Pros

Emory is cutting edge. They bypass all in advanced knowledge of healthcare, research and surgery. Nurses also get shift differentials added to their base pay so their hourly wage doesn't fairly represent what they make.

Cons

Location. I, as do many other employees, live quite a distance from the hospital. That's not Emory's fault, just my biggest headache. Parking is difficult, as we have to park at a distance and catch a shuttle. This adds about 30-40minutes to each day.

    Pros

    Helping advance healthcare; being a part of something that helps the underserved in the community; working with (some) intelligent people

    Cons

    Way too many unqualified people who have advanced into leadership positions strictly on tenure; overall reluctance to utilize new technology (or any technology) by the old-and-in-the-way

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the junior-achiever program. Just because somebody has a degree with a good GPA doesn't translate to being a successful business person. Also get rid of all the "Administrators" who just pass the buck down to clinical managers and analysts.

    Pros

    Emory has a good reputation. The benefits are OK. They are appreciative of the knowledge and skill that their more mature nurses have to offer, and work to retain these experienced nurses. The CNO of Emory Healthcare is great, and quality of care has improved greatly because of the Magnet initiative that she is driving.

    Cons

    Benefits are not nearly as good as they once were. In the past, the fact that Emory paid less per hour was offset by their great benefits package. Not so anymore. When the economy tanked a couple of years ago, Emory was quick to cut employee benefits, using the excuse that they were saving jobs by doing so. As the economy has improved, Emory Healthcare is doing quite well, quietly and successfully merging and acquiring St. Jos., Johns Creek, Clark Holder, and opening numerous satellite clinics. In spite of this, there has been no discussion of restoring what the employees gave up when times were tougher for the company. In fact, employee benefits, healthcare in particular (ironically), continue to be cut, while salaries are becoming more stagnant. Emory gets big tax breaks for their not for profit status, and is expected in return to give back to the community by providing charitable care. They give some, but not nearly what they should. Emory has always and still does cater to their wealthiest clients while greatly limiting access for Medicaid and other indigent patients.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that eventually it is going to become more and more obvious to your employees, and to the community, that Emory has made profitability priority number one.
