    I have been working at Hahnemann University Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hospital is easy to travel to and the parking is really inexpensive. The supervisors are great and friendly with a lot of years of experience. There are lab celebrations that bring everyone together. The employees are kind to each other in the lab and are appreciated by the managers.

    Cons

    The nurses don't respect the lab and the lab is busy at times trying to resolve their issues. We are educated and work very hard at our position and would like to be acknowledged. The security isn't as tight as it could be with many people wondering around. Patients are allowed to wonder around with their IV poles off the floors, in the cafeteria , outside and sometimes down to the 7 eleven.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    A paycheck, some of the people, a lot of bitter angry people working here. Nurses protest every month, the lab is in poor condition.

    Constant scheduling issues, extremely low pay, low morale. Shady ethical practices, roaches in the lab, burnout, extremely high turn over rate.

    Restructure all of management asap or sell to a corporation that can actually manage the place.

    I have worked with this company for more than 6 years. There are some good perks employee discount. Insurance prices are reasonable.

    Micro-management. It feels like you are in Kinder Garten. There are so many newly graduates run this facility with no experience. Most people come to collect the pay check. Very few people actually likes to work.

    Advice to Management

    Please look into the amount of people who have left this facility in past few years. More than 25 people from this department has left this facility.
