    I worked at Lifespan full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The focus of excellence in patient care is the pride of both clinical and non-clinical employees. If you are not directly providing care for a patient, then you must provide support for those who are providing direct care.

    Cons

    The changes of upgrades in the business of health care can displace many dedicated employees -- never personal, but a business decision.

    Advice to Management

    Earnestly work with employees who are vulnerable to help them not become victims of a strategic change in operations. The impending impact on employees is apparent from the beginning. Use that knowledge to communicate the anticipated impact to their (staff) respective functions.

    I worked at Lifespan part-time

    Pros

    Meeting the patients was the best part of the job! Made lasting friendships with my peers, nurses & doctors. Working here is a great benefit, you learn which doctors are the best of the best for various diseases & who you’d want treating you & immediate family members... Patient care is impeccable!

    Cons

    More politics than healthcare!! Very low stock on basic patient needs like blankets, pillows, swabs, etc.. However there’s lots of money available for elaborate buffets daily so the elites can entertain investors & potential “important” new hires! The raises vary, either you dont & if you you’re lucky, Bank on 1 - 2% for non union employees! Hospital complains it’s broke however when it’s beneficial, money magically appears for the buffets & travel!! The presidents/elites are making over a million yearly & the true workers who break their backs have to pick up extra shifts just to make ends meat! Very hard to move up the food chain, opportunity lacks!

    Advice to Management

    The managers have their favorites & love their kissers! Some employees know the job better than management but don’t try & correct them because “they know it all!” And will remind you who holds the title!

    I worked at Lifespan full-time

    Pros

    Fantastic learning opportunities, exposed me to different departments of interest where I could explore possible future career paths, many free trainings offered after work hours= for example I received my medical terminology certificate.

    Cons

    It was a privilege to work in that hospital but the culture was a little "snooty" for that reason.

    Advice to Management

    promote and award good customer service

    I have been working at Lifespan full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, freedom to get my job done the best way that I can. FANTASTIC department manager is willing to listen and discuss ways to improve our processes.

    Cons

    Rising costs of health benefits, IT infrastructure, and the managers that support it, are extremely lacking. Very frustrating. There was/has been a mass exodus of high-level IT managers and now, I understand why.

    Advice to Management

    Already shared my advice to them numerous times - doesn't do anything.

    Advice to Management

    Manage scheduling better
