    I worked at Carle Foundation Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Opportunities for growth as a RN

    Cons

    You don't get raises based on performance or merit. The only way to get a raise is to "level up." In order to level up you have to put together a portfolio and go in front of a panel. If you are selected to level you have to join committees and your required continuing education goes from 20 to 40 credits per year. This is all for a 5% increase. It will cost the RN more to obtain the 40 credits than they will receive...

    Advice to Management

    Pay nurses a fair wage! Allow people to go out of network when it takes months to get in to see a Carle MD.

    I have been working at Carle Foundation Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Cafeteria is open 24/7. Nursing staff works 12 hour shifts which gives more days away from the facility which is needed to recharge.

    Cons

    I am actively seeking other employment. Carle has a God complex culture which takes patients out of their own decision making. Carle would rather force somebody to do things their way by any means necessary, including chemical and physical restraint rather then allow them direction of their medical decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Wise up you are not above the law and do not get to make decisions against what a patient wants. People matter more than the bottom line.

    I worked at Carle Foundation Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Magnet Hospital, take new grads

    Cons

    Poor staffing, high turnover of nurses, management who doesn't unite the staff

    Advice to Management

    Staffing the hospital better would slow down turnover. You're burning out your best nurses.

    Pros

    Some really great people. Lots to learn.

    Cons

    Any opportunity to make you feel degraded. Snakes. Snakes. Snakes. Period.

    Advice to Management

    Treat equally. No favoritism. No cliques. None of that. It's completely out of control and you enable it's every process of action to say the least.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Carle Foundation Hospital full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are good, medical, dental, vision, retirement and more.

    Cons

    Challenges include advancement for only chosen ones, disrespect for older generation, lack of consistency in communication.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the nurses that your organization hired and trained. Keep a consistent chain of command, ie, nurses report to nurses, techs report to techs and X-ray personnel and so on. A respiratory therapist has no business judging a nurses competency.

    I worked at Carle Foundation Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Highly educated staff, very friendly staff, and the hospital does everything it can to ensure the best trained staff possible.

    Cons

    Hard to really think of any cons, lots of employees, so parking can be tough, but there is a shuttle for day shift employees to take to the hospital and there is a parking garage for night shift, not so bad.

    Current Employee - NICU RN in Urbana, IL

    I have been working at Carle Foundation Hospital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Level III NICU provides top notch care and is at forefront of technological advances.

    Cons

    I have been working at Carle Foundation Hospital

    Pros

    Great teamwork among staff and friendly environment. Decent pay and time off. Level 1 Trauma Center known for great care of patients. Classes offered on campus for continuing education throughout the year.

    Cons

    Health benefits are not great and could be more affordable. Some departments require a lot of overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Work on nurse retention more by rewarding nurses for experience and years of service. Find ways to have more flexibility with scheduling shifts and on call requirements.
