    I worked at Murphy Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Ability to continue education. Autonomous and facility allowed the best care

    Cons

    Outpatient slowed down, Hospital selling nursing home. Not enough marketing MN co-pays became a problem for Medicare patients. Private owned business down the road was able to negotiate co-pays. Management was not interested in becoming a CORF as Haywood did. Needed a hand surgeon on board for hand therapy.

    I worked at Murphy Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers with the exception of manager's "pets". Abundant amount of overtime available in some departments.

    Cons

    Bullying from managers and supervisors.
    No positive feedback for performance.
    Expect nursing staff to work absurd amounts of overtime in some departments.
    Understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes. Talk to the staff that are performing the direct patient care about what they deal with when it comes to management.

    I have been working at Murphy Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gives you full time and plenty of hours as compared to a lot of places in the area. Somewhat decent starting pay.

    Cons

    Management is terrible, I work in the Nursing Home part of the hospital and it is the biggest mess. It has an insanely high turnover rate because it's so understaffed, to the point that it's probably illegal some days. You never get a raise, so there's no incentive to stay there. People who have worked there ten years get paid the same as new hires. The administration does not listen to employee concerns. They won't work with you on your schedule if you're going to school or have outside obligations. So many times I've heard of people requesting to have certain days of the week off, but then being scheduled only those days for spite. Worst administration I've ever seen. The clinical employees there work their butts off, and I think that's the only reason the place hasn't crashed.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up administration in the nursing home, they need an eye opening. People who do schedules should be approachable and willing to help, not looking for ways to screw over employees. Give some raises or some kind of incentive to stay with the company. Stop making empty promises and telling employees that you can't afford to give raises after telling them how much money the company is saving because of them and how much money is being given to the community.

    I worked at Murphy Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are absolutely positively none!

    Cons

    Worst management that has ever existed in the history of mankind! They care nothing for their employees, just warm bodies and numbers. Provide all this 'mandatory training' for staff to be more caring and attentive to the patients, etc...but that is not where the problems are. The clinical staff is amazing, the management, however, is the 'good ol boy' system. As long as you are a local and related to somebody else in the community you are safe, even if you are dumb as a box of rocks. Many management and especially upper management positions are held by extremely incompetent people.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house, start at the top
