    Pros

    I work around great people, my HR team is the best.

    Cons

    The only downside is that we've been without an HR Director for so long our HR reputation has taken a fall, but now we have a great director that is pulling things together.

    I worked at Desert Springs Hospital (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good.

    Cons

    The working environment here is like high school with ashtrays. Unless you kiss everyone's butts, or are one of the "cool kids", you'll barely get a hello from anyone. There are painfully obvious cliques, and everyone looks down their noses at you. This is NOT a fun place to be!
    The "training" is extremely poorly organized, averages about 9 shifts over 3 weeks, and you're expected to know it all by then, or you're going to be looked upon as an idiot, and spoken to as such.

    Advice to Management

    When you get someone who has more emergency experience than most of your staff, but who has only worked in the field, don't be so condescending if they don't pick things up as fast as you expect them to. Making someone feel belittled and embarrassed isn't the way to entice anyone to be part of your team. Have some patience and understanding that they come from an entirely different scenario, and that just because their knowledge may be different, although parallel to what you're asking for, it doesn't give you the right to treat them like crap, or not care about/consider what they're saying. Being nasty because someone isn't picking up your way of doing things in 3 weeks is unacceptable. How long do you think it would take you to learn how to be on an ambulance, not know what you're going to find, and be without all of your support staff and computers? I'm betting longer than the time you give others. Bottom line is that just because someone hasn't spent their career in a hospital with computers, safe environments, and plenty of help, doesn't mean that they can adapt overnight from what they're used to. Be fair and kind to the people that you hire, and you just *might* have a better retention rate! Behaving like stuck up elitists isn't the way to encourage people to stay, even if the money is good. Allowing nurses to act like children who run to management for the tiniest, unrealistic, (often false) and/or imagined patient care "issues" (because they don't like someone) instead of actually talking to the person in question, is just ridiculous.
    We're all adults, and the staff there needs to start behaving like it. There is NO excuse for anything else to be an acceptable standard. I was repeatedly told that my patient care was exemplary, yet it made no difference in how I was treated.
    With the exception of roughly two nurses who appreciated me for my contributions (who happened to be male and always ignored all of the petty bs.), my experience there was completely miserable, and I'd never recommend it as a place to work.
