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

    Pros

    Great staff, good equipment in the newer departments, training offered year round for various topics in healthcare.

    Cons

    Medical Oncology has the oldest equipment and smallest rooms in the entire hospital and double occupancy rooms makes it difficult to move around with equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Update equipment, discontinue double occupancy rooms entirely!

    I have been working at Freeman Health System full-time

    Pros

    Love working with my team for the most part.
    Close to home.
    Flexible time off.
    Optional 4 day work week in IT.
    Direct supervisor is great.

    Cons

    Poor IT managers.
    Poor upper management.
    Poor raises.
    Pay well below market rate.
    Technical decisions made by non technical people.

    A large portion of IT is non-technical and refuses to do even non-technical work claiming it is technical. This is ironic considering they work in information TECHnology.

    New employees are sometimes brought on higher than current employees.

    Benefits are more expensive than many competitors.

    Lack of accountability with incompetent and low performance employees.

    No sick days.

    Modest PTO policy.

    Employer only matches 3% of retirement contributions.

    All this while tax documents reveal several people making over a million dollars a year in addition to high pay for executives.

    Advice to Management

    Pay market rates. Make benefits better. Allow more workplace democracy in IT.

    Pros

    Coworkers are awesome! Everyone really tries to give the best care possible for patients.

    Cons

    Pay, pay, pay. If there was one thing that I wish Freeman would do for their employees it is to increase the pay.

    Pros

    I truly love the staff at my office and would like it if there were some way, that we could always work together.

    Cons

    I'm sure it will take some time to get comfortable in a new buildjng. But seriously,I believe we'll be up to speed in no time

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

    Pros

    I worked with good people who gave me an opportunity to prove myself in a field I had never worked in before. I learned everything quickly and was able to excel in my job. I am thankful for the management that seen my potential and gave me the experience.

    Cons

    I felt like the pay was too low for what was expected in the position. The doctors did not show appreciation for their staff as a whole, and did not appreciate how hard the staff worked to keep their clinics running smoothly.

    Advice to Management

    I think hard working staff needs to be shown the respect they are due. Without a good staff beneath you, you will not succeed. Appreciate a good worker when you have one.

    I have been working at Freeman Health System full-time

    Pros

    Very good work environment! Good moral and encouragement from management within Professional Support. Wonderful Doctors on staff who appreciate their nurses. Benefits are decent while some are pricey.

    Cons

    Pay is very poor for licensed nurses compared to surrounding hospitals, even though they tell you they compare. LPN's are not treated very nicely by staff within Freeman-only from Professional Support. They are not recognized at all during nurses week. But Freeman does not do anything special for nurses during nurses week. This is the first company I have worked for that as a nurse I was not recognized during nurses week with a special gift or Bar-b-q.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay rate for LPN's and recognize ALL nurses during nurses week within the hospital and clinics. We all work hard! Otherwise Freeman is a great place to work!
