    I have been working at Kettering Health Network full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    caring supervisors and managers for the most part.
    great facility to work in.
    good patient population usually.
    safe area to work in.
    flexible hours and i can usually rearrange my schedule as needed if i know in advance.
    best part of working for a bigger corporation rather than a small private practice is that I dont have to handle any of the insurance or billing, we have clerical staff that deals with that headache.

    Cons

    - pay is inflexible, set structure for amount you can start at depending on your degree. however you can increase it some with Clinical activities and such.
    - as an outpatient therapist i have to rotate to cover weekend hospital shifts every month of so. (some people dont mind this)

    I have been working at Kettering Health Network full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Love the people I work with-nurses, physicians, and other staff. The doctors here do good work, despite some negative reputations within the community. Good team work on the unit. Easy to pick up extra shifts. Pay better then some higher ranked hospitals within the area.

    Cons

    Management constantly changing. Poor leadership within the hospital itself. Limited growth opportunity to move up. It is all about who you know. Not paid based on experience or education. Often short-staffed, be able to manage without PCAs and have heavy patient loads

    Advice to Management

    People should be in management because they have the experience and leadership for that position, not just because they know somebody. Pay people for having advanced education! Hire staff, being short-staffed increases workload and lowers morale.

    Pros

    The support from senior leadership is excellent. The team at KPN (Kettering Physician Network) is committed to placing APPs in areas of practice that they thrive in with support and resources. KPN is very open to feedback/recommendations for improvement, and act on recommendations.

    Cons

    Physicians seem less accustomed to working with APPs within the network. They have all been very open to building a working relationship, but are unfamiliar with our scope of practice, etc. Joining the network without experience as a nurse practitioner, I found the salary to be a bit less than other offers in the area.
