    Pros

    Great hospital to learn the basics; if they really want an experienced RN they will match salary requirements; please go to glassdoor.com and/or salary.com so you don't short yourself out of pay; it is a great hospital to either start at to learn the basics or a perfect hospital to retire at (most employees are new grads or nurses ready to retire) as they have had experience elsewhere

    Cons

    Look forward to no evaluations, no retirement contributions, or yearly raises. Out of 3 people I asked 2 of them had no raise in 4 years and 1 with no raise in 8 years; their ICU not always open; ICU training is not available for those who want to learn ICU; 1 supervisor bullies all the employees; another supervisor lives inside her bubble as that is the only place this supervisor has worked in in years; they physically offered me $4 less than what originally offered; this place is so "inside the box" thinking that they don't even have a heparin flow sheet (that is common sense to have one); they do not have any boundary setting with patients so look forward to it being "ok" by management that patients mentally & emotionally abuse their staff; no opportunity for advancement in the hospital; one travel nurse even commented about how the patients get away with murder here; if you're looking to further your career seek elsewhere; they hire travel ICU nurses like mad and then give their own staff low census

    Advice to Management

    Please start "managing" the patients; follow through and reinforcement of boundary setting with patients is a positive, so please start setting proper boundaries with them

    Pros

    It is a great place to get experience to further more your knowledge of the health care field, you get to learn something new everyday. I love that we work 12hr shifts work three days and every third weekend, being able to create your own schedule to fit your life style.

    Cons

    Team work can improve to a higher level , it is very demanding , some things are always getting over looked and never go nowhere. the constant favoritism is pretty annoying

    Advice to Management

    listen and intervene as needed make improvments for everyones ability to work comfortable not just a few adjustments to make a few comfortable

    Pros

    you get plenty of over time if you want it. max patient load is 6, but most of the time you will have only 4

    Cons

    poor management. upper management can care less about you and don't even know who you are most of the time, mid management pretends to care, they listen but don't hear you.

    Advice to Management

    screen your applicants more carefully, don't just hire a warm body. when your employee comes to you with a concern pay attention
