    Pros

    Developing relationships with patients and families while keeping high level nursing skills in use.

    Cons

    Sometimes short staffed due to frequent call ins usually could not be helped but put the rest of the staff in hot water.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises to keep your rising stars!

    NO PATIENT HOSPITALITY WHATSOEVER (some patients whom are dying/hospice)

    Pros

    Nice office, cool people to work with, free coffee, tons of fun paid events. Pay could be considered low to some but for someone with no degree or experience, this place pays pretty well.

    Cons

    The drama. It happens everywhere you go though. Tension between employees and management, a lot of gossip, but it comes with any job.

    Pros

    Opportunity to travel (if your supervisors allow you to take part)

    Cons

    They took away bonuses for "lower level" teammates but not supervisors. The people on the floor are the 1st line, in direct contact with the patients. Floor teammates deserve bonuses more than anyone. They are cutting cost all over at the expenses of "non-exempt" lower level teammates. Sometimes it's more of a "popular kids" table, the way some act, especially hire up.
    Job positions pop up with a selected person already.

    Advice to Management

    You pride yourself on being the employee of choice. Live up to it. Make sure your on the ground teammates are taken care of right. The pulse survey doesn't feel honest considering the fear some have of the supervisors pinpointing the complaints. Enforce team outings, even though it's technically "a thing" supervisors are negating postive teammate experiences to curb the budget to make themselves look better as they climb the ladder.
