    I worked at Lakeland Regional Health (FL) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Reasonably competitive salary, benefits, 4-day work week

    Cons

    Politics, backstabbing, cut-throat environment, limited potential for advancement, complete disregard for regulations and patient welfare.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting and enabling the "Cons" listed ... through your own actions, behaviors, reward systems (for poor, destructive behaviors). Hire enough techs to perform the workload "properly" and "safely". Stop fudging numbers on cardiovascular exam data to make your job (and the Cardiologists' jobs) easier - at least 1 woman died because of this while I worked there ! ! ! !

    I worked at Lakeland Regional Health (FL) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Medical staff and medical care is very good.

    Cons

    Hospital management is very young and inexperienced. Too many layers of management. VPs and Directors have little management experience and almost no healthcare experience. Many act like dictators over their departments. There is no longer a free flow of ideas. Many supervisors and managers are afraid to voice their ideas. Instead they wait to see what the newly promoted want done. This has killed personal initiative.

    Advice to Management

    You have run off many experienced managers by promoting over their heads younger staff who supposedly have great ideas. However, the younger staff has little experience, and their ideas are not compatible with compassionate care and in some cases federal healthcare regulations. The new VPs and Directors need to listen to their subordinates and not try to ram ideas through. Also, Gemba walks are for listening and discovery, not for problem solving and showing off a manager's ideas.

    Pros

    You will gain excellent knowledge and experience. Work hard but be rewarded for it. And meet some awesome doctors. The building is kept clean and organized as well.

    Cons

    This is a large hospital for where it is located. And it is extremely busy. Beware there can be days when there are staff shortages and that will pit everyone on turbo.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the thoughts and ideas of lower staff,
