    I have been working at Hamilton Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hamilton Medical Center has great PAL benefits and great pay for individuals just beginning a health field career. The organization is always innovating.

    Cons

    There is a fast turnover rate for employees, especially nurses, and communication breakdown between the different departments. There are too many computer systems that do not easily interface with other programs.

    I have been working at Hamilton Medical Center part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They do pay better than most hospitals in the area, and the benefits (insurance, retirement, etc) are all pretty good. Plenty of education opportunities IF you ask for them.

    Cons

    Even if you like your director/supervisor, please do not be fooled - you are always expendable and they do a poor job of hiding that from you. Directors and supervisors usually do not "have your back" on anything. While they pay well, if you are due any sort of raise or differential, make sure to check your stubs to confirm you received it; I noticed after 3 months that while I was supposed to be paid a higher rate due to experience, they had not been paying me what I should have been. I brought this to their attention and was told that my correct pay rate would be implemented but they could not pay be back pay. Odd, because I'm sure if I had been overpaid and made them aware, I would have had to pay them back. There is also blatant favoritism in the system. Rules that apply to one person may not be applied to another. You may say "it's the same everywhere", but I've worked places that this was not the case, and transparency and knowing that what is expected of you is expected of all is refreshing - do not expect that here.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Caring leaders and staff that don't just look at the bottom-line but truly care about the patients, their families and all staff members.

    Cons

    Any opportunities or suggestions that are brought up to management are addressed in a timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work of making Hamilton an employer of choice and winning awards for patient care and safety!

    I have been working at Hamilton Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Good nurses and excellent training.
    - Push you to be a better nurse.
    - Use wellsoft for charting software

    Cons

    - Management doesn't care as much about you as they do the hospital.
    - If your new its hard for them to not to judge you, instead of encourage you.
    - Positive news travels slowly, bad news travels quickly (Just like most places)

    Advice to Management

    - Please consider encouraging new grads instead of discouraging.
    - When there is a problem get all the details and find out solutions.
    - Put for good faith in your new coming health care workers.

    I worked at Hamilton Medical Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company offers a really good insurance package.

    Cons

    Upper management was bad to cover for non-conformance if they liked the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Gauge employees based on what they have to offer rather than office politics.

    I worked at Hamilton Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay. The differentials are great. Base salary is ok, but to really make good money you have to work the late or weekend shifts.

    Cons

    Everything else. Management gives little care for their employees. They belittle and degrade. There have been several instances I've witnessed employees being called to task for issues they have had in front of the staff. The manager actually degraded her employee in front of others.

    Management does not support their employees. There is an 85% turnover rate here for a reason.

    Advice to Management

    Support your workers. Make them feel valued. If they are not performing to your standards, work with them. Do not degrade them in front of their peers.

    Communicate with employees, give them fair reviews and pay, correct issues needed!
