    Pros

    Upper management mean well, but are strapped with low operating budget.

    Cons

    Management has very unflexible hours. HR is terrible in regards to negotiating salary and tries to low ball. Health insurance is not cheap, especially for a family. Give meager raises on a yearly basis. No room for advancement.


  5. "I love working for Carilion. I'm a RN there and I always feel supported."

    StarStarStarStarStar

    Pros

    Benefits are reasonable. Staff ratios are better than most places. I am supported by management. My coworkers are amazing. Equipment is for the most part in good condition.

    Cons

    The hours can be long and sometimes there is overtime. The pay is less than other hospitals, but not bad.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your frontline staff.

    I have been working at Carilion Clinic full-time

    Pros

    Good PTO,
    Benefits are pretty good.
    Good people working here

    Cons

    Micromanaged to the point of absurdity. This is making everyone stressed out and morale is low as a result. They keep hiring more and more managers and no people that can do the work. Following the trendy management style is overpowering the expertise needed for IT work. Management seems to be more concerned with numbers/metrics and perception than they are caring for people, including TSG employees. The behavior of management here is something I have witnessed many times and it never ends well.

    Advice to Management

    Someone from upper management needs to take a look at what's going on down here. This department is so top heavy that it is crushing the good people you have working here. Ask yourselves; Is it right to terminate a whole department of long time employees and have them apply for other opportunities, then still have them train the people that will be doing their jobs before they're sent packing?

    Pros

    The PTO program is good

    Cons

    Micro Management style seems to be the desired type. Too Much!

    Advice to Management

    Stop Micromanaging! It doesn't work! Company is top heavy (Too many managers & not enough workers). And the company values are a lie...It's all about the money!
