    I have been working at Hennepin County Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, solid benefit package. If it weren't for the people I work with, I would have left HCMC years ago.

    Cons

    Disconnect between departments and leadership, lack of accountability from higher levels, blame game mentality versus owning ones mistake/miscommunication. Higher value on recruiting new talent as opposed to retaining current employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be accountable, value the talented employees you have and pay them accordingly, focus on retention, and actually LISTEN to what your employees are saying

    I have been working at Hennepin County Medical Center (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for HCMC for 16 years and overall enjoy my work there. Staff are fun to work with and I enjoy the patient population they serve. I also like the fact that it is a large teaching facility and enjoy working with the residents. I feel for the most part the nurses are valued at the company.

    Cons

    It is a large organization and communication is an issue sometimes. As with most health care facilities balancing financial constraints with desirable staffing levels can be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Communication, Communication, Communication

    Pros

    Excellent care given to patients. Competitive pay. Decent amount of PTO. Great nurse manager.

    Cons

    Like all hospitals, poor back up for breaks.

    Advice to Management

    More float nurses available to break employees. RN's should not be working 12 hour shifts without guaranteed breaks.
