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

    Pros

    It was a good opportunity to gain skills, great patient interaction, and some floors/ departments had great teamwork. Lots of exposure to new situations.

    Cons

    Low pay when compared to similar jobs. Some managers refused to weed out those with a poor work ethic, choosing to keep a 'warm body' instead.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the lazy. That's it. Most people would rather work short handed rather than deal with the drama caused by unmotivated coworkers.

    Pros

    Facility is growing and has a new hospice unit in the works for 2016. Patient ratios were reasonable and nurse managers were helpful. Has tuition reimbursement available. Workout facility is very nice.

    Cons

    Company insurance is a joke and constantly changing. Just dropped BBBS patients so should be interesting.

    Advice to Management

    Have more incentive to move to Abilene if not from this area.
