    I worked at Miami Valley Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is a great place to start out as a floor nurse. I learned so much there. It was a hectic floor I was on but the nurse manager was supportive and had our backs. Great teamwork as RN's and PCT's as well.

    Cons

    It is a large corporation and regimented of course- there are standards to follow but I would definitely work there again in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the staff and tell them!

    I have been working at Miami Valley Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I work 3 days a week for full time. I work with great people. I love my job. Teamwork is great.

    Cons

    The benefits are horrible. I feel like I am getting no where with my pay. I dislike that it is impossible to achieve outstanding without breaking a leg. Maternity leave is only 9.5 weeks and then you have to take the rest off unpaid because they only let you save 256 hours of TOP.

    Advice to Management

    Obtain better insurance options. Consider hard working RNs and reward their commitment. I have seen so many people come and go from Premier. They have been rewarded for coming back...but where is the reward for those RNs that stay loyal to Premier/Miami Valley? It makes me want to leave and come back so the opportunity for reward could be there for me, too. I have been with premier for 6 years. All that has happened is TOP time has been decreased so I cannot even take a full maternity leave (with my own hours that I have to save up to spend), insurance rates have gone way up (and UHC battle has made matters worse for everyone!), and my pay reflects that of every RN (whether good or bad) so I feel like why break my leg when I can never achieve anything other than avarage without doing so. I consider myself a very hard working RN and give 110% when I am at work to advocate for my patients and provided the highest quality of care to contribute for a good name for Miami Valley Hospital. I see other people leave and then come back and get rewarded several thousands of dollars but all I get for staying loyal to Premier is my time off pay taken away, an average pay raise, and no perks for staying a loyal employee. Over and over again Premier preaches patient satifaction but never do they care about employee satisfaction. Overall, I love the department I am in and the people I work with but satisfaction can be greatly approved my many of my fellow RNs by providing a reward to stay loyal to premier and making a reward that is achievable for being a great RN instead of always being put in the same category with the RNs that just do the bare minimum.

    I worked at Miami Valley Hospital (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Frontline staff (in all areas) and some committed middle management

    Cons

    Administration's focus on Studer leaves them far more disconnected than they realize, Their focus is what is entered in the computer; there is no actual follow up with the staff to see if the rounding is being done. Managers that are staffing are marginalized even when it is due to short staffing and is being well communicated. VP does not follow up when there is a clear disconnect between Director and Managers. COO and CEO involve themselves too late in issues and do not get the entire story. In 32 years of my career-15 years at MVH with 3 prior administrations I have never seen such myopic, preconceived views. The staff engagement scores have plummeted .

    Advice to Management

    This is for administration; not middle management. Less focus on Studer computer input and more focus actual staff feedback. Respond to and ac upon deliverables with measurable outcomes.

    I have been working at Miami Valley Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large network of hospitals with varied opprotunities for experience

    Cons

    Many staffing issues, limited resources at times.

    Advice to Management

    Advocate for adequate staffing, maintain staffing and acutity standards. Just because we are surviving with limited staff doesn't mean we should work that way all the time.

    Petty encounters with office staff.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have really any advice to provide to management at this time
