      Negatives far outweigh the few positives

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      403(b) plan has good investment options There is a pension Good place to coast if you land a nice position, minimal effort required IT has been remote since Covid started

      Cons

      These are IT department specific: * Pay is below market rates for similar roles * Raises are NOT performance based and cap at 5%, it is a zero sum event. A leader has a fixed pool of $ to spread around to all of their reports, meaning team members that slack are likely getting the same raise as someone else who is busting their hump. * Nearly impossible to terminate poor performers, makes a great place to land a position and coast without fear of consequences * Terrible place for entry level grunt work, little room for advancement or learning * Have merged with 3 other hospitals but the department head count has actually gone DOWN, fewer people, more work. * Escalatory office, be ready to have people run to upper management if they don't get their way * Slow organization, do not expect anything to get done quickly here (unless they escalate, see above) * Siloed and poor communication between the two halves of IT, not all teams work well with others

      Worst Hospital Ever

      Sep 20, 2021 - PCT/CNA 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The only pro is you get to help people and some of those times can be very rewarding.

      Cons

      -Horrible pay for the amount of work is done, dont expect a normal raise. -Horrible Management, they love playing favoritism. -Most nurses are very unhelpful and will not help you or take the initiative to help you. -Heavy work-load and the patient to pct ration is ridiculous. -This place will burn you out and they DO NOT care, you have to beg for time off or to even use your PTO that you worked so hard for.

      Pros

      Best reason is some co workers were nice. I'm trying to come up with good reasons, but really, its hard. Healthcare...so we always had work. They were consistent. My direct supervisor was excellent!!!

      Cons

      The lead management team was very unreliable. It took them 6 months to tell me no to a shift change. When I put in my notice, they said I could make the shift change.

      Just enough to be fine

      Jul 4, 2021 - Physical Therapist 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good PTO (approx 20-25 days per year). One on one with patients. Newer equipment. Awesome coworker therapist and aides. Clean facilities. Epic EMR is great.

      Cons

      You'll get worked hard. Then worked harder each year. The stress on productivity continues to increase. Lunch is 45 minutes long and 30 min of that is unpaid. Waitlist to get patients in is several weeks which leads to frustration from patients at you. Management will ask team their opinion on changes and then completely ignore it. Definitely a "do what we want you to do" culture rather than "we want to hear from you"

      Keeps acquiring and expanding but hiring more to be efficient.

      Pros

      The company is getting bigger. Now there's too much workload. They're too cheap to hire more people to cover everyday workload.

      Cons

      Management can be condescending at times. New employees are not being trained properly. There is not enough resources for training.
