    I worked at DeKalb Medical for more than 3 years

    Pros

    When I worked at DM there were some nice people. Can feel like a family (at times). Liked the small college campus feel. Good location/easy access to 78 and 285.

    Cons

    Bad communication to rank and file employees. A lot of turnover. Good ole' boy system. A lot of incompetent managers/leaders (HR in particular). Raises are inconsistent and typically 1-2%. Some years no raises, but VP's and C-level still goes on out of town "retreats" and gets substantial bonuses. Benefits are not good.

    Advice to Management

    I know this will fall on deaf ears, but since I have to put something...during my time there I saw A LOT of good employees leave and go work at other hospital systems. Maybe you should stop and ask why are we losing good talent?

    I worked at DeKalb Medical

    Pros

    Accessible to metro area a few good doctors some nice people that really care about each other and Dekalb. But are too low on the totem pole to make a significant change.

    Cons

    Not enough thought put into hiring nursing managers. A few are very inexperienced with less than 3 years experience and first nsg job out of school. Nurses work very hard and are overworked and constantly understaffed. Some of the coordinators don't help and will watch a floor nurse drown. New grads put on floor way to early and are prone to mistakes that are overlooked mistakes made at the expense of others lives.... Dekalb needs to higher well experienced managers and leaders to help make it a great place to work.
