    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with, lots of opportunity.

    Cons

    Total lack of communication from management. No one knows what office is going to be where from day to day. There seems to be no loyalty to employees who have been with NCH for several years. Pay is no where near competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees ideas/thoughts/concerns. Be open and honest about the future of our group. Show loyalty towards loyal employees. Value and recognize hard work.

    I have been working at NCH Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was a Pathways designated hospital, but lost re-designation even with second try. Was on the Magnet journey. Not sure anymore. Beautiful location to live off season.

    Cons

    Unable to meet nurses' basic expectations for renewing Pathways. High cost of housing and impressive traffic, without compensation compared to other States.

    Advice to Management

    Change admin culture of budget first, patients second. Nurses cogs in the wheel.

    I have been working at NCH Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Excellent staff to work with both in therapy departments and throughout the hospitals.

    Cons

    Extremely poor office space for therapy staff at North NCH campus. Apparent lack of respect for extremely competent, necessary and what should be valued staff members. Lack of space to access computers away from general hospital floors which are becoming more and more dedicated to medical and case management staff. Therapy "office" with minimal space for computer access and lunch breaks too small to accommodate more than about half of the staff (large bathroom size).

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your staff! Give them appropriate space to do the professional work you expect (and receive) from them. There is not nearly enough documentation space on the floors and much of it is frequently "reserved" for other disciplines but not for therapists. Nursing staff, although they have computers on wheels, frequently take over the desk computers.

    Pros

    Great organization to work for and competitive benefits as well.

    Cons

    I can say I have a con at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Cafeteria on site with lots of choices. Training is very thorough. People are super friendly and willing to help. Depending on the management, they are helpful with growth opportunities

    Cons

    Paid holidays comes from your hard earned PTO hours. So for mandatory holidays such as Christmas, you're forced to use 8 hours of your PTO hours.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time investing in your current employees for growth and change the PTO policy.

    Its great to live in this paradise

    Cons

    company does not invest in their employees
    very seasonal as far as business and job security
    does not pay enough to even live in this area

    Advice to Management

    don't treat employees as they are completely despensable

    Pros

    I loved my coworkers, we were a great team.

    Cons

    Management are like politicians, not to be trusted.

    Advice to Management

    I took a 40,000. pay cut coming to NCH, I knew there would be a decrease in salary, but this is outrageous. When the techs have kids they are eligible for food stamps, & yet the top ranks have high salaries, raises, and bonuses.

    Pros

    Awesome SLP manager and great colleagues. Large system with multiple levels of care from acute (including two hospitals) to inpatient rehab, LTAC, and several outpatient rehab facilities. Excellent benefit package that includes programs for employee to improve health and activity level. Good pay for hourly with no benefits. Site-wide effort to become Blue Zone rated. Clean facilities and well organized. Low caseload during off-season. Excellent program for seasonal employees. Reimbursement for CEUs.

    Cons

    Working in outpatient rehab requires working with adults and peds. Low pay for full-time SLPs who also need benefit package. Cross trained in all levels of care to support weekend coverage, however pay is not commensurate with high skill level expected. PT earn the most, then OT, then SLP. Salary not inline with high cost of living in Naples, FL. Very high caseload during season, especially in acute.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the advanced training of and high level of care provided by SLPs and raise their salaries to be inline with national standards. Senior management need to educate themselves as to the role and importance of SLPs and open a dialogue to improving salaries.
