    I have been working at Largo Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked at Largo Medical Center while getting my nursing degree as a tech. My unit worked around my school schedule as they paid for my education. I was able to transition into a full-time nurse with the StarRN program, which trained me to be comfortable and capable as a new nurse. I have worked two years as a nurse now and the hospital has paid for my BSN degree and continue to financially help as I get my Masters. The facility continues to work around my schedule. Largo is a great work environment with friendly staff and support from management. Largo is a teaching hospital, so I continue to learn and grow each day I work. Largo Medical Center is the hospital of the future and I am honored to be a part of this experience.

    Cons

    Nothing negative I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing.

    I worked at Largo Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Multiple subspecialities allowing for monthly rotations for students and resident. This allowed for increased learning due to fellows being able to give another layer of lectures.

    Cons

    Not very academic centered; lack of morning report or time spent on evidence based practices/literature. Could use more teaching attending physician lectures.

    I worked at Largo Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are the best thing about the company.

    Cons

    •Snobby management
    •Supplies to actually do your job are minimum and you have to walk around the whole hospital to find them
    •Workload is almost unattainable, unless patient load is below average
    •Patient load is double, sometimes triple what it should be
    •Work/life balance is off kilter because your days off are recovering

    Floor manager was great and very professional,called to check progress often.

    I have been working at Largo Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy. Will train if needed. Really hard to get in trouble. Extremely easy-going nursing and other clinical staff. Good pay rate.

    Cons

    Terrible doctors, unsafe for patients, horrendous management that only cares about their bottom line and not at all about patient care. I would NEVER bring my family here for care.

    Advice to Management

    We, on the front lines, are burning out faster than orientation lasts. Please treat your employees better by providing us with the tools and staffing we need to succeed and that our patients need to survive. You will not retain quality employees until you start treating them with the respect they deserve.

    I worked at Largo Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked with some good nurses and doctors we had a great team going

    Cons

    Management had always been the problem and I see they have only gotten worse over time they lots of good nurses because of the way they treat and stress employees out all the time

    Advice to Management

    Nothing will change at LMC until they get rid of all the management people and hire some good ones in their place

    I worked at Largo Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employees, they are the ones who are essentially keeping that place afloat.

    Cons

    Leadership is there and there for one reason only, for profit. To ensure they work their employees into the ground and provide any care or show any consideration other than compassion. Largo Medical Center is a revolving door not only of patients but of employees who are overworked, underpaid, disrespected and abused. Someone posted above that working there gave them PTSD, I wouldn't put it any other way, it is a traumatizing experience at the least to work there. And, don't bother addressing your complaints with higher administration or their corporate office, they work diligently and together to cover up their incompetencies. Horrible work environment, if you value and have respect for yourself, do NOT work there.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage. Effectively.
