    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

    Good pay, great staff, decent benefits

    parking (you have to park a few blocks away and either walk or find room to park in the employee lot and take a shuttle...meaning you need to be at work about 45 minutes before your shift)

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees that go above and beyond...try your best to curb gossip/employees being rude to one another.

    I have been working at Carle Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Unless you love the city of Urbana and Champaign, there is nothing positive about this place
    Work-life balance is okay.

    Cons

    1. The salaries are lower compared to other employers and they claim that education does not play a role in your salary negotiation. you wonder what does!!
    2. The managers are not that competent when it comes to relaying the right message to their team. Lack of understanding and mistrust led to several employees feeling the brunt of work load and leaving the organization altogether.
    3. Cultural diversity needs to be addressed. A lot of people are not happy with the way they are being treated at work, including me.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay, we have bills to take care of. Too many managers and no leaders at all. Get rid of all the managerial posts and find yourself the right people with qualifications to lead a team of professionals.

    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.

    I worked at Carle Hospital as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone I came across have been friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    There is a political battle for power when it comes to management. Because it's such a big organization, there is a long process for initiatives to get moving and requires it to go through a lot of levels of leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Higher leadership should monitor those below them.
