    Pros

    All employees appear to be working for the patients, generally welcoming environment, social workers are awesome, nursing (including care assistants) are for the most part great to work with, docs are open to teaching. Families trust us. Emergency room and urgent cares are the best place to work despite weekend, holidays, weird hours requirements. They have open minds and see the big picture. They respect other subspecialties and work great as a team.....

    Cons

    Clinics and subspecialties criticize and demean other specialties. Clinic nurses are expected to work overtime every day, skip lunches, never call in and never be late. Pay in the clinics, even for nurses with 7-10 years experiences is disrespectful and clinic wide we are told to "do more with less". Magnet status is a joke. Ut is not to enhance the environment for nurses. It seems to just be all about appearences. Leadership are business minded and treat the people who make the hospital run (nurses) like peasants. I am a balanced, caring, intelligent person who doesn't usually unnecessarily complain, but MERCY, hear these complaints!!

    Advice to Management

    Consider paying nurses more, cutting unnecessary spending. Cut child life where nurses can do the job, doctors don't need ipads.... Come work in our shoes. Require a background in nursing or medicine...be more proactive about requiring pts / families to pay unpaid bills.
