I worked at Greenville Health System full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Working within the hospital system allows you to become familiar with the physicians in the area and in the network, so that you know who you would want to participate in your healthcare if needed.

Cons

Poor utilization of the physician office nurses, with no advancement available. This is especially true for the LPN's which are only used in these offices. If you work outside of the hospital in one of the physician offices, there is no "true" time off for what they consider paid holidays. If the office is closed and you do not have enough hours in your own PTO bank to cover the day off, you do not get paid, so in order to get paid for a so-called holiday, you have to use your own PTO......that is not providing paid holidays. Only hospital staff, really get paid hoilday time off, as they may work the holiday, get paid time and a half for working, and then get another day off with pay without using their own PTO at all.

Advice to Management

Need to have opportunities for LPN's to move from clinical care to other areas of nursing, as the RN"s do without telling them that if they are requesting this, they may have loss their compassionate if they request to do so. Also, all clinical staff should be rewarded the same amount of PTO accrual. Currently, LPN's are looked down on within this organization, and do not rget the same respect as the RN's . That is why, they are only allowed to work in the physician offices, and do not accrue time as quickly as other clinical staff, they are listed under the non- professional catargory. ****************when you have a good nurse, value her/him without regard to LPN or RN.............alot of LPN's have more knowledge, and/or experience then the RN's .

    Pros

    Co workers are helpful. Typically people in the system will assist if help is needed, but only at a peer or subrdinate level. This could be a positive experience for employees with much needed changes.

    Cons

    I had hoped that Studer would be beneficial to the management staff but I have seen no positive results overall. The management staff is difficult and in many cases, unqualified.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to what employees are saying in the town hall meetings and start taking action when a manager receives poor results. Stop supporting bullying behavior from upper management to subordinates which results in quality personnel leaving from the system.
