    Great Place to Work

    CEO Approval

    Pros

    Job Security! In a organization like this, the work is never ending and good people are always needed to help out. Upper management will always take care of you if you do your job and show up to work.

    Cons

    A job is what you make of it.

    Bad Work-Life Balance

    Oct 12, 2022 - Administrative Assistant in Augusta, GA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Meet new coworkers, if you have a passion for helping others this is a great place to start with the individuals who come in the hospital

    Cons

    The workload is huge, currently short staffed so assistants have to take on others' job responsibilities. Drama between management and coworkers. The work life balance is terrible. Sometimes you'll end up working by yourself and get no breaks, or you'll have to stay over for another shift because the one person working after you called out. If you do apply here I recommend only applying for day shift, that way if you have to stay over you can still leave by midnight. Hospital is filthy and outdated, however the employees who do come to work with a good attitude are the best coworkers.

    Pros

    You get a chance to work with some amazing people who are willing to help. You will learn alot.

    Cons

    Merit increases are not nearly enough and most departments usually start you off at the minimum of a pay grade. Any promotion after that is only a 5% increase if you are already within the pay range.

    Pros

    Perfect job for retired people that want to get back to work or looking for just a salary to pay some bills. No annual job performance or evaluation, but be ready so you won't get a raise within 5 years. PTO, health insurance and 401K.

    Cons

    Zero career advance Disrespectful salary compensations comparing with the market Unprofessional coworkers Micro management, they don't know better
