanks.

    Advice to Management

    Be more supportive of emerging leaders.
