    I have been working at Huntsville Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are looking to pick up extra hours, It is extremely easy to do so. Paid overtime is a plus, so is tuition assistance (must be working for a year).

    Cons

    Lack of respect, TONS of lazy nurses, money (raises are not given out like they should), patient population

    Advice to Management

    When an employee comes to you with a problem or concern, at least acknowledge It.

    I have been working at Huntsville Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Incentive overtime bonus fairly often. Good community reputation. Well equipped facility. Short commute time (less than 20 minutes from just about anywhere in town). Great benefits within the extensive healthcare system.

    Cons

    Poor employee parking with distant change supposedly coming (little evidence), which keeps my car perpetually dirty from the gravel parking lot. Poor charting system and electronic communication (supposed to implement a new corporate wide system in late 2018).

    Advice to Management

    Fix the employee parking sooner rather than later.

    Keep tabs on how many patients from the ED are held unnecessarily until the end of the shift to avoid getting new patients...this common practice makes for a frustrating evening on the floor as patients routinely come up within minutes to seconds before shift change.

    Centralized room and can always find a shift to work.

    Listen
