    I worked at Huntsville Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    10 years ago it was a great learning experience. Employees are generally fun to work with.

    Cons

    It is very hard to advance, much less get a pay raise. Pay is deducted depending on their gross income. The latest is to give you extra income and then it is deducted for parking. More taxes for you, less for them.

    Advice to Management

    Share some of your profit with the employees who really do the work, and allow employees to advance from one department to another. Provide health insurance that actually covers something.

    I worked at Huntsville Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive wage and good benefits

    Cons

    Politics and cliques. Who you know not what you know. Some Supersivor's will try to sabotage you if you ever leave and ruin your chances of ever being hired at any of thier other facilities.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to investigate grievances of unfair treatment of employees, age discrimination , etc.....

    I worked at Huntsville Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is local, it is a large corporation with fairly high turnover so there are always opportunities.

    Cons

    Policies are a mess, accessing policies is confusing and time-consuming. If you ask two lower level supervisors for help regarding what should be done you'll get two answers every time.

    Pros

    I really don't have any pros. The people who work there are great but leadership really needs help. Benefits are good!

    Cons

    Always short staffed, the staff is always working too many hrs. New hires quit as soon as they get hired. Management doesn't care about you. You really feel like a number. Wouldn't recommend for anyone.

    I worked at Huntsville Hospital (More than a year)

    Pros

    Air conditioning, great coworkers...thats about it...seriously

    Cons

    Pay, pay, pay! Terrible freaking pay for doing what you have to do on the cardiac floor. Kids flipping burgers where making more than me, and I had to report EKG heart rhythms to Cardiologist! Sometime walking 8-9 miles in the medical district and performing more than 50-60 test each day!

    Advice to Management

    Management was fine, not their fault they could'nt pay us more.
