    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn new things, and move to new positions. One of the larger, financially stable companies in the area, which makes it a secure place to work.

    Cons

    Annoying nurses union, which seems to be fleecing its members. Senior management unable to accomplish "big vision" goals in a timely manner.

    Pros

    Vacation/holiday/sick pay, plenty of opportunity once you're in the door, decent hours, allowed to suggest and implement process improvements. There are many good managers and you're lucky if you work for one.

    Cons

    Many of Senior management is not in touch with employees. No pay raises due to decreasing reimbursement from payors. Vacation accrual was decreased for managers last year Continually being asked to do more with less......

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach and be a role model - "Caring Behaviors" and "Patient First" are preached but not practiced. Listen to what your employees are really saying. Reward the high performers or they will be the first to leave when the economy turns around.
