    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at East Jefferson General Hospital full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Onboarding was fairly straightforward though I found the paperwork process archaic.

    Cons

    By far the most behind-the-time workplace culture I've encountered. Open racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. Wildly inappropriate comments about coworkers and patients (not referring to "dark humor"). Serious lack of professionalism among a lot of the travel nurses - though some do work hard. Even some of the staff nurses seem to be focused on anything but patient care sometimes. Some techs and other support staff are absolutely useless - not all, but some - and on my unit I see no corrective action from leadership, which makes life harder for the staff who do put in the effort. Some days have moments of joy, learning, and satisfaction - but more often than not I feel very frustrated and worn-out working at EJGH.
