    Pros

    two years of experience unwinding that business included substantive experience in managing complex financials, operations, and people situations that made her a unique and desirable candidate.

    Cons

    you need to do your research into the workplace and get as realistic a picture as possible of what is happening there.

    Pros

    Considering the size - 3000+ employees- the culture is very tight-knit and welcoming. Most of the leadership is well respected and worked their way up. Benefits are amazing- who offers a pension plan anymore??! Also decisions are made based on what’s best for the patient, no corporatation making decisions from another state.

    Cons

    Change takes a long time here due to size but also longevity of its employees. Many people have worked here for 20+ years and like doing things the way it’s always been done.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of managers and employees who can’t or won’t grow professionally

    I worked at North Kansas City Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The management at North Kansas City Hospital was supportive of their nursing staff and flexible. They care about their nurses. It is a nice place to work.

    Cons

    Like many hospitals in town, their were often times that nurses were understaffed. Also, the pay is much less than other places in town.

    Advice to Management

    Being more compatible with pay and trying to keep staffing ratios. Otherwise, North Kansas City Hospital does a great job taking care of their staff.

    Pros

    Love atmosphere and the work i do.

    I worked at North Kansas City Hospital full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent learning opportunities, for the right individual. Diverse patient population, which always brings an array of interesting medical problems.

    Cons

    Favoritism is a huge problem, management has changed so much over the last 10 years, would not be in my opinion, employer of choice! Micro-management at it's finest!

    Advice to Management

    Employee's are the face of the company, each one has something to offer and most truly care about the job they are doing. The patient is primary concern, however the stress of having to watch your back for 12 hours everyday and take the focus away from our reason for coming to work is a great disservice to those we care for! Please remember not only do you cause the employee to question their own worth, which in turn compromises patient care.
