    I have been working at Excela Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good health benefits and PTO time.

    Cons

    Administration does nothing to value their employees. Employees from all departments are leaving in droves. Nurses hate it here. They are always understaffed and hire new nurses just a few dollars less than what senior nurses make. Admin too focused on marketing instead of staffing. All the administrators are rejects from other health systems. Leadership is absolutely terrible. They focus on too many LEAN projects and have meetings for meetings and committees for other committees. You only get promoted if you know someone.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. Treat them well and they will work harder for you. Offer competitive salaries. Work with people's schedule.

    I have been working at Excela Health full-time

    Pros

    Close to home. Pay is competitive.

    Cons

    Requiring new hires to obtain BSN and education reimbursement is inadequate.

    Respect experience.


  3. "Good overall experience"

    Pros

    You learn a lot and get raises every year as long as you do your job. Training is offered also

    Cons

    The pay is low to start and the schedules are hard to manage your life around but that's with any hospital setting.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to try to keep the hospital small and not to grow too large and over extend and to make sure you always reward good employees

    I worked at Excela Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Above minimum wage pay. Variable hours.

    Cons

    Pay at lowest scale in the region for ancillary staff. Frequent false promises and low staffing ratios. Unsafely understaffed for volume.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make promises you are unwilling to keep. Treat the staff that you have better and stop the culture of senior nurses eating their young.

    I worked at Excela Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most people are good to work with. If you are full time benifits are good. Nothing great for part time employees. Great manager. She was very easy to talk to and tried her best to make working conditions good.

    Cons

    The point system. If you get sick, you get 3 points. You must use PTO if you have it but you still get punished with points. If you have an emergency with your children and if they need hospitalized, you get points. This systems causes parents to send their children to school sick so they don't get punished. After you accumulate so many points you get terminated. Part time employees get even less.
