    I worked at Griffin Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paid vacation is the only pro.

    Cons

    You're frowned upon for using your sick time when actually sick, The management spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on this "Planetree Philosophy" when it's fully optional for the higher-ups (apparently), many get away with too much. It's not a friendly place to work at by any means. Underpaid and understaffed - just waiting to be sold (in my honest opinion). Little to no raises. No future in this company. Would not recommend. The wages and annual raises are laughable. Also, worst H.R. department I've ever come across, where you get literally zero support.

    Advice to Management

    Start over. Unless you're seriously trying to sell this hospital. I would not recommend anybody for Any positions in this hospital. God's honest truth.

    I worked at Griffin Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There really aren't any pros except that the cafeteria food is super cheap so you'll save money there, which you'll probably need since the salary here for hospital inpatient pharmacists is in my opinion way too low.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? Even health insurance offered by the retail chains is better than what's offered here. 401k match is terrible. Pay is unacceptably below nationwide average for the same position at other hospitals. Techs don't give respect and the culture between your techs and other pharmacists at the inpatient pharmacy is absolutely terrible. I feel like everyone just likes to snitch back to the boss. I don't even like the boss herself since she can be utterly rude, and an unpleasant/undesirable presence to be around. If you value your time, I do not recommend working here not even to get hospital experience. you will regret it.

    Advice to Management

    Human resources should keep directors in check to properly treat their employees. Offer competitive health insurance, and competitive 401k matching. Reimburse employees for travel expense and licensure/continuing education costs, and inclement weather lodging costs.
