    I have been working at Methodist Healthcare System full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Appears to be a good place to work with a fun culture and good CEO, COO...

    Cons

    -Awful health benefits (you pay for everything until you meet your $1000 deductible) - of all the hospitals I have worked for, this is the worst. After your deducible is met, you pay %25. This adds up when you have to see specialists. $600 for hospitalizations. WE PROVIDE HEALTHCARE and you can't take better care of your employees?!
    -Hired as a full time employee and RARELY get full time hours. Often cancelled 2 shifts a week.
    -Poor communication from managers. Training is all over the place, multiple, preceptors, no communication about what to expect in orientation, preceptors aren't compensated and don't do a good job.
    - Policies are in place and not followed
      1) supposed to be called a minimum of 2 hours before a shift - NEVER EVER happens. Literally not one time
    2) No call back pay
    3) Supposed to work all shifts for first 90 days as you can't use any PTO but I have been called off a lot without PTO to use.
    3) Called off, then called back to come in, then called back and asked to actually come at 11:00pm....this is the standard practice. When this is communicated with management, they become defensive "There was no way for me to know that staffing was going to change...."
    4) hired to work on one floor, regularly sent elsewhere without proper training. You have to complain about everything to not get taken advantage of.

    No in-person classes for nursed. Everything is online BLS, ACLS, NRP... everything. They are cheap and provide the bare minimum for education to employees. It's not safe.
    Staff meetings are set up and then repeatedly canceled which further leads to poor communication and therefore poor morale.
    Nearly everyone in my department is actively looking for other work.

    Advice to Management

    See above. Stop worrying about the $$ and actually invest in the staff you hire. If you worried half as much about keeping the staff you have as the money spent on stupid things like peanut butter (seriously), you wouldn't be spending so much on hiring and hiring and hiring.
