"Top heavy in directors and lack of managers causes confusion amoung workers"

Pros

Improvements do occur when senior management is aware of benefits. Company has long history will be around in 100 years.

Cons

Not enough recognition, pay increases, training or upward mobility.

Advice to Management

Re-analyze current mangement structure and get the reall management back down to line level and not director level. The less there are directors the better, more managers that roll up to less directors. Directors are not managers at HCMC they are misplaced.

    Pros

    Still has good benefit package.
    Can feel you are doing Important work in community.
    Nationally recognized hospital, can be proud of workplace.

    Cons

    Extreme budget shortfall--constant reductions of staff and increase of work pressure and responsibilities for remaining staff.
    Unstable management--frequent changes of management people and of goal focus as hospital separates from County management.
    Poor moral in almost all departments.

    Advice to Management

    Most employees take pride in their jobs and are aware of extreme budget pressures. But they can not be stretched beyond a certain point--many departments are already running only by allowing massive overtime and running employees at burn-out level.
