    Pros

    Overall it is a good place to work. It is not a high stress environment but it is disorganized. It is easy to transfer to other departments.

    The changes in management and unsure of the future of BH. It is behind the times in comparison to other hospitals in the area.

    I have been working at Broward Health full-time

    Pros

    Starbucks in Lobby - Free parking for employees and visitors (which they are getting ready to eliminate)

    Cons

    Work short staffed - Bad Management - Doctors disrespectful to nurses

    Advice to Management

    Your are the reason for the bad patient reviews - You are not managing your nursing staff. The nurses spend 80% of their shift texting. Also texting personal patient information on their phones to the doctors, i.e. lab values, CT results, asking for orders. The entire hospital has senior personal managing who have NO management skills. Until management is replaced it will remain a mess.

    Cons

    IT Department is Very Corrupt.
    They post positions, but they have already picked up who will fill the position without even giving the chance for other internal candidates to be interviewed.
    If you are not close to the managers and reporting what others say and do, then you are not good employee..
    I wish the hospital was privately owned, None of those IT corrupt managers would have stayed in their positions.
    They contract with outside Vendors for non functioning equipment..easy to figure out why..
    The IT should be outsourced and uproot the corruption

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees the same way

    I worked at Broward Health (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Leadership provides opportunities for growth as well as new opportunities. Friendly towards consultants. Overcoming previous challenges related to physician contracts and related fines is impressive.

    Cons

    The board of commissioners lack of ability to provide clear oversight and they get involved with operations and ongoing bottle neck in the legal department.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing with exception of PMO which needs more management and direction.

    Pros

    Management foresees the change in healthcare coming in the future. New ideas are welcome in meetings and you are pushed to learn new technologies and excel.

    Cons

    As usual when accepting a new position in health care you will have to fill out miles of paper work.

    I have been working at Broward Health full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits: health insurance, dental, vision, disability, life, credit union, and a PENSION.

    Cons

    Pay is significantly lower than average in this market. There is a bit of nepotism. If you think, because you're working in a county tax-funded hospital there would be less bs. It's as bad as private industry, but worse: I didn't expect anything like this.

    Advice to Management

    Be true to your vision and mission statement. Value your employees, ALL your employees.
