    Pros

    Officially part of the 1199 SEIU, Benefits, depending on job (good environment), if there was more

    Cons

    Alienation of employees (by other employees or even Supervisors), some or most hire-up are not personally involved with their staff and if they are it's mostly out of picking favorites or comfortability factor, Not much of a good environment to get along with people, Tough learning curve, Hard to get promoted from within, mostly everything you do even little things are often critiqued, hate working weekends.

    Possible placement of lithium in the water supply which is why I avoid drinking from their fountains.

    Advice to Management

    Work on personal development with ALL your employees and not the ones you feel you are okay with. Give people who work within the company (men and women) same equal eternal hiring process cause there really isn't none;

    Pros

    It's a great place to get experience. You see everything there. Depending on your manager, it is easy to transfer to other units for more/different work experience.

    Cons

    The patient load can be heavy a lot of times. You talk to management about it being too heavy and the acuity too high, but they don't do anything to change it.
    It's often hard to find the equipment/supplies you need to do your job.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just look at the census, also look at the acuity of the patients when staffing units.
