    Pros

    Some good middle level management (ICU/CVICU), competitive base pay rate, good benefits

    Cons

    No flexible scheduling (all 12 hour EOW), weekend and shift differentials are not competitive with other hospitals, on call is mandatory and the pay for call is pitiful

    Advice to Management

    Offer weekend Baylor positions, increase weekend and third shift differentials, don't let your doctors run the hospital - they don't watch out for your nurses like you need to in order to retain experienced RNs.

    I worked at East Alabama Medical Center (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There were not many good things about working at EAMC. The only thing I can think of is that it was a job.

    Cons

    EAMC was one of the worst places I’ve ever worked. If you are not one of the “It” people, there is no hope for promotion nor career advancement. They like to hire people with BS, or MS degrees at very low level employments. Once they hire you, you will be treated as if you are nothing. They also like to hire temporary; however, it will be very difficult to get a permanent position. The supervisors do not support their employees. They will throw you “under the bus”, if they think it will affect them in any way. The supervisor I had was so horrible that she went out of her way to find reasons to write people up. If you have any choices between EAMC and other employment, DO NOT CHOOSE EAMC!!!!!!!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    You advertise that you care about patients; and from what I’ve seen, you treat them well. However, you treat your employees awful. Unless you change your treatment of your employees, EAMC will continue to be a dreadful and rotten place to work!

    Pros

    Medical insurance is the best offered. People are lovely. There are lots of great managers and the training received is brilliant.

    Cons

    Limited holiday time makes it impossible to travel abroad. Pay grading is complicated. Very strict for lateness and calling in. Stricter on lower pay grades.

    Increase holiday time.

    I have been working at East Alabama Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent senior leadership, especially the CEO. People adore him and he shows everyday how much he cares for his employees. He visits every department in the hospital at least one every 2 weeks and know employees by name. His philosophy is to manage by people, not policy, and that trickles down to all levels of management. Our entire organization contributes to our strategic goals, and we are rewarded for our successes. Grateful to be working at EAMC and would recommend it to anyone.

    Cons

    We have a spoiled employee population and some take advantage of our culture's willingness to be compassionate and accomodate specific situations .
