    I worked at Hendrick Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great HR department, great learning environment. Definitely a place for people wanting to see if they like the medical field and for people who are already professionals to get experience and eventually move on.

    Cons

    Pay is not that great. Some departments will give more responsibility then you're qualified for. Management in certain departments can be hard to deal with, hard for them to see your point of view and can be hypocritical in decision making.

    Advice to Management

    Authoritarian Leadership styles really suck in a medical setting. Please teach some management such as the ER to really care for their employees instead of their numbers. You'll get better numbers ;).

    I have been working at Hendrick Health System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy with most weekends off. Pay is okay for area in which i live. A lot of nice people working there and easy to get along with most people.

    Cons

    Kind of a dead end. They offer opportunities to move up but there really are none. People have worked there 30 years doing the same thing with little to no advancement. The company really does everything to take care of itself first.

    Advice to Management

    Stay in touch with employee needs and opinions. There is a very heavy feeling of it's my way or the highway there. If employees don't go along with everything they say they are not hesitant to give someone the boot.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers. Great work schedule.

    Cons

    Managers don't listen. Hendrick say they care about their employees but they really don't. They'll over work you. Can't really take Personal time off because you have to save them for if you get called off.

    Advice to Management

    CARE!!! Don't just listen but actually hear what we are saying!! And TRY!

    Pros

    Good benifits, nice Salary,Flexible schedule

    Cons

    As a correctional nurse you are left out of the loop with any activities at the hospital. We do not get to enjoy the dress code of the hospital. We are not allowed to bring spreads to work like the hospital employees.

    Pros

    Easy to move up in the company if you are willing to stay there for a while. The HR team works really hard for employee engagement and there are several opportunities year round to get involved. The new additions of the hospital have also been great!

    Cons

    Pay could be more, but it is decent for the area. Friendly environment facilitated through the Gallup survey's that employees are required to take. Parking can be some what annoying.

    Advice to Management

    I was fortunate to see my manager constantly and that aiding in me exceeding. I always felt that I was apart of the team.
