    I worked at George Washington University Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    401K, Tuition Reimbursement, teaching opportunities

    Cons

    Hours, acuity and patient load, lack of response and fix systemic issues

    Advice to Management

    Not only listen to employee complaints but make active changes to fix them. Encourage employee growth and satisfaction through fair pay incentives and identification of employee strengths. Keep the hospital clean at all times, and not only during evaluations. Retain more nurses so nurse-patient ratio promotes safe and quality care
