    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.

    Communication, Communication, Communication

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

    Like all hospitals, poor back up for breaks.

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