    I worked at Columbia Memorial Hospital part-time

    Pros

    Staff was friendly and helpful to each other, had a family feel most of the time (depending on the department) in having each other's backs. The hospitalists they had while I was there were good to work with and willing to listen.

    Cons

    Huge rift between administration and staff - lots of disagreements and miscommunication. Issues could be handled differently so as not to create more bad feelings, but instead it seems both management and staff deliberately do things to further the gap between them. Negotiation years are a nightmare. No willingness to compromise or see the other side - it's like the US government!

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to handle issues - staffing, scheduling, pay, contract, etc - in a way that is less aggravating to staff. Don't be condescending, but also don't hide things. More transparency. Staff is already suspicious of anything management does.
