    I worked at GBMC HealthCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    What makes GBMC so great is that it is one of the few remaining not-for- profit community hospitals that exist within modern society that genuinely evokes a sense of compassion and comradery amongst it's staff; and the community. Being that it is not your large scale industrial big name hospital, GBMC is the kind of place where you slowly develop those special and close personal relationships with everyone from the cafeteria worker to your fellow RN colleagues to your supervisor. It is one of the least punitive health care environments I have had the pleasure to work in, where instead of persistently scrutinizing and discouraging employees, they focus on ways in which an individual may improve and implement plans to improve accordingly.

    Cons

    This is not exactly the ideal hospital to work at if you are looking for experience in more action packed high acuity areas such as shock trauma or advanced cardio-invasive intervention as this hospitals acuity level does not accommodate those cases at this time. The hospital is also not as technologically advanced as others in the surrounding metro area.

    Advice to Management

    Send out courtesy reminders for those who may need renewal of certifications or licenses before expiring.

    I worked at GBMC HealthCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Seeing the same patients all the time and the connection with them. As well as working alongside the nurses was a great experience

    Cons

    The unit was understaffed and made for a very stressful work environment. Even though Friday's are short days, Monday through Thursday turned into 10 hour days because there was too much work for one person to complete in an 8.5 hour day.

    Advice to Management

    Better use of employees and staffing

    I worked at GBMC HealthCare (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus and free parking is the best part, yuk, yuk, yuk......

    Cons

    total favoritism throughout organization, unfair career and evaluations if you aren't in the "click."

    Advice to Management

    When 23 people leave a department in less than 4 years, pay attention, address the problem, leadership is weak and does not care.
