    Pros

    Nursing staff works together. Physicians listen to nursing staff input and take the advice the majority of the time.

    Cons

    Management has favorites among staff nurses. Very under paid compared to other hospitals for the amount of work that is done there. There is a manager that pulls you from the areas of the ER that you don't like to work and puts you where they know you will be miserable.

    Pros

    Majority of the personnel are nice, and willing to train or answer questions.

    Cons

    Area is short staffed so training seems sporadic and you are left on your own early on. Need to be able up pick things up fast to survive. There are a few personnel that seem to have intent to throw people under the bus, and run to the supervisor to deal with problems before first trying to solve the issue with the other party.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with the staff to understand the conflicts that arise, and see some of the ill-will that certain individuals seem to thrive on.
