I have been working at Florida Hospital full-time

Pros

I've been around healthcare IT for a long time and most hospitals are very backward technologically. HITECH is changing that, but FH recognized that earlier and invested in HIT heavily. They do pay well and seldom fire anyone. Layoffs are unheard of. Recently got "Best Hospital in Florida" from US News, "Most Wired", and rated as an excellent place to work by Gallup.

Cons

It is Seventh Day Adventist and that permeates the culture. If you are anti-religious you won't like the constant messages of "Healing ministry of Christ". That being said, I work with atheists, Jews, and Muslims who have been there many years. They talk religion a lot but nothing is forced on you.

There's a dress code - khakis and polo shirts, no jeans or uncollared shirts.

Though the tech is very good for a hospital, if you come from another industry you may find it a little backward.

Advice to Management

Microsoft is circling the drain. Open source and BYOD are the future. The sooner you realize that the less you'll have to re-architect.

    I have been working at Florida Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Parking is not a problem on night shift. Good night shift differential.

    Cons

    I work in the Children's Hospital, and there is not much input from staff before decisions are made. MD/RN relationship is not that great, a lot of them are rude, and don't take the time to explain what and why they do things so that everyone continues to learn. Not a teaching hospital. Food is terrible and overpriced.
