Pros

Health benefits are very good. Pay is better than other local hospitals. Team environment overall. Flexible schedule. Continued education is encouraged and financial aid is available. Ability to advance within the company.

Cons

Managers had a tendency to favor some employees over others and consequences were not equal at times. Many times not enough staff to cover all sections and employees unable to have significant breaks and/or lunch or dinner breaks.

Advice to Management

Apply rules equally to all employees. Recognize and reward a job well done more often. Praise will keep employees longer.

    "Limited opportunites. To grow need to have BSN or more but reimbursement for education is poor."

    Current Employee - ICU Nurse
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Largest healthcare employer in the area. Staffing not as bad as some other hospitals. Able to change positions within organization but very hard to advance pay

    Cons

    Largest healthcare employer in the area limits your ability to move to a new job. Control salary for nurses. Education is supposed to be a goal for staff, but education reimbursement is much lower than most other employers. Focus is on budget rather than maintaining appropriate staffing. In some instances unsafe staffing levels

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the nurses on issues of patient safety. Cutting clinical staff for budgets outweighs the potential costs in staff injuries, patient injuries, sentinel events. Not enough clinical staff equals frustration, turnover, and patient injury
