    Pros

    Best ICU in the city with highest acuity patients and best intensivist

    Cons

    LGMC does not pay critical care nurses the highest

    Advice to Management

    Critical care nurses both ER and ICU RNs should always make the most money in the hospital. They are more certified , more skilled, and work in high stress/dangerous environments - so pay them for it!

    I have been working at Lafayette General Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Leadership listens to employees. There are always opportunities with communication but the intent to always improve and learn is evident through quarterly forums and annual employee engagement surveys. the mission to serve is the key driver in all practices each and every day.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a challenge but that is individually owned.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to move out low performers because those are the ones who will continue to prohibit our highest potential.

    I worked at Lafayette General Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are not positives for this money motivated company. The commercials on TV are false advertsing.

    Cons

    Management is horrific!!!! They place people who have no experience in management managing a floor. She was literally the worst manager I have ever had. She fired about 15 people in 1.5 years which is crazy you have to think hmm maybe it is her managing. I went above her and reported all of this behavior on Friday and I was miraculously fired on Monday hmm. I wonder why I got fired. I went to HR and asked to see why because I worked that 2.5 years and they wouldn't give me a reason. And I also told them I had made a complaint to my managers boss and I got fired right after and HR told me we will always side with management on everything. That's the real Lafayette General not the fake one that is portrayed on TV. They have become a monopoly so it's hard to avoid working for them but if at all possible avoid them.

    Advice to Management

    Get an entire new set of managers or at least train them. The problem with the manager I had was that she wasn't trained and she would pit us against each other and we caught her in so many lies. She lied about everything and she not manager anymore either. I wonder why. Lafayette General did not stand up for me at all even though I was wrongfully terminated but it was a blessing in disguise because I do not want to work for a business that places no value in their employees. That's how a majority of people who work there feel but when they speak up they get terminated for something so trivial. I have seen this done to many people including myself.
