-Majority of the time you work with some amazing professional staff. -Work load is reasonably paced, can be feast or famine. -One of the better hosptial networks to work for.
-Significant changes in leadership rocked the boat hard enough to create waves of resignation across all departments. - Since the pandemic, management tends to lean heavier on increasing revenue than providing quality care and listening to their employers. -Extremely low pay allocated for certain clinical staff when compared to national average, does not adjust pay based on inflation. -Decreased continuing education funding replaced by corporate education through online platforms. Any in-person CE course needs approval by management to determine “if it fits the clinic needs.” - Questionable support for individual growth in the career.7

Benefits and PTO. Exposure to complex cases when treating patients. Good for new grads to get experience under the belt. Good for those going to retire within 8 years to coast through.
Does not support therapist growth, management is clueless about department morale, pay is horribly low, management is not motivating and can be unprofessional, too much department drama

Work Life Balance and the work itself is actually fulfilling
Culture is non existent. Employees don't understand how to communicate or create relationships. On the other hand, I appreciate all healthcare workers, really but anyone in corporate/operations are always forgotten. Corporate doesn't even have a kitchen but the nurses get a new relaxing room with massage chairs. They don't even provide computers to corporate employees unless you're in management. Ridiculous.1

I had a good Schedule, benefits, experience,
Low pay hard to advance. Is who you know not what you know. You can have a masters in your field but someone with less education could get the promotion

The nurses are great at really caring for each patient as an individual and nut just a room number.
The company keeps expanding with other hospitals t create bigger healthcare system and employs are consider just in numbers.
