I have been working at Carilion Clinic full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

This place is on the border of being a great job. Like all places, management could use some management. Hard to get fired (this could be a bad thing). There are moments of down time and you can run errands while on the clock. They help pay for school. You can educate yourself in all levels of EMS and they will provide the means.

Cons

The companies benefits are crap. No matching 401k. Pension is minuscule and takes 5 years to become vested. Health insurance has gone way up and in monopolistic requiring you to only use their providers (should be illegal). No real kudos for when you go above and beyond. Don't hurt yourself or get sick, they will probably just fire you. And don't mention the word union.

Advice to Management

Fire some people. And reward those who deserve it.

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Many will give helpful hints regarding streamlining this demanding job. Will be able to meet many wonderful patients and families. Independent nursing with appreciative patients.

    Cons

    Management is sneaky. Eight hours turn into 10 to 12 per day and is only partly reimbursed - due to pressure by management to "hold costs down" and unspoken implication that the employee must be faulty.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic about time needed to provide great nursing care. Please don't just talk a good line, but live up to it.
