      Pros

      The pay is steady, and the hours can be consistent and with that combination that could turn out to be a good situation depending on who you are.

      Cons

      management is terrible, they do not and will not work with you. The best option would be to join the union if you choose to stay, that will truly help with most of your problems.

      Pros

      You’ll see things you learned about in nursing school, but you instructors said you may go your whole career and never see. The sickest of the sick come here so if you want high acuity and all the resources that western medicine can offer, then this is the place for you. Great education program for new graduate nurses, really supports you within that first year! Health benefits are incredible!

      Cons

      The volumes are SO high and staffing is always short; everyone feeling spread so thin to provide good care to these very sick patients. Terrible culture within the hospital: very difficult to get the floors to take report, they pick and choose patients and nursing supervisors side with them leaving the ED to continue to board the patient for no real reason and takes a space away from emergently ill patients. This results in terrible patient flow and low patient satisfaction. Very easy place to get burnt out in Poor work ethic and lacking team work are praised/promoted while hard workers who work with the team to get things done quickly and correctly go without recognition Lack of space and resources The workflow for all the different resources and communication etc (the system) is fraught with issues causing lots of delays in patient care
