Pros

The nursing staff is very nice and helpful to work with.

Cons

Pay is awful needs to be in this decade! The nurse techs and nurse aids are very disrespectful. Management does nothing for this. The insurance is to expensive and we have to wear white uniforms which gets dirty too easily. Oh and no one has gotten a raise in 2 years. Bad ethics.

Advice to Management

Reevaluate the pay scale and make sure to give raises every year! Listen to employees and atleast try to take these things to heart. If you don't have nurses you don't have a business!!!

    I have been working at Southeast Alabama Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My favorite thing about working at SAMC is the sense of teamwork and community

    Cons

    A new benefits package was implemented in January 2017 and I personally haven't been as happy with the health insurance coverage but it's still affordable with a large network of providers. The new dental insurance is disappointing compared to what we used to have; however, the vision insurance is AWESOME.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! The culture of SAMC has definitely changed for the better since Mr. Sutton came on as our CEO.

    I worked at Southeast Alabama Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    SAMC was the employer of choice for years and although pay and benefits are not equal across the board for everyone, it is often better than most in the community. Coworkers are awesome for the most part. They make everyday life better.

    Cons

    Leadership has no conscience. Pay is not equal based on experience, education, etc. Moving up is not determined by loyalty, hard work or success, it is determined by who they want to promote, and who they can control to continue the plan of the current regime. The CEO is no longer Ron Owen, SAMC was in good shape under him. The CEO is Richard Sutton. Google him and you will find out who he is for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Being in the top 10% in the nation as a hospital isn't everything, the way you treat your employees makes a difference in morale and their desire to provide excellent patient care or service to their employer. "Managing up" is a deserved recognition for true leaders... not forced. Board members should be voted in by the community, rather than appointed by their "commissioner buddies," that way the community has a say in what they experience as a patient from the top of the SAMC leadership chain down to the care they receive. Senior leaders need to be held more responsible.
