    Pros

    Unbelievable pay, more than what true engineers get in the Silicon Valley !

    Cons

    The job classifications have a maximum range, it is huge, but if one has been here a long time, or came in off the street and snow job our clueless HR department, you max eventually and then no longer receive an annual increase (not even for cost of living). But the pay is really high, we have interface analysts and database administrators that make as much as surgeons here !!

    Advice to Management

    Hire Technical Managers and Directors in IT.

    Pros

    Great pay and relaxed work environment. Opportunity to help organization that is very immature in its data warehousing and analytics capability.

    Cons

    Management lacks a technical background and is very new to analytics. Too many layers of management and not enough diversity on analytics team, no project managers, no business analysts, no in depth subject matter experts.

    Advice to Management

    Have better vendor management and contract agreements. Too many different vendors, consultants, and tools.

    Pros

    This review is from a bedside MSICU RN.

    * Great teamwork!
    * Feels like family.
    * Great benefits.
    * Opportunity to learn new skills like CRRT and develop in the relief Charge RN role.
    * Well supplied.
    * Self scheduling.
    * Above average pay.
    * Opportunities to get involved in Unit Council and committees gives staff a voice in management.

    Cons

    * Disorganization of supplies makes work harder.
    * EPIC charting is set up in a way that unnecessarily complicates charting and takes time away from patient care.
    * Advancement in organization does not put enough emphasis on educational preparation.
    * Nursing Leadership needs managers that have degrees with a management focus from the Charge Nurse level and up. It’s hard for people put in those positions to function in managerial roles when their baseline educational preparation is BSN or Masters with a focus on education.
    * An infrequently used skills lab would be helpful for keeping skills up to par.
    * There is opportunity for improvement in the communication between MDs and bedside staff.

    Advice to Management

    * EPIC needs review to make it more charting friendly. The way it is set up makes it very difficult to chart in a timely manner.
    * A clinical pathway for advancement that accounts for educational advancement should be created.
    * The resource nurse role needs to be revised. Resource RNs are frequently absorbed into staffing
    and nurses are not getting the mandatory breaks.
    * Consider rotating nurses through different roles such as: relief charge, resource, bedside and CRRT, to elevate baseline competency of all bedside nurses. Many hospitals engage staff and promote retention by using this effective technique.
    * Overall, I think management is doing a great job! Keep up the good work and continually strive for more!
