More Pros and Cons

  1. "A good Miami employer"

    Pros

    This is a very good hospital, obsessed with customer service/public image, which translates to “running a very tight ship.” Morale seems to be for the most part very high

    Cons

    Be extremely careful taking a job anywhere in Miami if you are not familiar with Miami workplace culture. Some workplaces are fine, and in the case of this particular employer, it depends on which department or shift you are working in.
    Wikipedia has some articles which summarize pretty well some of the behaviors that are seen as normal in Miami workplaces. “Machiavellianism in the Workplace” and “character assassination” are two good ones.
    If for some reason you must earn a living in Miami, it would be best to at least know a few people in any job before taking it.

    Advice to Management

    management are already trying to deal with these problems. They aren’t ignoring it

    Many benefits that begin from day one.

    Cons

    Many of the employees are not familiar with the procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your employees to learn how to do their jobs rather then degelating their work to other employees. No should have to do the work that they are getting paid to do.

    You can accumulate up to 400 PTO hours, amazing coworkers and great work atmosphere

    Cons

    Below market pay, corporate and administration moves at a snails pace while the company grows too fast for it to handle it

    Implement new changes and procedures slowly, don’t start huge new revamps in processes till the previous ones have been properly adopted.

    Tuition reimbursement: $2000 for associates degree and $4000 bachelors a year.

    Some departments still work with paper records. You can accumulate vacation hours but if there is a hurricane and your outpatient center closes they don’t pay you if you don’t have hours saved. Or they go into negative PTO.
